Women’s FA Cup: Manchester City Women 3-0 Liverpool Women

Substitute Gerogia Stanway took just three minutes to score her first against Liverpool after replacing Janine Beckie

Manchester City Women remain on course for a treble after two Georgia Stanway goals helped them overcome Liverpool to reach the FA Cup semi-finals.

Janine Beckie fired home from close range to put City ahead at the break.

Substitute Stanway made it 2-0 with a neat finish and added a third late on to ensure City progressed to the last four for the fifth successive year.

City, who are top of the Women’s Super League, won the League Cup in February after beating Arsenal in the final.

Seven spots and 25 points separate the two sides in the Women’s Super League table, but Manchester City were made to work hard in the first half.

Beckie finished what was a rare chance in the opening 45 minutes for the hosts, swapping passes with Caroline Weir in the box before firing into the roof of the net.

Rinsola Babajide was a constant menace for Liverpool, with the striker producing their finest moment of the game with a dipping shot from outside the box that tested Karen Bardsley in City’s goal.

It took just three minutes for Stanway to make an impact after replacing Beckie, racing into the box to meet a pass from Nikita Parris before slipping the ball past Anke Preuss.

A fiercely-stuck third from Stanway was the pick of the goals and sent City into Monday’s draw in fine style.
