Everton score from a cornerEverton's equaliser from a corner was the fourth set-piece goal they have scored out of seven this season

Khadija Shaw scored her eighth goal in seven Women's Super League games as Manchester City beat Everton in a tight encounter at Walton Hall Park.

Shaw picked up a looped ball from Leila Ouahabi as Everton goalkeeper Emily Ramsey came out of her goal to meet Shaw, leaving an empty net for the Jamaican to square the ball to Julie Blakstad who slotted home.

Everton's equaliser came from a corner and a scramble in the box saw Sandy MacIver try to punch the ball away, but it fell straight to Rikke Sevecke who powered a header into the back of the net.

But Shaw tapped in the rebound after Laura Coombes fired an ambitious shot in which smacked off the post to restore City's lead just half-time.

This is City's fifth consecutive victory in the Women's Super League, despite being without injured winger Lauren Hemp, and moves them fourth, level on points with Manchester United.

Meanwhile, the loss was Everton's third consecutive home defeat of the season and leaves them seventh in the WSL.
