While Manchester City tucked away their third win over Manchester United this season, they also had more reasons to celebrate their triumph on Saturday, as Khadija 'Bunny' Shaw officially became the Club's all-time top scorer.

As if scoring over your rivals wasn't enough, imagine that goal also being the historical one that made you the top scorer for your Club—quite a feeling that would be, and a sense that Bunny Shaw will be containing.

Shaw joined Man City from Bordeaux in the 20/21 season and has made 82 appearances to date. In that time, she's already created history with the Sky Blues, surpassing previous title holder Georgia Stanway.

Last year, Shaw already broke the record for the most goals scored in a single WSL season by a Man City player, scoring 31 goals during the campaign.

For the 23/24 season, the Jamaican striker has claimed 18 goals so far and will be hoping to get a few more before the WSL comes to an end.

Since signing for the Manchester club, she's won an FA League Cup title and finished second in the FA Cup the same Season.

Her individual honours include Three WSL Player of the Month titles, a PFA WSL Fans Player of the Month, being named Manchester City's Player of the Season of 22/23, being chosen for the PFA Team of the Year 22/23, and won Best Goal of the season for Man City.

As for 23/24, she's already achieved breaking a club record and, before that, was named WSL Player of the Month, but what else awaits remains to be seen.


It is an incredibly respectable milestone for Bunny Shaw, showing her capabilities and talents within this City squad. As previously mentioned, when discussing City's chances of success, we noted Shaw as one of the elements that can contribute to the Club securing a trophy, and seeing her achieve these exceptional statistics goes to show.

With the women's Super League only available to City now, they'll be putting all of their energy into this task, and Bunny Shaw will play a vital piece in completing the puzzle.

Whatever happens this season, if Khadija Shaw remains part of the City squad for however long, she will continue to be a vast difference between themselves and their opponents.

Therefore, with Shaw included within this complete and confident squad that the City is showing to be, the sky is the limit going forward.

And her clinical goalscoring abilities will be required this coming weekend when Man City take on Liverpool in their final fixture of the month.
