Holders Man City reach Women’s League Cup semi-finals


England international Lauren Hemp left Bristol City in 2018 to join Manchester City

Holders Manchester City cruised into the semi-finals of the Continental League Cup with victory over Championship side Bristol City.

Gareth Taylor’s team were 5-0 up at half-time following a brace from Hayley Raso, while England winger Lauren Hemp scored either side of the break.

Returning to her former club, Hemp was assisted on both occasions by Khadija Shaw, who also got on the scoresheet.

Summer signing Mary Fowler netted on the stroke of half-time.

Manchester City have won all four matches in the competition this season without conceding a goal.

Bristol City, who sit second in the Women’s Championship, failed to have a shot on target on a chilly evening at Ashton Gate.

The draw for the semi-final takes place on Thursday, 26 January at 16:30 GMT.
