Jen Beattie’s late winner against Liverpool means City stay one point behind Arsenal while Yeovil completed a double
A 95th-minute winner from Jen Beattie against Liverpool keeps Manchester City’s title hopes alive, even if they are now hanging by a thread. They remain a point behind Arsenal with just two games to play – the last of them against the leaders – but crucially have played a game more than their rivals. So they need the Gunners to falter in one of their next two games – against 10th-placed Everton and ninth-placed Brighton – and then to beat them on the last day of the season. City dominated possession but a hard-working Liverpool team repeatedly thwarted their attacks. The Scotland international Claire Emslie’s deflected shot put City ahead only for Liverpool to equalise from the penalty spot after a handball by the England captain, Steph Houghton, and a nailbiting finish ensued. In the dying seconds Beattie rose highest in the area to nod home Caroline Weir’s free-kick and with the WSL now going on another international break they remain in the hunt for the title for at least four more weeks.
