Nikita Parris maintained her impressive performance for Manchester United by scoring in both halves, leading her team to a 2-0 victory against Brighton in the Women’s Super League. With eight goals in 12 league games this season, there is speculation about a possible call-up to the England squad for Parris, who was not selected for the World Cup.
“Is it difficult to overlook? According to her manager, Marc Skinner, she is currently in a positive state. Her focus and ability to connect plays have improved, with perfect runs. She is in a great place and hopefully, she will be recognized for it by Sarina Wiegman and her team.”
Brighton’s initial match with temporary coach Mikey Harris, who has taken over after Melissa Phillips was fired, did not start well as Parris scored in the ninth minute. However, they were able to keep the opposing team to only one shot on goal in the first half. In the second half, Geyse assisted Parris for the second time in the game.
Chelsea’s leaders secured their eighth straight win in all competitions with a comfortable 3-0 victory over Everton. Guro Reiten scored from a penalty in the 27th minute to give Emma Hayes’ team the lead. She then repeated the feat in the 72nd minute, followed by a goal from Erin Cuthbert in the final minutes. This win maintains Chelsea’s three-point lead over Manchester City and six-point lead over Arsenal, who suffered an unexpected loss to West Ham.
Manchester City secured a 2-0 victory against Leicester thanks to two late goals scored by England players Lauren Hemp and Chloe Kelly within a span of three minutes.
City had been held off by Willie Kirk’s team for over 80 minutes until Hemp took advantage of Khadija Shaw’s cross and Kelly scored a goal directly from a corner, securing them three points. This victory puts them three points ahead of Arsenal, who are currently in third place.
In the final moments of the match, Marie Hobinger scored for Merseyside, equalizing the score after Celin Bizet’s earlier second-half goal for Tottenham. The tie resulted in both teams maintaining their 19-point standings, trailing Manchester United by five points. Liverpool holds a slight advantage in goal difference.
