Goals from Khadija 'Bunny' Shaw and Hayley Raso were enough to hand City a fourth successive win in all competitions.
But in front of a crowd of over 4,000, Gareth Taylor's side were pushed to our limits against a well-drilled Liverpool side.
Shaw's clinical strike after combining with Lauren Hemp saw City grab the lead just after the 20-minute mark, but Katie Stengal cancelled out our advantage soon after.
The hosts continued to press for a winner, and it arrived when substitute Raso fired into the roof of the net on the rebound after her initial effort had been saved.
The victory moves City up to fourth in the WSL table as our fine form continues following the most recent international break.
