Manchester United Women were been beaten at Old Trafford by Manchester City on Sunday, in front of a crowd of 43,615 – a record home attendance for our women’s team.


Reds skipper Katie Zelem opened the scoring in the first half of the Barclays Women’s Super League fixture, slotting home a spot-kick after Alex Greenwood was penalised for a handball in the box. A quick one-two from City saw them complete the comeback before the interval, thanks to goals from Jill Roord and Lauren Hemp.


Khadija ‘Bunny’ Shaw sealed the victory for the visitors in the second half, quickly closing down Mary Earps’s clearance to force the ball into the back of an empty net.


Despite the disappointing result, which sees us slip to fourth in the league, the Reds once again made pushed the boundaries and made further history in the process.
