Man City manager Gareth Taylor believes that the Women’s Super League title race is far from over after his side played out a 1-1 draw with leaders Arsenal. Khadija Shaw put the Citizens ahead in the first half before Toby Heath scored the equalizer in the second minute of stoppage time. They trail Arsenal by six points with the Gunners having a game in hand.
“It’s disappointing to come away with just a draw because the performance was there. We spoke at half-time about dominating the play more than we had done, we opened up a lot more and had good opportunities but all in all, I thought it was a really solid performance from us,” Man City manager Gareth Taylor said. “Even after Arsenal scored we really went for the win and tried our hardest to get it but it just wasn’t to be. Khiara Keating made some good saves, everything she did she showed real maturity, and considering her age I thought she was excellent.”
“For us, I think it’s about the small details now, a game is won and lost in both boxes. We’re a different team now from what we were at the start of the season. We’ve found our rhythm and tempo and we have a lot of players back, it’s a simple formula really,” he added. “The top of the league is exciting, there are plenty of teams in the mix and it’s full steam ahead for us now, the title race is definitely not over.”
