QNET celebrates Manchester City Women’s team’s success
Manchester City had a highly successful season in 2021. They finished second in the Women’s Super League for the fourth consecutive time, missing the title by a whisker. Moreover, their performances have been top-notch, with the women’s team inspiring us throughout the campaign.
They started the 2021 calendar year in scintillating style! Their first game was at home against Aston Villa. Manchester City women completely dominated the match with a 7-0 scoreline. City forward Lauren Hemp got the ball rolling, as City scored in the second minute of the match. She would go on to score her second goal in the 38th minute. Manchester City was flawless during the first half, scoring 6 goals past Villa. They added another one in the second half for a resounding win.
They followed the amazing performance at Villa with yet another 7 goals against Brighton and Hove Albion. Caroline Weir and club captain Steph Houghton scored a brace each as City was in control from the first minute. They also recorded an impressive statistic of almost 80% possession during the game. In a word, City’s gameplay was a reflection of sheer “dominance”!
Manchester City women weren’t done as they capped the month with a 4-0 win over West Ham United. City again recorded a majority possession of 77% with 25 shots against the Hammers. Manchester City was in blistering form, and nobody would have doubted their contention of lifting the Women’s Super League title.
However, they narrowly missed out on the title by 2 points. Manchester City women recorded their highest points tally ever with 55 points during the season.

Captain Steph Houghton completed the scoreline with a marvellous free-kick. It was the perfect start for Manchester City.
But City had a few tough games against Arsenal and West Ham United, which saw them drop a few places on the table. However, Manchester City is not giving up just yet, as they have strung together some great results recently. One of their best matches came against neighbours, Manchester United. It was a crucial victory with United hot on their trails. A single goal from Caroline Weir turned the tie in City’s favour. City dominated most of the match and broke the deadlock in the 81st minute. Caroline Weir scored one of the goals of the season with a sumptuous chip over the Manchester United keeper. It was yet another derby win for City!
QNET applauds Manchester’s City triumph in the FA Continental Cup
Manchester City has added to their list of accolades with the FA Continental Cup to their name. City defeated arch-rivals Chelsea in an impressive performance. Manchester City was coming off a narrow defeat against Chelsea in the Women’s Super League and was looking to reverse the result this time around.
The match began with both sides playing strategically. Chelsea scored the first goal in the 34th minute from a close-range finish. Both the sides went in at half-time with the scoreline at 1-0.
City levelled shortly after resumption in the 49th minute. Georgia Stanway dribbled past the Chelsea defence, squaring the ball to Caroline Weir. The majestic forward took a touch before firing a clinical volley past the goalkeeper. The match was set at 1-1.
Manchester City took the lead in the 58th minute with Ellen White. Lauren Hemp made a darting run through Chelsea’s defence, firing a shot at the keeper. The keeper parried the ball straight to Ellen White, who scored from a close-range. It was advantage City with half an hour of football to go.
City put it well past Chelsea by adding a third goal. Caroline Weir was back on the score sheet with a marvellous first-time volley in the 69th minute. The tie was well settled, and City was resolute at the back to make sure that they didn’t concede any late goals.
Overall, it was one of City’s best performances as they emerged victorious by lifting their first trophy in the last two years.
Crucial Manchester City Women’s Football Team Fixtures
Manchester City is well poised for yet another strong finish in the Women’s Super League. However, a few important fixtures could have a massive impact on their current campaign. A quick run of fixtures towards the end of March sees City host Everton on March 24th. Everton is currently languishing at the lower half of the table. However, they could easily win a match on their day.
The last time the two clubs met, City were comfortable winners with a scoreline of 4-0. City would want to continue in their rich vein of form against Everton and hope they can replicate the same result as the first game of the campaign.
Manchester City has a quick turn-around of fixtures with a home game against Birmingham City. The Birmingham team is rooted at the bottom of the table. City would be expecting themselves to win the fixture comfortably. The last time the two sides met, it was a very tense affair. City edged out Birmingham City with a narrow 3-2 victory. With City looking to close the gap at the top, this game is surely a must-win for them.
Following the game with Birmingham, City visit West Ham United for an intense game. West Ham is right behind City, having played a game extra. The last time the two teams met, West Ham won the match 2 goals to nil. West Ham could prove to be a crucial game in City’s campaign aspirations. City would also be looking to reverse the result of their previous fixture.
Overall, the game is perfectly set up, and City would expect themselves to put their best foot ahead.
