Manchester City came from behind to defeat back-to-back champions Chelsea 3-1 in the Continental Cup final on Saturday.

A trio of second-half goals lifted Manchester City to victory after a challenging opening 45 minutes.

Sam Kerr got Chelsea on the board in the 34th minute, collecting a loose ball in the box before slotting home the go-ahead goal for the Blues.

Manchester City responded quickly after the break, with Caroline Weir equalizing in the 49th minute with a close-range shot inside the box.

Manchester City took the lead less than 10 minutes later when Ellen White tapped in a deflected shot by Lauren Hemp.

Weir padded Manchester City’s lead with her second goal in the 69th minute, volleying in a loose ball off a corner kick to put her side up 3-1.

The win gives head coach Gareth Taylor his second trophy with Manchester City.
