Rodgers rues Liverpool defeat to West Brom

Brendan Rodgers has expressed his disappointment after watching his Liverpool side lose at home to West Bromwich Albion in the Premier League on Monday evening, with the manager particularly regretful over dropping points at home, according to the BBC.

Liverpool were beaten by a Gareth McAuley header and a Romelu Lukaku strike, both goals coming inside the final 10 minutes of the match and shortly after Reds captain Steven Gerrard saw a penalty saved by Albion goalkeeper Ben Foster.


Rodgers had overseen three consecutive home wins prior to the visit of West Brom, matches in which Liverpool had also kept clean sheets, but the Midlands side leapfrogged Liverpool with the victory. Liverpool are now eighth, 12 points adrift of the Champions League places and six points behind Everton, who are sixth.


It's a setback, this is a game we targeted as a possibility of winning but it was not to be,” Rodgers said. “We see our home games as real opportunities, especially in the form we're in.


The manager however declined to criticise his players, adding: “The effort was terrific, I can't ask any more from them. The ball never fell for us, we probably should have got more from the game.


Liverpool’s next outing sees them in European action as they travel to Russia to play Zenit St Petersburg in the Europa League on Thursday, before a home league game with Rodgers’ former employers Swansea City on Sunday.


Any Reds fans that get copies of their matches in the post, may want to sell unwanted DVD on Music Magpie after a result like that.
