Manchester United defeated Arsenal 1-0 on Wednesday, knocking them out of the Continental League Cup.
Forward Tobin Heath made her return from injury, starting on the bench before entering in the 67th minute.
Things were testy in the second half of the quarterfinal match, as Arsenal manager Jonas Eidevall got into it with United striker Martha Thomas. Thomas had challenged Arsenal’s Beth Mead, resulting in a foul for which Thomas received a yellow card. Unhappy with the tackle, Eidevall stepped forward in his dugout and could be seen yelling at Thomas.
Both Eidevall and United manager Marc Skinner were cautioned following the incident.
According to The Athletic, the FA is reportedly satisfied that “relevant action was taken at the time” and as a result they will not take any further action.
A free kick by Alessia Russo broke the deadlock in the 85th minute, putting Manchester United up 1-0. They advance to the semifinals alongside Chelsea, Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur.
