Man City striker Shaw could miss crucial WSL title run-in

Manchester City striker Bunny Shaw could miss the rest of the Women’s Super League season and their crucial title run-in through injury.

City sit top of the WSL, three points ahead of second-placed Chelsea, who have a game in hand.

However, Shaw, the league’s top scorer with 21 goals in 18 games this season, is likely to miss their final three matches after leaving the Joie Stadium in a protective boot on Sunday.

Take a look at some of Lauren James and Shaw’s best goals from the season so far as the pair battle out for this season’s top goal scorer and the WSL title

Shaw, 27, was forced off at half-time due to an injury to her left foot in Manchester City’s 5-0 victory over West Ham.

City have not confirmed the severity of the injury or whether she has broken a bone in her foot.

Shaw is the club’s all-time leading scorer and has netted three WSL hat-tricks this season.

Mary Fowler or Lauren Hemp could replace Shaw up front for Manchester City, who head to Bristol City on Sunday, live on Sky Sports.
