City down to 10. Shocking challenge.

City have been the better side so far but now down to 10, a terrible challenge by Stanway on Galton. United need to be better at progressing the ball, I'm not mad on the balance of the midfield, if they can then they now have a great chance to win this game.

And straight away City score, for feck's sake.

1-0 City. Shaw.
Far too much space given to a team down a player.

Midfield pairing of groenen and zelem not working again. Groenen gets crowded out and zelem seems out of sorts.

We need another option other than kicking it long for Galton to run onto. Had limited success with it so far.

City started really nervously...we should have kept a boot on their neck but they've grown into the game and look more threatening.

Hemp is causing us so many problems.

That was pretty nice by Toone. Decent save as well.

Seeing many similarities with the men’s team here. Punt it forward and hope someone gets on to it. An extremely gifted player who shoots too much when others are in better positions. Just seems weird you’ve got people as good as Zelem and Jackie and play them deep to fit Toone in. Is Ladd injured?

Good to know our women's team is as useless as the men's team

Yeah it's embarrassing when you barely lay a glove on a team down to 10 players and missing 5/6 big players

1-1 Staniforth. A quick short corner catches City out.

What was she just thinking there. Just keep going then slot it on your left. Hopefully City crumble here. As I say that let’s go Russo!!!!

1-1! The officials have been absolutely shit, they've flagged United multiple times when players have been nowhere near off, didn't give Galton a clear penalty but thankfully have now missed Staniforth right in front of the keeper clearly offside to equalise.
Yeah, felt that might well be a penalty.

2-1!

Need a week where A United side doesn't disappoint me. This will definitely work.

Unlucky Earps, some save the initial one.

Feel like some subs need to be made as a few look dead on their feet.

A draw is probably a fair result based on the game. Should've maybe done better 11 v 10 though.

Does Skinner know we are allowed to make subs? Zelem should have been subbed after 60 mins easily for Ladd or Vilde, but I guess she is guaranteed to play? I just dont understand why City making sub after sub and we do nothing. Its not like Zelem is a better player than Boe Rise or Ladd, so fresh legs should take priority.

We played against 10, and could have used extra energy to break them down. Shocking defending on 2-2 goal all across sadly. Really amazing save by Mary, a shame it did not pay off!

2-2 in the end, good to fight back from a goal down and get something but given how depleted City are and that they were down to 10 for an hour it's not a great result. The squad isn't as good as it was last year and the manager is vastly inferior so any hopes of improving and making top 3 are dependant on one of Chelsea, City and Arsenal having a really below par season, a win today would have given us a 9 point advantage over City, who have been struggling but will pick up, but overall a draw was a fair result.

First time watching the women’s team and was really enjoyable. Not watched the women’s game for a long time but you can see the quality has come on leaps and bounds although maybe not so much with the assistant refs, some odd decisions by the linos. Will be definitely be watching again though
