Leah Galton makes landmark 100th Man Utd appearance

Leah Galton made her milestone 100th Manchester United appearance in the club’s 4-0 win against West Ham at Old Trafford on Women’s Football Weekend.

Galton, who was one of the club’s original recruits when a first-team squad was reformed in 2018, is the fourth United player to get to the century mark after Ella Toone, Katie Zelem and Millie Turner, the latter reaching her 100th appearance in last month’s trip to Tottenham.

Galton has been a hugely important player for United since the early days in the Women’s Championship. She had fallen out of love with football after a brief spell at Bayern Munich but credits former Red Devils boss Casey Stoney for helping her find that love again.

“Casey was the one that got me back into football and got me enjoying it because I wasn’t playing when she called me to come and join the United team,” the 28-year-old explained in an interview with United’s official matchday programme for the West Ham game.

“She had to give me some harsh words to make my mentality shift because I think for a while I wasn’t really connected. But I’ll always thank her for that.”

In the same interview, Galton added that it was initially ‘difficult’ for her when current boss Marc Skinner took over because she was asked to do things ‘different’ to what she was used to before. However, she also credits United manager for now ‘getting the best out of me’.

Galton told 90min earlier this year that is her ambition to play Champions League football with United, stepping out onto the pitch to the sound of the competition anthem.

Man Utd 4-0 West Ham – WSL: Player ratings as Garcia brace inspires Old Trafford win

FROM OLD TRAFFORD – Manchester United secured what was ultimately a comfortable 4-0 win over West Ham in the WSL on Saturday evening, but it took a flurry of second goals to get the job done.

Katie Zelem broke the deadlock from the penalty spot shortly after half-time, before game-changing substitute Lucia Garcia scored twice either side of one from Hayley Ladd.

United made a dominant start and on a few occasions worked the ball into good areas on the flanks and in the wide channels. The best of those openings saw Ona Batlle cross to Alessia Russo, whose side-footed volley missed the target from front and centre.

Russo looked to be through moments later after a clever flick from Nikita Parris, but Hammers defender Grace Fisk got a vital toe to the ball and shut down the chance.

The atmosphere was much flatter than might have been expected for an occasion such as this, but the crowd united in their disapproval of referee Emily Heaslip’s decision not to award a penalty when Ladd went down from a Hawa Cissoko nudge. In the immediate aftermath, the same United player crossed from the right, but Leah Galton headed straight at Mackenzie Arnold.

Another penalty appeal came and went in the closing stages of the first half when it was Galton who went down chasing a long ball. Again, cries from the crowd, again Heaslip was un-moved.

Despite some opportunities, United hadn’t done enough to properly test Arnold by the break, while West Ham’s only real sight of goal by then came in an earlier scramble with a cross into the six-yard box – the only outcome was Mary Earps needing lengthy treatment for a foot injury.

But United came out with a little more vigour after the restart. Russo fired just over with a bullet header, while Galton couldn’t stretch far enough to connect with a cross from the right. But it ended up being Zelem from the spot that broke the deadlock during that spell, sending Arnold the wrong way after Russo’s legs had been taken by the sliding Cissoko.

The second goal shortly after the hour was the result of a higher tempo and more intensity in the press. Hammers full-back Risa Shimizu was caught on the ball and before the visitors knew it, the ball was in the net, with Ella Toone spotting the run of Garcia in behind Cissoko and the substitute calmly finishing beyond the reach of Arnold – there was no hint of offside.

Having not been at their best earlier on, United were cruising by the late stages. West Ham’s resistance was broken and the third from Ladd didn’t come as a surprise. With gaps opening up, Batlle got forward with purpose and laid the ball back to the Welsh midfielder, whose left footed finish nestled in the bottom corner.

Earps had to make a couple of late saves to preserve her clean sheet. Instead of seeing the lead cut to 3-1, United then made it four when the lethal Garcia was in the right place at the right time to tap in the rebound from Martha Thomas’ initial shot.

GK: Mary Earps – 6/10 – Shook off an early knock. Mostly a spectator until a couple of late saves preserved the clean sheet.

RB: Ona Batlle – 8/10 – Always looked threatening when she burst forward right until the end when she laid on the third goal.

CB: Maya Le Tissier – 7/10 – Distributed the ball so well as she has become known for.

CB: Millie Turner – 7/10 – Cleared the ball from potentially dangerous positions several times to ensure it never actually became a threat.

LB: Hannah Blundell – 8/10 – Played with so much energy up and down the left.

CM: Hayley Ladd – 8/10 – Consistent as always on both sides of the ball and added a late goal for good measure.

CM: Katie Zelem (c) – 8/10 – Sat deep in open to try and create, but also stopped West Ham playing. Cool and composed from the spot to break the deadlock at a crucial time.

AM: Ella Toone – 7/10 – Pulled into wide channels to connect with United’s wingers and try to pull West Ham out of their shape. Killer pass created the second goal.

RW: Nikita Parris – 6/10 – Looked an early threat in the first half, including a very good flick to make a half chance for Russo. Withdrawn not long into the second.

ST: Alessia Russo – 7/10 – A mixture of trying to bulldoze her way through and some neat interplay.

LW: Leah Galton – 7/10 – Made her 100th United appearance looking for another ‘big stadium’ goal. Didn’t get on the scoresheet but made the second goal by winning the ball high up the pitch.


SUB: Lucia Garcia (55′ for Parris) – 8/10 – Made all the difference off the bench.

SUB: Martha Thomas (66′ for Leah Galton) – 7/10

SUB: Rachel Williams (80′ for Russo) – 6/10

SUB: Aoife Mannion (81′ for Turner) – 6/10


Marc Skinner – 7/10 – His team played with more tempo after the break. Also started to ring the changes after going 1-0 up to keep things fresh at the top end of the pitch.

GK: Mackenzie Arnold – 6/10 – Made a few basic saves but stood little chance with the goals.

RB: Risa Shimzu – 5/10 – Guilty of losing the ball to present United with their vital second goal.

CB: Grace Fisk – 5/10 – Sat a little too deep for the second goal and ended up playing Garcia onside when Cissoko had pushed up.

CB: Hawa Cissoko – 6/10 – Had a really solid first half with a number of big tackles and interventions. But was done by a Russo cutback moments after the restart to give away a penalty.

LB: Kirsty Smith – 5/10 – A tough day against her former club.

CM: Dagny Brynjarsdottir (c) – 4/10 – Identified as a threat beforehand and really didn’t have that impact until it was way too late.

CM: Lucy Parker – 5/10 – Struggled to lay a glove on United, even in the first half.

RM: Emma Snerle – 4/10 – Got no spare change out of Blundell.

AM: Honoka Hayashi – 5/10 – Looked promising when she got hold of the ball, but it happened so little that it didn’t really matter in the end.

LM: Viviane Asseyi – 5/10 – Not involved enough to make a difference, either when on the left or later when she moved into the ‘number nine’ role.

ST: Amalie Thestrup – 5/10 – An evening of hard graft with minimal service.


SUB: Lisa Evans (64′ for Thestrup) – 5/10

SUB: Izzy Atkinson (69′ for Snerle) – 5/10

SUB: Shannon Cooke (79′ for Cissoko) – 5/10

SUB: Kate Longhurst (79′ for Hayashi) – 5/10

SUB: Anouk Denton (79′ for Smith) – 5/10


Paul Konchesky – 6/10 – His side defended pretty well for 45 minutes but will rue giving away a penalty and then slack defending for the second goal.

Barcelona 1-0 Real Madrid – Liga F: Player ratings as Rolfo penalty wins tight Clasico

Fridolina Rolfo’s second-half penalty decided a tight Liga F Clasico for Barcelona against Real Madrid on Saturday evening, earning a 1-0 win which sent the Catalan hosts 13 points clear at the top of the table.

Madrid started boldly, resisting the natural urge to hunker down against the revered might of their rivals and instead tried to put Barcelona under pressure. Although, that’s not to say that the Catalans didn’t stroke the ball around the Estadi Johan Cruyff turf, picking out angles which would have tickled the Dutchman nicknamed Pythagoras in boots.

Alberto Toril’s visitors limited the runaway league leaders to just a single shot on target in a diligent and disciplined first half which saw Real offer just as much attacking threat – even if neither goalkeeper was overworked.

With the second leg of a Champions League last-16 tie to come against Roma on Wednesday, Jonatan Giraldez made four changes to the Barcelona side that could only earn a 1-0 win in the Italian capital last midweek. After a frustrating opening hour devoid of any discernible chances, the 31-year-old coach turned to his bench.

Caroline Graham Hansen was one of the additions and swiftly found herself on the end of the clearest opening of the match. Sneaking in at the back post from the second phase of a corner, Graham Hansen had ample space to meet the cross but nodded a limp effort into Misa Rodriguez’s gloves.

The Norwegian winger proved more potent as the provider. Moments after teeing up Patri Guijarro for a similarly weak header, Graham Hansen was on the end of a quickly taken free kick, tossing the ball into the middle of a chaotic penalty area. Amid the maelstrom, Athenea del Castillo – one of Real’s substitutes – hooked her right arm and leg around Salma Paralluelo, who gratefully accepted the invitation to tumble to the turf, earning a penalty which left Toril wagging his finger in disbelief and disgust.

Rolfo nervelessly slotted her spot kick into the bottom corner with just 13 minutes left on the clock. As Madrid desperately tossed bodies forward in search of an equaliser they may not have needed with a different referee, Rolfo had space on the counter to add a second which wasn’t forthcoming.

Real Madrid may have lost their 11th consecutive Clasico – every edition of this fresh rivalry – but they can take confidence from becoming the first team to limit Barcelona to just one goal in a Liga F game this season. Although, with the sting of defeat and injustice still raw, that will offer little consolation.

Caroline Weir, Lucy Bronze

GK: Sandra Panos – 7/10 – Always alert when forced into defensive intervention even after large swathes of inaction.

RB: Lucy Bronze – 6/10 – Tentatively grew into the game, offering an overload down the right which Ana Maria Crnogorcevic very much needed.

CB: Marta Torrejon – 5/10 – By her lofty standards, Torrejon was uncharacteristically slack when building up from the back.

CB: Mapi Leon – 7/10 – Capable of slicing Madrid open with a scalpel of a left foot.

LB: Fridolina Rolfo – 6/10 – Despite her natural attacking instincts, Rolfo made sure to track back (begrudgingly) when Madrid mounted a sporadic attack.

CM: Aitana Bonmati – 7/10 – Popping up all over the pitch, invariably in a square of green grass unblemished by a white shirt.

CM: Ingrid Syrstad Engen – 7/10 – Sweeping up at the base of midfield, one of the few fixed points around which the buzzing Blaugrana shirts pivoted.

CM: Patri Guijarro – 6/10 – Unerringly comfortable in possession even in the tightest of spaces.

RW: Ana Maria Crnogorcevic – 3/10 – Lacked the craft and guile to trick her way down the right.

ST: Geyse – 4/10 – Sloppy with the timing of her runs and her tackling – little details that stood out in the absence of any clear chances.

LW: Salma Paralluelo – 6/10 – Increasingly drifted infield to limit her isolation and open a channel out wide for Rolfo to canter into. In the right place to tempt Del Castillo into a rash challenge.


Caroline Graham Hansen (60′ for Crnogorcevic) – 8/10 – Injected an urgency and elegance into Barcelona’s frontline which changed the game.

Asisat Oshoala (60′ for Geyse) – 5/10

Keira Walsh (60′ for Engen) – 5/10

Irene Paredes (67′ for Torrejon) – 5/10

Vicky Lopez (83′ for Paralluelo) – N/A


Jonatan Giraldez – 6/10 – Ultimately his changes made the difference but will be worried about the lack of chances Barcelona created for an hour.

Ivana Andres

GK: Misa Rodriguez – 7/10 – Not exactly adhesive with her handling but got her gloves in the way of plenty of shots and crosses.

RB: Kenti Robles – 5/10 – More concerned with taking the ball off the toes of Paralluelo rather than picking out a teammate once she had won possession.

CB: Ivana Andres – 6/10 – The captain delivered an uncompromising display, heaving the ball clear when left with few other options.

CB: Kathellen Sousa – 7/10 – Exploited her supreme swiftness across the turf to track as many red and blue blurs as she could.

LB: Sofie Svava – 7/10 – Proved to be a stubborn obstacle which Crnogorcevic struggled to hurdle.

CM: Sandie Toletti – 7/10 – Safe rather than spectacular with her passing but gobbled up a raft of loose balls in midfield.

CM: Claudia Zornoza – 5/10 – Unnecessarily overeager with her work off the ball at times.

AM: Caroline Weir – 6/10 – Hassled the Barcelona backline diligently but saw precious little of the ball.

RW: Maite Oroz – 5/10 – A veteran of all 11 Clasicos, Oroz skirted around the fringes of the contest.

ST: Esther Gonzalez – 6/10 – There is no lost cause for the infectious scraper.

LW: Linda Caicedo – 5/10 – The Colombian prodigy flickered in and out of the game.


Naomie Feller (60′ for Esther) – 5/10

Athenea del Castillo (70′ for ) – 3/10 – Provided precisely the opposite impact Toril was looking for.

Olga Carmona (70′ for Caicedo) – 5/10

Freja Olofsson (86′ for Zornoza) – N/A


Alberto Toril – 5/10 – Set his side up in an admirably obdurate shape that defended beyond their penalty area. Unfortunate to be undone by a soft spot kick.

Tottenham 1-5 Arsenal – WSL: Player ratings as Gunners claim huge win in north London derby

Arsenal moved level on points with Manchester United and Manchester City in the WSL table following a win at Tottenham in the north London derby.

The Gunners were the first of the title contenders to play on Women’s Football Weekend and stuck to the script with victory at Brisbane Road.

Spurs remain in a relegation battle and sit just five points above 12th-placed Leicester.

The hosts spurned a great chance to take a shock early lead. Kerys Harrop managed to release Rosella Ayane down the left flank and had Bethany England to pick out in the box, but her low cross was too close to goalkeeper Sabrina D’Angelo and the opportunity went begging.

And Tottenham were made to pay as Arsenal opened the scoring after just five minutes. Leah Williamson’s long ball forward was missed by both teammate Victoria Pelova and Spurs’ Molly Bartrip, allowing Stina Blackstenius to run in behind and fire in at Tinja-Riikka Korpela’s near post.

Spurs didn’t let that faze them, however. Celine Bizet managed to carry the ball up the right channel and picked out England, whose cutback was directed narrowly wide by Drew Spence.

Back at the other end, Caitlin Foord managed to wriggle away from Angharad James and Ash Neville, with a back-post cross just beyond the reach of Pelova. Blackstenius was then denied a sure second by a last-ditch challenge from Amy Turner at the end of a flowing Arsenal move.

The visitors added their second just before the half-hour mark. Pelova managed to switch play for Foord, who cut in from the left and rolled the ball into the bottom corner from 20 yards.

A third nearly followed when Frida Maanum found herself free in midfield and drove at the Spurs defence, playing it through for Pelova to strike, but Korpela managed to get a toe on her effort and Tottenham were let off the hook.

Arsenal conceded a penalty just before the break. Katie McCabe handled the ball when trying to block a shot from Neville, and England made no mistake from 12 yards.

At the start of the second half, a dangerous cross from Maanum looked destined to be tapped in by Foord at the back post, only for Neville to retreat and put her off, with the ball trickling behind for a goal kick.

Arsenal maintained their dominance as they went in search of a third goal. Kim Little was up next to test Korpela, forcing the Finland international into a low save.

McCabe may have given away a penalty at one end, but she won one at the other after being tripped by Turner. Little stepped up to restore Arsenal’s two-goal advantage.

The Gunners’ fourth soon followed when a teasing cross from Pelova evaded Neville and was turned in at the back post by Foord.

Maanum got in on the act with Arsenal’s fifth in the final 15 minutes, managing to beat Korpela from 25 yards via a deflection from Bartrip.

Substitute Gio Queiroz came close to notching a sixth, clipping the top of the crossbar with a volley soon after her introduction.

The Brazilian had to be brought back off in the final minutes due to a hip injury and Arsenal sealed the victory with 10 players on the pitch.

GK: Tinja-Riikka Korpela – 5/10 – Simultaneously kept the score down and should have done better with the first goal.

RB: Ash Neville – 4/10 – Always in battles with Foord. Felt like her talents were wasted in such a defensive position, perhaps best emphasised by winning the penalty.

CB: Amy Turner – 4/10 – Made some crucial tackles and interceptions as Arsenal penned Spurs in, though eventually conceded a penalty.

CB: Molly Bartrip – 4/10 – Outpaced and outmuscled by an in-form striker in Blackstenius.

LB: Kerys Harrop – 4/10 – Didn’t provide a lot at either end.

CM: Angharad James – 4/10 – Often the player to provide a screen for the back four, though was often harassed out of possession by Arsenal’s pressing.

CM: Drew Spence – 6/10 – Looked lively when bombing forward and linking up with Neville and Bizet.

CM: Eveliina Summanen – 4/10 – Found it hard to stand out in the midfield battle.

RW: Celine Bizet – 6/10 – One of Tottenham’s most dangerous players, always looking to progress the ball and create a moment of magic.

CF: Bethany England – 7/10 – A busy body who made life difficult for Arsenal’s defenders when Spurs were in possession. Now ahead of Ellen White in the WSL’s all-time scoring charts.

LW: Rosella Ayane – 4/10 – Worked ever so hard but didn’t have the requisite quality in the final third.


Kit Graham (67′ for Summanen) – 5/10

Chioma Ubogagu (79′ for Bizet) – N/A

Cho So-hyun (88′ for Spence) – N/A


Vicky Jepson – 4/10 – Tottenham were so poor in the second half after managing to hang around with Arsenal in the first.

GK: Sabrina D’Angelo – 5/10 – Didn’t have a lot to do for the most part on her WSL debut. Had no chance of saving England’s penalty.

RB: Noelle Maritz – 6/10 – Matched Ayane’s energy and that was enough to nullify her.

CB: Leah Williamson – 7/10 – Her confidence in possession helped Arsenal play their natural game, though England was always on her case. Moved into midfield late on.

CB: Lotte Wubben-Moy – 7/10 – Largely untroubled alongside the England captain.

LB: Katie McCabe – 5/10 – Put to work by Bizet and gave away a needless penalty with a clear handball.

CM: Lia Walti – 7/10 – Dropped between the centre-backs to progress the ball and did so excellently.

CM: Kim Little – 7/10 – Technically excellent as Arsenal controlled the game.

CM: Frida Maanum – 8/10 – Threatening and energetic when in possession.

RW: Victoria Pelova – 9/10 – Turned Spurs defenders inside and out all afternoon.

CF: Stina Blackstenius – 8/10 – Outstanding. Another confident performance leading the line for Arsenal.

LW: Caitlin Foord – 9/10 – Consistently sought to trouble Tottenham with her pace and trickery. There’s only a finite number of ways to say Arsenal were far superior to their hosts.


Rafaelle (67′ for Waltl) – 6/10

Laura Wienroither (67′ for Maritz) – 6/10

Gio Queiroz (78′ for Foord) – N/A

Kathrine Kuhl (83′ for Blackstenius) – N/A

Jodie Taylor (83′ for Maanum) – N/A


Jonas Eidevall – 8/10 – Arsenal were confident and composed, head and shoulders above their rivals.
