In the sec­ond ha­lf we had bet­ter stat­ist­ics in terms of pos­ses­sion, but we were play­ing ag­ainst ten men so that was dis­ap­point­ing. It has be­en the same the last four years when we have come here, so we are pleased wi­th the res­ult, but not wi­th the per­form­ance. I ex­pect bet­ter of them.” Liver­pool Te­am: Pepe Re­ina, Mar­tin Kel­ly, Dan­iel Ag­ger, Mar­tin Skr­tel, Glen John­son, Joe Al­len, Ste­ven Ger­rard, Jonjo Shel­vey, Ra­heem Ster­ling, Fa­bio Borini, Lu­is Suarez.
