Man Utd 2-2 Man City: Dramatic derby ends in draw despite Stanway red card for City

Manchester City overcame the sending off of Georgia Stanway to claim a point against Manchester United in a pulsating Women’s Super League derby.

Substitute Ellen White poked in a rebound from Jess Park’s long-range stunner to make it 2-2 after United had scored two goals in three minutes.

City were down to 10 players following Stanway’s straight red card for an ugly challenge on Leah Galton in the 35th minute.

And while Gareth Taylor’s side responded superbly to take the lead through Khadija Shaw’s header, United’s quickfire double meant City had to fight back to earn a much-needed draw.

It was a frantic second half in particular and one which encapsulates a topsy-turvy season for City, but some pressure on manager Taylor will have been relieved with this battling draw away from home.

In contrast, it felt like a missed opportunity for United and manager Marc Skinner, taking charge of his first derby, and they remain without a win over City in four meetings in the WSL.
