I was there, and might give you my opinion later. First, though, here’s what the manager thought.
Or, at least, here’s what the manager decided to share with Colin, and maybe one or two others:
Liverpool 2 Sunderland 0
It’s disappointing to lose the game after we’d done so well at keeping Liverpool out for so long.
They’re the Premier League’s in-form team at the moment so we can be pleased with how well we did do against them for 75 minutes.
I’m disappointed with their first goal, I wasn’t sure if it was a cross or a shot, but somehow it managed to find its way into the back of the net.
Liverpool did have a lot of chances but up until that point I thought we coped with them rather well.
We had a great chance just before they scored. Duncan Watmore had an opportunity but he took a little too long. We know when you come to somewhere like Anfield you need to be a lot more clinical and take those sort of chances.
We were hard to beat; we made Liverpool work today. I would have liked to have seen us make more of our chances, but I think the players have done a good job.
It wasn’t for the purist; but it’s not our job to entertain the Anfield crowd. Our job was to come and try and get a result.
I think the Sunderland fans could see how hard the players were trying out there and how much effort they were putting in and they stuck with the game.
We were close, but not close enough.
