Manchester City 3-1 Everton

FULL-TIME: That’s it! City battle back from a goal down to deservedly take all three points in this opening round of League Cup group game fixtures.

Goals from Rose Lavelle, Chloe Kelly and Jess Park cancel out Danielle Turner’s opener to maintain Gareth Taylor’s side’s unbeaten run at the start of the 2020/21 campaign.

90+3 min: GOAL! Christiansen playing in that quarter-back role as she tries to get something going at the end here. But it’s Kelly who gets her foot on the ball.

City work the ball to the right-hand side and Park bundles her way through before firing into the top corner from such a tight angle! How did she get that in?!

90+2 min: SUB! Game management again from City. Janine Beckie into the fray for Rose Lavelle. The American marks her first start with a goal. No doubt if crowds were in the stands she would have received a raucous reception there.

90+1 min: The free-kick is dealt with comfortable but there’s a bit of pressure on City now. All those subs mean they will have to play at least another four minutes here…

90 min: Into the final minute of normal time. Everton have a throw on the half way line. Can they find anything late on?

Manchester City 2-1 Everton

89 min: Stokes, Walsh and Kelly exchange neat triangles as the Everton players look spent. The Toffees have been dogged, but they look to finally be coming unstuck (as Toffees do if you pull them hard enough).

87 min: Weir looks to find Park but can’t quite get it right and the ball rolls away.

The City defenders playing it around neatly in their own half now with just three minutes of the 90 left to play here.

84 min: Everton through in their own half as they look to conjure something up in the final few minutes here.

The visitors do look a little leggy now as the quality of Manchester City’s midfield looks to be showing a little.
