City secure top spot in group
 Women's Football News 30 Aug 2015
Manchester City 2 (Duggan 15, Christiansen 71) Liverpool 0
Manchester City clinched top spot in Group Two of the Continental Tyres Cup with victory in the clash between the two teams who had sported 100% records. 
City's best early chances came from a Steph Houghton header and a speculative effort from midfielder Krystle Johnson. But the hosts' attacking persistence paid off on 15 minutes as Nikita Parris seized upon an error from Satara Murray, and was then fouled by the Liverpool defender to win a penalty. Duggan stepped up to calmly convert from the penalty spot for her ninth goal of the season in all competitions.
Liverpool did enjoy some attacking threat in the first period, with Hannah Dale firing wide before Natasha Dowie was denied by an excellent Lucy Bronze tackle.
The half ended on a muted note following injuries to Bronze and Liverpool's Becky Easton and the second half started with England striker Duggan being forced off with a suspected injury.
But the hosts didn't let it affect them and soon doubled their advantage through Christiansen on 71 minutes. The forward, who scored the only goal as City beat Arsenal in the 2014 WSL Continental Tyres Cup Final, capitalised on a defensive mix-up to seal the victory from close range.
Despite the result, Liverpool also progress to the last eight stage in second place. 
Manchester City: Karen Bardsley, Lucy Bronze (sub Abbie McManus 38mins), Jennifer Beattie, Steph Houghton, Demi Stokes, Keira Walsh, Krystle Johnson, Jill Scott, Isobel Christiansen, Toni Duggan (sub Natasha Flint 52mins), Nikita Parris. Subs not used: Alex Brooks, Emma Lipman, Georgia Broughman, Kathleen Radtke.

Liverpool: Libby Stout, Ingrid Ryland, Gemma Bonner, Satara Murray, Majumi Pacheco, Becky Easton (sub Katrin Omarsdottir 40mins), Line Smorsgard (sub Ashley Hodson 69mins), Hannah Dale (sub Katie Zelem 60mins), Lucy Staniforth, Rosie White, Natasha Dowie. Subs not used: Rachel Darbyshire, Matha Harris, Mollie Green.

Attendance: 1,890
