Man City’s Parris sets WSL goal record

Nikita Parris has become the Women’s Super League’s all-time top scorer at the age of 24

Nikita Parris became the Women’s Super League’s all-time top goalscorer as Manchester City swept aside Liverpool.

Parris scored twice to take her tally to her 37, surpassing former Chelsea forward Eni Aluko’s WSL record of 36.

The 24-year-old dinked over Liverpool keeper Anke Preuss to equal the record before converting a late penalty.

Reds defender Niamh Fahey deflected in Caroline Weir’s shot for the opener, while City captain Steph Houghton also twice hit the woodwork with free-kicks.

Victory kept second-placed City three points behind Arsenal – who beat Birmingham City 3-1 earlier on Sunday – in the WSL, which started in 2011.
