Caroline Weir of Manchester City scores against Aston Villa
Caroline Weir’s opener was her second Women’s Super League goal of the season

Manchester City relieved some of the pressure on boss Gareth Taylor with an emphatic win over Aston Villa in the Women’s Super League.

City, who had won one of their past six league games, were frustrated in the first half but Caroline Weir curled home three minutes after the break.

Georgia Stanway hooked in three minutes later, before two goals by substitute Hayley Raso and another from Lauren Hemp sealed a big win.

The win lifts City to sixth.

Villa, who made one change and altered their formation to five at the back in an attempt to frustrate City, drop one place to seventh.
