Manchester United fought back from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 with rivals Manchester City in the Women’s Super League, a result that keeps Casey Stoney’s side unbeaten and top of the table.

The visitors had appeared on course for bragging rights in the city having led 2-0 at half-time after spectacular goals from Chloe Kelly (8) and Laura Coombs (45+1).

However, the home team hit back in the second period thanks to a sensational effort from Tobin Heath (54), before substitute Kirsty Hanson’s close-range strike earned them a deserved point.

As a result, United move two points clear of Arsenal, who host Chelsea on Sunday, while Gareth Taylor’s team stay fifth in the table, five points behind their city rivals.
