They took the lead through Georgia Stanway and hit the woodwork twice but Kaela Lee Dickerman equalised against the run of play just before the break.

Aoife Mannion restored City's lead from the penalty spot after 48 minutes and the visitors then took firm control with a well-taken Pauline Bremer double.

Three more goals came in the final seven minutes with Caroline Weir twice on target, either side of a Janine Beckie effort.

Arsenal were also in fine goalscoring touch at the Stadio Artemio Franchi, where they were playing their first European fixture in more than five years.

Vivianne Miedema opened the scoring after 18 minutes and set up Kim Little to double the lead before the break.

Miedema pounced on a poor backpass to claim her second after 51 minutes and Lisa Evans completed the scoring with a powerful volley.
