Manchester City boss Gareth Taylor believes Khadija 'Bunny' Shaw's frightening form in front of goal is comparable with that of fellow striker Erling Haaland Shaw established herself as City's highest scoring women's player across a single campaign when she bagged her 26th goal of the season against Brighton last weekend.

The Jamaican, who is also top of the Women's Super League's scoring charts, reached that feat in just 22 matches, and her incredible goal return has been instrumental in helping City keep pace with the likes of Chelsea and Manchester United at the top of the table.

Just days after Shaw reached that remarkable milestone, Haaland broke the equivalent record for the men's team during City's 7-0 rout of RB Leipzig in the Champions League.

And Taylor says both of the club's star strikers share plenty of attributes that enable them to play at the top of their game.
