Leah Galton and Tobin Heath both scored twice to help Manchester United to a thumping 6-1 win over Bristol City to stay top of the Women’s Super League and maintain their unbeaten start.

Galton scored a stunning opener, collecting a pass from Katie Zelem, turning a defender and unleashing a spectacular shot into the top corner.

In first-half added time, a corner from Zelem picked out Millie Turner and she headed home.

Jess Sigsworth continued United’s scoring in the second half as she converted from close range in the 52nd minute to make it 3-0.

Galton scored her second goal of the game with a run down the left and superb strike into the right-hand corner which gave City keeper Sophie Baggaley no chance.

City got one back in the 73rd minute when Ebony Salmon scored a rebound, slotting the ball home from outside of the area with United keeper Mary Earps out of position.

Heath made it 5-1, lobbing the keeper with a first-time shot from 25 yards, and then scored her second as she showed great feet to beat a defender and then slot home to complete the rout.
