Brendan Rodgers disappointed with Hull 3-1 Liverpool

The Tigers deserved all three points as the reds conceded three times in the second successive Premier League game for the first time in 15 years.

The Liverpool manager spoke to the media after the game and said:

"We're bitterly disappointed with the result.  We made too many mistakes today with and without the ball to win the game.

"We won't anywhere near our best today.  We had enough the ball but probably gave it away too cheaply.

"We've struggled a bit defensively this year.  We've had to make lots of changes.  A lot of teams are able to stabilise their back fours but we've had a number of injuries, except for Mignolet who has been outstanding.  I don't think that's helped us.

"I think overall we just didn't play well enough.

"Now we've got to really show our character - we've got two home games that we must exploit.

(When asked if Liverpool should be getting a result in this type of game to finish in the top four)

"Yes I agree.  But we've got two home games now.  If we can get two victories then that will keep us on course for two points a game which will take us to where we want to go.

"In the bigger picture we need to get over it and get ready for Wednesday.
