The Manchester clubs met on the opening day of the WSL season at the Etihad Stadium on 7 September which City won 1-0.

Since then City, who are the Continental Cup holders, have won seven of their eight games in all competitions, the only blip coming in midweek with a draw in the Champions League against Atletico Madrid.

Initially Utd struggled in the debut WSL season but seemed to have found their feet with victories in their last two games.

In the Continental Cup the team winning in the 90 minutes claim the tree points. But if there scores are level after normal time it's straight into a penalty shoot-out with the victors taking two points and the losers one point.

And it was Utd who took advantage in the 7th minute . A free kick on the edge of the penalty area was curled delightfully beyond the diving Ellie Roebuck by skipperKatie Zelem.

This stunned City into action and for the remainder of the half they dominated with all of their pressure coming from out wide but the varying quality of crosses, particularly from Janine Beckie, enabled Utd to clear any danger.

Utd were content to defend and take their chances on the counterattack and just before the interval it almost paid off when Kirsty Hanson shot from distance and Roebuck had to palm over at full stretch.

City clearly hadn't learned their lesson from the first half and conceding again within 9 minutes of the restart.Hanson showed the value of a quality cross and Jess Sigsworth was in the right place to fire home.

The victor's task got harder on 65 minutes when they were reduced to ten men after Keira Walsh was shown a straight red for a late challenge on Hanson.

Utd then easily held out for their first points in their first game in this season's Continental Cup.

For City it was simply one of those days when they never really recovered from conceding early at the start of both halves and whilst they had plenty of possession, particularly in the first half, they lacked a cutting edge to get back into the game.

Utd showed them how to take their chances and once Walsh had been sent off the final result was never in doubt.

Full Time

Man Utd: 2 (Zelem 7, Sigsworth 54)

Man City: 0

Att: 4,042

Venue: Leigh Sports Village Stadium

Fernandinho again filled in at centre-half on the day.

He said: "We just tried to play our style of football and our philosophy. In the first half we scored two goals and controlled the game but at the end of the game they brought on Benteke and he caused some problems for us but Ederson was superb to make the saves.

"They started to play long balls and high balls for their tall players. But if we scored the goals from the chances we created it would have been a different game."

On playing at centre-back, he added: "It was fine. In the first half we controlled out actions and didn't concede any chances. But in the second half we dropped our concentration but overall we were better and deserved the win."The Premier League is so tough, so hard, so we just try to win our games and do our job. We focus on winning every game. That is all we can do."

Palace lost 2-0 at home to City on Saturday,

But Cahill says: "I thought the second half was slightly better than the first half. I thought both keepers were outstanding. I don't know how Ederson kept out Benteke's header - it had power and direction.

"When they have good possession and you try and squeeze up the ball in behind is always available. We knew it would be tough. They killed us with the goals, obviously with the first but the second being so quick as well.

"I think the second half always opens up a bit because people get tired. You could sense Manchester City knew they had to win that and they did."

Despite playing midfielders Fernandinho and Rodri at centre-back, City could have won by a street and might have done if Wilfried Zaha had been punished for a push on Kevin De Bruyne.

Guardiola replied with angry sarcasm when asked about the incident, which VAR also ruled did not warrant a spot-kick.

The Manchester City boss said: He's diving. Every week he's diving. But against Tottenham it was handball in the 94th minute."

Guardiola was probably referring to the controversial VAR decision to deny Gabriel Jesus a stoppage-time winner against Spurs earlier this season, after Aymeric Laporte was adjudged to have helped the ball on with his arm.

Asked whether he was angry, Guardiola replied: Of course I am. For a long time."

"I tried a header, but I think it hit my shoulder!" Jesus said.

"I have to improve this side because I sometimes have difficulties with headers. What a cross from Bernardo as well.

"A little bit lucky!"

City want to keep him out of the clutches of Real Madrid, says the Daily Express.

The Spanish giants are keeping tabs on Sterling, who has been transformed into one of the best players in the world by Pep Guardiola.

It was only last November that the Premier League champions handed Sterling a three-year extension to his current deal which now sees him pick up around 300,000 a week.

It made him Manchester City's second-highest-paid player behind midfield playmaker Kevin De Bruyne, who currently earns around 350,000 a week.

And they are now ready to make the England international the Premier League's top earner to cut down on the likelihood of a 200million move by Real from succeeding.

Sancho had returned late from international duty with the England squad and was dropped for the win over Borussia Monchengladbach.

"We did not make the decision easily, but it was without alternative. Sancho is an excellent player, but we have a responsibility for the club, for the spirit in the team," said Zorc.

BVB coach Lucien Favre also spoke of the former Manchester City winger: "Jadon is a great player, not a discussion. But he still has a lot to learn. He must continue to enjoy training and progress."
