City were aiming for a fourth successive victory in all competitions, having grabbed 13 goals in our last three outings against Leicester, Tottenham and Blackburn.
Standing in our way was a Liverpool side looking to return to winning ways in the WSL having lost each of their last three matches.
However, Matt Beard's side had already proven they were capable of causing an upset, having beaten reigning champions Chelsea on the opening day of the season.
The visitors came to the Academy Stadium on the back of a 4-0 win over Leicester in the Continental Cup.
Everything pointed towards an exciting encounter, which you can watch in full on CITY+.
