In the Women’s Super League, Manchester United smashed Aston Villa to keep their hopes of finishing in the top three alive. Ella Toone scored the game’s first goal for Marc Skinner’s team, which dominated from start to finish.
With a penalty kick, captain Katie Zelem extended their lead, and Lucy Staniforth added a spectacular third. Martha Thomas added a fourth before Toone added her second of the game to complete the scoring.
United had won their last three games in all competitions, momentarily moving up to third place in the rankings before Tottenham reclaimed it with a 1-0 win against Everton later on Sunday. Villa are on a bad run, since this is their sixth loss in seven league games, and they are now tenth in the table.
The only ray of hope for Villa manager Carla Ward is that her team is currently a significant number of points ahead of bottom-placed Birmingham City and Leicester City, who met on Sunday as well, with the Foxes winning 2-0 at home to lift them off the bottom spot.
Leaders Because of Covid-19 outbreaks, Arsenal’s match against Brighton, Chelsea’s match against West Ham, and Manchester City’s match against Reading have all been postponed.
