See how the Reds beat Arsenal to secure a place in the semi-finals of the Continental Cup...

The Reds eliminated Women's Super League leaders Arsenal in last Wednesday's quarter-final, with Alessia Russo scoring the only goal of the game at Meadow Park in the 85th minute.

That was the fifth victory in an ongoing run of six for Marc Skinner's side in all competitions, a sequence which has also seen us rise to second in the top-flight table.

The Reds can make it seven wins in a row before facing Emma Hayes's outfit, as we face Bridgwater United in the FA Women's Cup this Sunday.

The other Conti Cup semi-final sees our group-stage rivals Manchester City host Tottenham on Thursday 3 February.

United are aiming for a first-ever major final, having previously reached the semi-final of this competition in 2019 and 2020.
