Jamaica’s Khadija Shaw In No-Nonsense Mood

Khadija Shaw was in a no-nonsense mood scoring a hat-trick as Manchester City came from behind to rout Liverpool 5-1 and maintain their quest for leadership in the league.

Taylor Hinds had given the visitors a 15th-minute lead at the Joie Stadium when she lobbed retreating keeper Khiara Keating, but Gemma Bonner’s own goal saw City restore parity within three minutes and it was then that Jamaica striker Shaw took over.

She fired the home side ahead 13 minutes before the break after being gifted possession by keeper Teagan Micah, and then headed home Chloe Kelly’s cross deep into first-half stoppage time before completing her treble – her third in four WSL games – with a cheeky back-heeled attempt 11 minutes after the restart.

Kelly added the icing to the cake with a 78th-minute penalty after Lauren Hemp had been brought down by Micah to send City back into second place above Arsenal on goal difference and three points behind Chelsea.
