Alessia Russo also scored twice on the day. Heath scored her goal in the 23rd minute for United’s second of the day and Press capped the day with a strike in the 87th minute.
The win has United in third place with 13 points from five matches, two points behind leaders Arsenal, who rode a Vivianne Miedema hat trick to a 6-1 hammering of Tottenham.
Heath and Press each signed one-year deals with United in early September and made their league debuts earlier this month in a 1-0 win over Tottenham.
Winger Heath had spent the past seven seasons with the Portland Thorns. Press, a striker, had been with NWSL side the Utah Royals since 2018. Both were members of the U.S.’s 2019 Women’s World Cup-winning team.
