Manchester United Women are in action on Thursday evening as they take on Durham in the FA WSL Cup. Marc Skinner’s side have started the campaign in good form, as they currently sit fourth in the table.
Ivana Fuso’s first-half strike gave Manchester United the lead before half-time but the home side retaliated after the interval, grabbing an equaliser just five minutes after the restart.
Manchester United’s main woman this season, Ella Toone, continued her breathtaking form and scored a brilliant strike from outside the box to retake the lead in the 73rd minute, as seen below.

Toone has now scored three goals and assisted a further four this season, making an impressive start to the new campaign under Skinner.
Durham found an equaliser just minutes later but Manchester United were victorious in the penalty shootout, winning 5-3 on penalties.
