Liverpool 0 Arsenal 2 (Janssen 66, Nobbs 87)
Arsenal beat Liverpool 2-0 to move into second position in the Women's Super League, two points behind leaders Chelsea.
There were few chances in the opening stages of the game and it took Arsenal until the 22nd minute for Danielle Carter to fire over the bar following some wonderful build up play involving Jordan Nobbs and Alex Scott.
The hosts could have taken the lead in the 39th minute when Rosie White attempted an audacious lob from 35 yards out, but her effort curled inches over Sari Van Veenendaal's goal.
Scott won Arsenal a penalty just before half time after she was fouled by Satara Murray in the area. Natalia took the resulting spot kick but sent it wide of the goal.
Liverpool started the second half brightly and in the 55th minute Van Veenendaal was required to produce a fine save to keep out Gemma Bonner's volley.
Dominique Janssen put Arsenal ahead when she curled a pinpoint free kick past the outstretched Libby Stout in the 66th minute after Natalia had been fouled by Murray.
Nobbs put the game beyond doubt eight minutes from time when Scott pulled the ball back for the midfielder to apply a driven finish into the bottom corner.
