Cloe Lacasse celebrates with Arsenal team-matesCloe Lacasse scored 22 goals for Benfica last season but is now starring for Arsenal

Cloe Lacasse hit a stunning stoppage-time goal to earn Arsenal a draw at Manchester United in the Women's Super League.

United thought they had won it when Melvine Malard scored on her debut in the 81st minute, but there was a late twist as Lacasse lashed home to give Arsenal a first point of the season.

Arsenal had gone ahead early on at Leigh Sports Village when Stina Blackstenius showed power and pace to get away from Hannah Blundell before coolly slotting into the far corner.

That advantage lasted a mere 13 minutes, with United gifted a route back into the clash by goalkeeper Sabrina D'Angelo. The Canadian mistimed a clearance and allowed Leah Galton the chance to roll the ball into an open goal.
