The competition format sees a bonus point available via a penalty shootout when the score is tied at full-time and it was Matt Beard’s LFC Women who took it.

Shania Hayles’ clinical finish handed Villa an almost instantaneous lead at Prenton Park but the Reds were on top for long periods and levelled on 66 minutes through substitute Leanne Kiernan.

Liverpool’s Continental League Cup campaign will continue with a trip to Sheffield United Women on November 3.

The visitors, currently sitting seventh in the Women’s Super League, turned a Liverpool corner kick into an opening goal in the second minute of the Group A tie.

Liverpool needed time to settle into their rhythm but began to overturn Villa’s early momentum at the midway stage of the first half.

There were two changes for LFC Women when the sides returned for the second half, with Leighanne Robe and Yana Daniels introduced for Jasmine Matthews and Taylor Hinds.

But nothing could separate the sides in normal time, meaning a shootout to decide the award of an additional point – and the hosts claimed it courtesy of Foster’s excellent save and converted penalties by Jade Bailey, Holland, Daniels, Robe and Ashley Hodson.
