This is the moment Scotland Women's star Caroline Weir scored a howitzer in this afternoon's Manchester derby.

The midfielder slammed home a thunderbolt from around 25 yards leaving Manchester United goalkeeper Mary Earps with no chance.

City playmaker Weir, 24, wheeled away in delight as her stunner gave her side the lead in the WSL 1 at the City of Manchester Stadium.

Taking a tough from a half-cleared ball by Katie Zelem, Weir pinged a left foot strike into the top corner of the net.

A goal worthy of winning any game, City now have less than 15 minutes to hold onto their lead in a bid to seal three valuable points in their first game of the new season.
