Barrow's Georgia Stanway was among the scorers, although she also missed a penalty, as Manchester City stayed top of the FA Women's Super League after a thrilling 3-3 draw against title rivals Chelsea.

Chelsea came from behind twice to lead at the Academy Stadium through thanks to Beth England's strike after 74 minutes, but they were pegged back quickly by Lauren Hemp's equaliser, which prevented them from replacing the hosts at the division's summit.

As it is, City are still one point clear of Chelsea, but Emma Hayes' side have a game in hand, meaning they have a slight advantage in the title race.

This was City's final match before the SheBelieves Cup, for which Stanway is in England's squad, and it was they who struck first at the midway point of the first half when Ellen White tapped in Janine Beckie's squad.

But it was 1-1 at the break after Maren Mjelde's cross was headed away by City captain Steph Houghton as far as Ji So-yun, whose volley took a slight deflection on its way in.

Stanway then restored the hosts' lead on the hour mark when she was picked by Hemp before slamming her shot in at the near post after she had shaped to shoot for the other side.

However, Chelsea hit back again when City goalkeeper Ellie Roebuck couldn't keep out a header from Magdelena Eriksson.

Former Dowdales School pupil Stanway then had the chance to double her tally from the penalty spot after Caroline Weir was fouled, but Ann-Katrin Berger kept out her effort.

That looked set to be costly when England rattled in a stunning strike from 30 yards to give the visitors the lead for the first time, but Hemp rescued a point by guiding Weir's pass into the bottom corner.
