A dominant Everton were forced to settle for a point on Sunday as the travelling side were held to a goalless draw against Leicester City.
The visitors controlled the game in possession at the King Power Stadium but were unable to find the cutting edge required to secure the three points.
Everton came into the match looking to make amends for last weekend's defeat to Aston Villa and appeared confident in their play.
Brian Sorensen made three changes to the side with Elise Stenevik, Hanna Bennison and Nico Sorensen returning to face the Foxes.
Swede Bennison and Dane Sorensen looked the most threatening for the Toffees in the opening 45 minutes. With the pair comfortably leading Everton into attacking moves.
A returning Katrine Veje also looked to breathe life into the Toffees performance, showcasing her experience with a defensively sound showcase alongside a spark in attack throughout her second half display.
Arguably the Blues best opportunity of the match came on the hour mark when the ball fell to Katja Snoeijs in the area with her effort pushed beyond the post by Janina Leitzig.
Frustrations continued to grow for Everton as the stalemate continued, but the match well and truly burst into life in the final stages.
Golden opportunities fell for Aggie Beever-Jones, Izzy Christiansen and Karen Holmgaard, but their best efforts were either blocked or fell wide.
The Toffees now have now have 12 days to prepare for their Merseyside derby clash when they against Liverpool at Goodison Park. The two sides set to face-off on Friday 24 March (7.30pm GMT).
