Live Reporting

  1. Thanks for joining us

    It's seven wins from seven in all competitions for Manchester City, while Birmingham's wait for a first league goal or point of the season goes on.

    We'll see you again tomorrow for more WSL action. Have a good afternoon. Cheers!

  2. 'Where are the goals coming from?'

    FT: Man City 3-0 Birmingham City

    Lindsay Johnson

    Ex-England defender on BBC Radio 5 Live

    Birmingham didn't have an outlet. They had nobody to play up too. Rachel Williams had to go looking for the ball and they never looked threatening.

    Even from the set-pieces it didn't happen from them. They've got to work on it.

    Where are the goals going to come from? That's what's worrying for me.

  3. Coming up tomorrow

    Time is almost up for our WSL coverage today, but we have five games to look forward to tomorrow. Here they are (all kick-off times BST):

    • Liverpool v Bristol City (12:00)
    • Tottenham v Man Utd (12:30)
    • Brighton v West Ham (14:00)
    • Reading v Everton (14:00)
    • Chelsea v Arsenal (15:00)
  4. 'Professional performance'

    FT: Man City 3-0 Birmingham City

    Lindsay Johnson

    Ex-England defender on BBC Radio 5 Live

    It was a really good, professional performance from Manchester City. I still think there were some more goals they should've had. Their quality on the ball and passing was very good.

    Birmingham struggled, particularly during the middle part of that second half.

  5. FULL-TIME

    Man City 3-0 Birmingham City

    Man City v Birmingham City

    Three goals and three points for Manchester City. Their 100% start to the season continues.

  6. Post update

    Man City 3-0 Birmingham City

    There'll be a minimum of three minutes added on at the end of this game, with Man City easing towards the top of the Women's Super League.

  7. SUBSTITUTION

    Man City 3-0 Birmingham City

    Defender Aoife Mannion's game against her old club Birmingham is done. She's been solid as ever. On comes Portugal's Matilde Fidalgo at right-back instead.

  8. CLOSE!

    Man City 3-0 Birmingham City

    This is good play from Man City, working the ball in to the area, and the move almost ends in a fourth goal, but youngster Lauren Hemp - who made her senior England debut earlier this week - slots just wide at the back post from Tessa Wullaert's low cross.

  9. 'A quality finish from Lee'

    Man City 3-0 Birmingham City

    Lindsay Johnson

    Ex-England defender on BBC Radio 5 Live

    Man City v Birmingham City

    She's been a bit wasteful with the ball but that was a quality finish at the far post and the goalkeeper unfortunately didn't have a chance. It came at her with some power and fizz into the bottom corner.

  10. SUBSTITUTION

    Man City 3-0 Birmingham City

    With the hosts now cruising, England's Jill Scott goes off and 17-year-old Jess Park comes on.

  11. GOAL: Man City 3-0 Birmingham City

    Lee Geum-min

    Man City v Birmingham City

    Job done for Man City, as Lauren Hemp shows good feet down the left and her cross picks out substitute Lee Geum-min, in acres of space at the far post, and the South Korea star places home the hosts' third.

  12. SUBSTITUTION

    Man City 2-0 Birmingham City

    Birmingham are bringing Lucy Whipp off the bench, for their second change... Striker Rachel Williams gets a rest.

  13. Post update

    Man City 2-0 Birmingham City

    In case you're just joining me with 15 minutes to go, England midfielder Keira Walsh put the hosts ahead in quiet first half, before Belgium's Tessa Wullaert doubled the lead after the break, turning home Canada forward Janine Beckie's cross.

    Wullaert and Lauren Hemp have both hit the post for the hosts as well, while Birmingham are yet to really test Ellie Roebuck in the hosts' goal.

  14. SUBSTITUTIONS

    Man City 2-0 Birmingham City

    Both sides are making a change.

    The visitors bring on Harriett Scott for Claudia Walker, while South Korea's Lee Geum-min is introduced, replacing Janine Beckie in the hosts' front three.

  15. Post update

    Man City 2-0 Birmingham City

    Birmingham have weathered the Man City storm that we saw just after the break but they're still not creating chances of their own.

  16. Post update

    Man City 2-0 Birmingham City

    From what we've seen of Birmingham with the ball, unfortunately it's been quite hard to see how they'll score a goal today.

    They're yet to have a shot on target this afternoon.

  17. HITS THE WOODWORK

    Man City 2-0 Birmingham City

    Man City v Birmingham

    Here come the hosts again and it's Tessa Wullaert, in to the area... But it comes back off the inside of the post!

  18. GOOD SAVE!

    Man City 2-0 Birmingham City

    Man City look a lot more threatening now and Canada forward Janine Beckie's low strike is stopped by Hannah Hampton.

  19. Post update

    Man City 2-0 Birmingham City

    The offside flag was up actually so I'm not sure if Steph Houghton's effort would have counted anyway, if it had been on target.

  20. CLOSE!

    Man City 2-0 Birmingham City

    Caroline Weir whips in a cross from a left-wing free-kick and Steph Houghton is unmarked in the middle, eight yards out... But it's wide from the England captain!
