LIVERPOOL squandered a two goal lead against Chelsea in Staines as they registered their first point of the season.
Goals from Kelly Jones and Hannah Keryakoplis capped a sparkling first half hour from the Reds, but the home side were able to draw level in awful conditions in South London.
Liverpool made three changes to the side that lost heavily to Bristol last time out, with Nicky Davies making her first start of the season in goal in place of Aroon Clansey, with Cheryl Foster and Nicki Harding also dropping to the bench, being replaced by Keryakoplis and Lynda Shepherd.
The corresponding fixture produced Liverpool's only WSL victory of last season, and Robbie Johnson's side looked bright from the off this time around.
Katie Brusell and Chloe Jones went close before Vicky Jones’ cross struck Katie Sherwood on the hand. Kelly Jones stepped up to take the penalty and coolly despatched a powerful shot high past Carly Telford.
Liverpool's confidence grew, and a wonderful passing move saw them double their lead six minutes later.
Great link-up play between Brusell and Kelly Jones resulted in the latter feeding Keryakoplis, who slotted home from 15 yards.
Another impressive move saw Ruesha Littlejohn again test Telford, before a swift counter attack saw Chelsea pull one back on 34 minutes through Helen Lander’s lob.
They were level within six minutes of the restart – Hincks was played through, with Evans resorting to a desperate tackle to bring her down. The Reds player was booked and, from the resulting free-kick, Dani Buet curled a fantastic effort into the top corner to equalise.
As the home side went in search of the winner, the best chance fell to Liverpool but Keryakoplis could only shoot into the arms of Telford.
