Full time: Manchester United Women 2-3 Manchester City Women

After an extended finish to the game, Man City have come away as victors in this Manchester Derby.

This was a thoroughly entertaining FA Cup game, brought to life by the introduction of Lauren James. Her arrival off the bench galvanised the United side, and Zelem's creativity was also brought to the fore. Yet Manchester City's superior quality shone throughout, and they were good value for their money, with Ellen White at her prolific, goalscoring best.

GOAL: Manchester United Women 2-3 Manchester City Women (Hemp o.g.)

Another Katie Zelem set piece creates havoc amognst the indecisive defence of Man City, and is turned in by a city player, perhaps Lauren Hemp, to brign them right back into the contest. Squeaky bum time for the Citizens. 3 minutes left of normal time.

GOAL: Manchester United Women 1-3 Manchester City Women (Scott)

Scott makes it 3! An almost innocuous effort from the edge of the box, perhaps aided by a slight deflection, somehow evades the gloves of Earps, who dives extremely late to her detriment. That 2 goal cushion returns.

Close for Manchester United Women

BIG MOMENT! Roebuck claws the ball out from a McManus tap in and the goal ISN'T given. The United players go crazy in celebration! No goaline technology to help us and it remains 2-1 to the away side. United are well and truly on top here.

GOAL: Manchester United Women 1-2 Manchester City Women (James)

LAUREN JAMES INSTANT IMPACT! James times a brilliant run in between the two City cbs, cuts inside Gemma Bonner and arrows a left footed strike beyond Roebuck.  No stopping that. GAME ON!
15:068 months ago

Hanson finds too much space down the left and draws a brilliant save from Roebuck in net to keep the lead at 2 goals.

GOAL: Manchester United Women 0-2 Manchester City Women (White)

DEVASTATING FROM ELLEN WHITE! A delightful cutback by Lauren Hemp is met by the striker who gets across McManus quickly and prods past a helpless Earps. Should be game.

Roebuck under pressure parries a fizzing Zelem corner straight into the head of McManus who nods wide.
14:558 months ago

A brilliant break from City finds Wullaert who cuts inside onto her left foot. She shanks her left footed strike almost inexcusably wide of the far post. Should have been breathing space.

Half time: Manchester United Women 0-1 Manchester City Women

A tetchy first 45 minutes comes to a close. Both sides have struggled to play out, notably the usually assured Steph Houghton who has given the ball away on more than one occasion. Jess Sigsworth should have got United ahead, and the irony lies in the fact that Ellen White was the beneficiary of another defensive mistake down the other end. City's attacking prowess has told, but this game could  certainly do with a bit more quality all across the pitch.

Added time

2 minutes of added time... Jill Scott remains down and looks in some pain.
14:178 months ago

GOAL: Manchester United Women 0-1 Manchester City Women (White)

This game has been marred by a number of misplaced passes. Of all players to give the ball to, Abbie McManus invites Ellen White to steal through on goal. She still has work to do and with only the goalkeeper to beat, she deaftly lifts it over Earps into the bottom left corner to make it her first of the afternoon.
14:138 months ago

Houghton rises high from a corner but her header is straight at Earps. The newly contracted England defender has been in the thick of things.
14:118 months ago

Close for United!

Another TERRIBLE ball out from the box by Roebuck is met by Siggsworth who should do better. City desperately lucky to not be 1-0 down here.
14:098 months ago

City are struggling to deal with the United press. Jackie Groenen this time the player to intercept a poor Houghton pass. Lucky for the CB, the deflection helps her out. 
14:028 months ago

Keira Walsh delivers a brilliant ball over the top to find Jill Scott down the right, yet her delivery is too high for England counterpart White at the far post. Demi Stokes retrieves.
13:578 months ago


Tessa Wullaert breezes past captain Zelem and plays in Ellen White for her first opportunity of the game. She opens up her body but Earps gets down smartly to palm away for a corner!
13:518 months ago

Interesting to see Georgia Stanway at right back again today. Houghton and Roebuck have started sloppily on the ball yet City appear to have began in the ascendancy.

Ellen White gets Manchester CIty going.

Katie Zelem and Steph Houghton lead the sides out. Kickoff in 3.

Last time out

Manchester United won their last game against City, here's what happened on the day

10:128 months ago

Reds captain looking forward to Sunday's tie

Speaking to MUTV this week, United captain Katie Zelem said:

“I've practised a lot on my penalties and free kicks and it looks like it's starting to pay off. That was my aim for this season to be honest,” she said, “especially as I'm playing a bit higher up the pitch.”

“Manchester City are a very good side, but we've beaten them before and hopefully we go into it with the same mindset, that we can come out with a good result again.  

”The FA Cup is huge. I mean, the final is at Wembley, so what game is bigger than that? We're in the semi-finals of the Conti Cup, so if we can match or better that, that would be brilliant.“

Ellen White excited for first Derby

Ellen White has missed both of the first two derbies for City through a knee injury in pre-season. Speaking to this week, she spoke about her excitement for the game: 

“We can’t wait for the game but now it’s about rest and recovery. There will be no difference in terms of preparation. We’ll train hard and look to perform when it matters.

“These wins in the past few days have also given us confidence and momentum for the games coming up. Nothing changes for us.
“We’ll be very diligent and professional in our preparation and approach.”

United aiming to make it 2 out of 3 on derby day

Manchester United comfortably won 2-0 the last time that the derby was played back in October. Jess Sigsworth and Katie Zelem were the goalscorers, and Keira Walsh was sent off rather controversially for the blues - resulting in a three-match ban.

This time, however, City are in much finer form after a slump during October that also saw them be knocked out from the Champions League, and United may not be able to cope with the newfound form of Pauline Bremer and Ellen White's attacking partnership.

City looking to carry on winning streak

This derby could have a different result from the previous. They have won eleven of their previous twelve games, and are on a winning streak since the end of the winter break. Nick Cushing has developed a new tactical style for the blues with Pauline Bremer up top, more attacking football, and fluidity going forward.
