Rodgers post match reaction: LFC 1-1 Everton

Brendan Rodgers felt that Liverpool deserved move from the weekend's fixture against Everton.

Speaking to TV after the game he said:

"We were very clearly the better side.

"Everton had virtually nothing in attack. To concede a goal like that so late on is obviously frustrating.

The Liverpool boss also believed that the reds should have doubled their lead - a Mario Balotelli strike getting the faintest of touches by Howard to deny the reds their second goal.

"We could have been at least 2-0 up by the time Everton scored.

"Mario Balotelli should have scored after a great run and cross by Raheem Sterling and we definitely should have had a penalty in the first half.

"The ball was shot into the box by Sterling and Barry grabbed it with both hands. That was nearly a save.

"I never felt in any danger in the game. For 91 minutes of the game we were excellent, so I am not going to let the result disappoint me.

"It is the performance I am looking at, which was was at a much better level than where we have been."

Meanwhile Mamadou Sakho offered an apology to the club.  He was pictured leaving the ground before the game after not being included in the 18 man squad.
