When England international Ella Toone scored for Manchester United in the third minute, Liverpool looked to be heading for a rough afternoon.

But United's Millie Turner scored an own goal and Taylor Hinds netted for Matt Beard's Liverpool, who lost 6-0 to United less than a year ago but set themselves a goal for this season of breaking into the WSL's top four.

"We know we're a good team. We're a good group and they are all like friends and family," Beard told reporters. "We need to believe in ourselves.

"The non-negotiable is the work ethic and we did that. I know on our day we can compete and I think we've proven that a few times already this season."
