Liverpool FC Women assistant manager Amber Whiteley explained the collective sense of mixed emotions following Sunday's 3-3 draw with Aston Villa.

The Reds came back from 1-0 down to lead 3-2 in the Barclays Women's Super League clash at Villa Park, but a Villa equaliser denied the visitors their first away victory of 2022-23.

Katie Stengel netted twice and Natasha Dowie was also on the scoresheet for Matt Beard's side in their penultimate match of the season.

"It was a great game for the neutral, a great occasion playing at Villa Park but we come away a little bit disappointed not to have won it," said Whiteley.

"We scored three great goals but we are definitely disappointed with the ones we've conceded and we are going to have to look back at those and put that right for our next game.

"We were really pleased with parts of our performance, but we felt we could have come away with all three points."

Stengel, meanwhile, was pleased to be back among the goals as a double took her tally to 10 for the campaign.

"It was a very open game, very chaotic but you could tell by the amount of goals that were scored it was wild," said the No.24. "I was really happy to finally score, I had great service and it was nice to get the goals.

"I'm enjoying playing alongside Natasha Dowie. We played together years ago and now it's come full circle. She has done really well since coming in so it's been nice to link up.

"It was great to play at Villa Park and the atmosphere was amazing."
