Keira Walsh had come closest to drawing Manchester City level before she did blast home the equaliser

Women's Super League leaders Manchester City came back from a goal down at half-time to beat lowly Everton.

The Toffees, who had just one win from 12 league games, took a shock lead when keeper Ellie Roebuck's attempted clearance was blocked and Chantelle Boye-Hlorkah reacted to swivel and net.

But a powerful Keira Walsh strike drew the hosts level after the interval.

And, after Janine Beckie's header made it 2-1, substitute Nikita Parris sealed victory with a 90th-minute shot.

An Everton win seemed possible after an impressive display in the first period which saw the visitors defend resolutely and Inessa Kaagman twice go close to adding to the lead.

But City upped the tempo on the resumption and ended up worthy winners, having dominated possession and created the better chances.
