Scottish midfielder Caroline Weir scored an amazing late heave as Manchester City beat Manchester United 3-0 to jump their opponents into second spot in the FA Women’s Super League on a cold Friday night.
Full-back Lucy Bronze gave City the lead halfway through the main half as United neglected to clear a corner and she drove the free ball home through a horde of bodies. Lauren Hemp added a second for the hosts with a bobbing drive in the 71st moment.
City held back something special for later as Weir got the ball right fresh and jinked outside prior to sending a consummately weighted hurl over Mary Earps into the net in the 84th moment to wrap up the three focuses.
The success moved City up to second spot in the standings on 33 focuses, two behind pioneers Chelsea after 14 games.
Joined’s second thrashing straight implied they slipped to third put on 32 focuses having played 15 games.
