Manchester City 6-0 Birmingham City: Birmingham relegated as City move to third

Georgia Stanway scores for City
Only Chelsea have won more WSL points (32) than Manchester City (28) in 2022, while Birmingham have picked up the fewest points (seven)

Birmingham City were relegated from the Women’s Super League after a crushing defeat by Manchester City, who moved back up to third place.

Georgia Stanway fired the hosts ahead before Lauren Hemp bundled in three minutes later.

Stanway latched on to a loose ball for City’s third before Alanna Kennedy, Chloe Kelly and Laura Coombs capped off a miserable night for Birmingham.

The loss brings the Blues’ 11-year stint in the WSL to an end.
