Tough loss at home.

It was a rainy Thursday evening at Southport’s Merseyrail Community Stadium but manager Andy Spence still wore his signature shorts with a jacket and the faithful supporters stayed and sang their chants the entire match.

Last year, Everton Ladies put up some respectable results against Man City at home, but not this time around.

Things were going well until Georgia Stanway’s long range goal in the first half but Everton had their chances, notably when Claudia Walker hit the post.

Here’s goal #1 for Man City:

While the first half looked promising from Everton, with some nice counter attacks from Walker and Chloe Kelly, the second half was not as positive. Man City dominated and tired the Toffees out, with Nikkita Parris quickly netting two goals and then a fourth from Claire Emslie in the 70th minute.

Everton are 0-2 so far in league games and have one loss and one win in the Continental Cup.
