After losses to Manchester City and Birmingham City in the competition, Jonathan Morgan’s side were heavily beaten in Manchester in their latest outing.

Jess Sigsworth made it 1-0 inside the opening minute before Lizzie Arnot doubled her outfit’s advantage on seven minutes.

A first-half hat-trick for Ella Toone and a strike from Kirsty Smith then followed and while Libby Smith pulled one back for Leicester before the interval, Manchester United headed into the break with a 6-1 advantage.

Five more goals arrived in the second half, too, with Toone scoring twice, and Jane Ross, Hayley Ladd and Lauren James also finding the back of the net.
