Manchester United produced a stunning late comeback to end Arsenal's 100% start in the Women's Super League.

In front of more than 40,000 fans at Emirates Stadium, Arsenal trailed to an Ella Toone goal at half-time.

They equalised when Frida Maanum's shot took a deflection off Maya Le Tissier, before Laura Wienrother looked to have earned a 15th straight league win.

But two headers by Millie Turner and Alessia Russo in the final five minutes completed a sensational turnaround.
