Liverpool 0 Manchester City 0
Liverpool became the first club to take points off Manchester City this season after holding them to a goalless draw, but the WSL 1 leaders' remarkable run of clean sheets has now been stretched to seven matches.
Liverpool had the first chance of note six minutes in, when Caroline Weir latched onto a ball over the top but shot straight at Karen Bardsley. The hosts enjoyed the better early moments but City responded a minute later and Siobhan Chamberlain had to be at full stretch to tip a 20-yard strike from Nikita Parris round the post.
Liverpool were happy to soak up the City possession but on 34 minutes a shot from Jane Ross was deflected wide, before Toni Duggan blazed over the bar from the resultant corner.
Both sides had a bit more purpose after the break and Jennifer Beattie fired a 25-yard volley wide on 55 minutes for the league leaders. Lucy Bronze then drilled a left foot shot straight at Chamberlain, before the England international forced the Liverpool stopper to tip a fiercer effort over the bar moments later.
The best chance of the match arrived for Liverpool twelve minutes from time, when Rosie White headed a corner from Laura Coombs onto the bar.
