Manchester City's women defeated Everton away on Thursday 2-0 to advance to the quarterfinals of the Continental Cup. The Blues trophy defense now will head to quarterfinals as City has guaranteed advancement from the group stage with one match remaining.

The Blues goals were scored by Toni Duggan and Georgia Stanway,

Stanway told the official MCFC website:"It's amazing - it's only the second time I've played for City so to get the goal, and even to be playing for this club at 16, is incredible.


"I didn't think I'd even be coming off the bench so early on in my City career - never mind scoring - but it shows that Nick and the rest of the team have faith in me.

"It's important that we carry on winning now, starting with Sunday's game against Liverpool."

With a congested fixture list Manager Nick Cushing was forced to make several changes from the side that had drawn Notts County 2-2 last week. The squad rotation paid off and now the Blues can look forward to the knockout stages of the Continental Cup.
