Manchester City Women vs. Manchester United Women - Football Match Report

Manchester City Women vs. Manchester United Women - Football Match Report”

Most of United's positive play in the first half came through Galton, using both her pace and passing to create chances.

The host's only chance of note came on 19 minutes when Caroline Weir saw her effort well saved by Mary Earps.

City's manager Nick Cushing commenting on the game: "Whether it was the first game of the season or it was hangover from the global break or the occasion, I didn't think our level was as high as it could be but I thought for the second half for 25 minutes at the start we really showed our level and how we can push a team back and how we can dominate the ball and create chances and we know that's our level".

"It was an unbelievable strike by Caroline Weir". It was an act of class which only further energised City who controlled the game.

Walsh heads into the new season after featuring for England in their run to the World Cup semi-finals in the summer, and for a time it looked as if she might leave City.

Exciting things are happening in the world of women's football.

Even for Houghton, the Lionesses captain with a bulging medal collection, it was a day that will live long in the memory and she says the sense of occasion was not lost on the players.

"Support is coming from all places". Chelsea and Tottenham's London derby at Stamford Bridge is expected to be near-capacity too - that's nearly 41,000 people cheering on one of the league's best teams and one of the newest.

"They won a lot of first and second balls and seemed to want it a little bit more". We just have to make sure we play a football game and everyone else enjoys the occasion.

Manchester United manager and former England worldwide Casey Stoney thinks a bottom-up approach would be better.

At that stage, when sunlit September afternoons become an inevitably bleak English winter, the domestic football season reverts to a slog that feelgood factors and a sense of novelty alone can not sustain.

"[The reaction from fans this summer] has been incredible", the United boss said.

In between heroics from Roebuck and Weir, Groenen found herself briefly squared up to the City goalscorer - a late tackle having touched a calf and a nerve.

In the last 30 Manchester derby meetings in the Premier League alone, some 125 yellow cards and one red card have been brandished by officials across the two sides.

Hopes were high that they would break the WSL attendance record for the second time in their history, having first done it with a crowd of 2,510 at Tooting & Mitcham's The Hub - a sports ground in south London - in 2011. We are excited to see where our crowds go.

"If we step back now and don't push on, we'll lose that window to really push forward", Chelsea defender Millie Bright said.
