A positive result against an immediate rival was an enticing proposition for both sides going into Tuesday's match, with City knowing victory would see us leapfrog the league leaders.
However, it was the visitors who drew first blood when Sam Kerr powered home a header inside 25 minutes.
Chloe Kelly equalised just four minutes later with a close-range finish, but Pernille Harder’s confident penalty ensured Emma Hayes’ side went in at the break a goal to the good.
Nonetheless, City rallied after the break and were deservedly level with 15 to play when Lauren Hemp smashed home Millie Bright’s scuffed clearance.
The winger could have grabbed a late winner moments later, but her glancing header was tipped onto the bar by Ann-Katrin Berger, who showed world class reactions to preserve a point for our opponents.
