Barrovian Georgia Stanway suffered quarter-final heartache as Manchester City Women were beaten 4-2 by Chelsea in the Continental Cup.

Stanway started the game at the City Football Academy as her side looked to book their place in the next round of the competition.

The visitors took the lead after a cagey first half when Melly Leupolz opened the scoring just before the break following a set piece situation.

But Stanway's team were back on level terms early in the second half when Chloe Kelly slotted home from a tight angle.

Their dreams looked to be coming true when they took the lead for the first time with time running out as Lauren Hemp got on the scoresheet.

The lead was shortlived, however, as Niamh Charles struck in added time to send the clash to extra time.

City would have been hoping to regain the advantage and put the tie to bed in the late stages but it was Chelsea who got their noses in front again through Guro Reiten.

Stanway had a chance to equalise for City when she burst through on goal during the first period of extra time but her effort was saved.

And Sophie Ingle secured progression for the away side when she added a fourth to hand Chelsea a two-goal advantage.
