Manchester City will host Bristol City in the FA Women’s Continental League Cup quarter-finals after a 5-0 win at Leicester City.

Ellen White scored an early goal at the near post from a cross by Jess Park, who also delivered balls for Lauren Hemp to head home and setting up Georgia Stanway to make it 3-0.

Hemp netted a second header from a Lucy Bronze cross and was later denied a hat-trick by the crossbar, while the post kept out a Steph Houghton free-kick.

Vicky Losada chipped Sophie Harris from 30 yards to complete the scoring two minutes into the second half.

Harris had made several saves for a young Foxes’ side, while 17-year-old Man City debutant Khiara Keating kept a clean sheet.
