However, it was one-way traffic after the break.The hosts had complete control and turned the game on its head in a matter of minutes thanks to goals from Millie Turner, Ella Toone and Leah Galton.If they play like that against Chelsea in the FA Cup semi-final after the international break, they have a real chance of making it to Wembley.Full-time: Manchester United 4-1 EvertonFollowing an outstanding second-half turnaround, Manchester United take all three points!90+5 min: Everton have a free kick on the edge of the penalty area. Galli steps up to take but fires her shot into the Manchester United wall and the ball runs behind for a corner. Nothing comes of the set-piece, with the hosts winning a goal kick.90+3 min: Seven minutes of added time have been added on. Just before the goal, Hinata Miyazawa was introduced on her return from injury to replace García.90+1 min: Toone makes a run forward with the ball before passing to Williams, who sends it on to Galton. The midfielder is given plenty of time and space to fire her shot into the bottom-right corner, killing any remaining hopes of a last-gasp Everton comeback.GOAL!

She forces Earps into an excellent save on the line before the ball is eventually cleared.87 min: Toone goes for the hat-trick as the ball falls to her on the edge of the box following an attempted clearance from K.Holmgaard. The midfielder attempts an audacious volley, but it flies well over the crossbar.85 min: Everton look to push forward as Piemonte receives the ball on the right, but as she tries to run she is held back by Turner and the visitors are awarded a free kick.The ball is sent into the box, but United can clear the danger with ease.83 min: Manchester United have a corner.

Instead of looking for a team-mate she goes for goal with the outside of her right boot, but Brosnan can calmly make the save.73 min: Manchester United are next to make two changes as Rachel Williams and Leah Galton replace Parris and Geyse.71 min: Everton make a triple change as Kühl is replaced by Katrine Veje. Vanhaevermaet has made way for Karen Holmgaard and Martina Piemonte has replaced Bennison.69 min: I would love to know what Marc Skinner said to his players at half-time because this is like watching a completely different team! Sharp, direct and playing with a very high intensity.66 min: Naalsund provides the assist for Toone this time, putting the ball across goal for the midfielder to tap it in.After the poor first-half performance from United, this is certainly some way to respond!GOAL!

Given Everton’s goalscoring record in the league this season it is difficult to see how they could get back into this game, especially if the hosts keep up this intensity.61 min: Manchester United pile into the box as a cross is sent in. Geyse receives it on the right before squaring it to Toone in the middle. The England star scuffs her first shot but quickly manages to get another away, slotting the ball into the bottom-right corner.GOAL!

The goalkeeper manages to get across her line to make a fantastic save!54 min: Another big chance for the hosts as a cross is sent into the box. García goes for goal with a header but the ball flies over.
