Weir 'privileged' to help City edge United to win first Manchester derby in Women’s Super League

Caroline Weir’s 48th-minute strike sealed a historic derby victory for Manchester City in front of a record Women’s Super League crowd of 31,213 at the Etihad Stadium.

Weir’s left-foot shot from outside the box proved enough to take the points but only after Manchester United, who dominated the first half for long periods, came agonisingly close to snatching a draw.

City goalkeeper Ellie Roebuck saved brilliantly to deny Jane Ross before the break, then was fortunate to see a late Jackie Groenen effort rebound back off the base of a post and into her arms.
