FA Cup exit will inspire Liverpool - Allen


Bookmark and Share

By Stephen Donovan

Tuesday 18 February 2014

Liverpool midfielder Joe Allen has said that his side’s FA Cup exit at the hands of Arsenal on Sunday will only serve as motivation in their attempts to win the Premier League title, the Liverpool Echo has reported.

Goals from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Lukas Podolski ensured that Liverpool went out of the FA cup at the fifth round stage, despite piling on the pressure late on after Steven Gerrard had reduced the arrears from the penalty spot.


The Reds currently lie fourth in the Premier League, with qualification for the Champions League the primary aim, but impressive recent form has lifted them to within just four points of leaders Chelsea, leading some to believe that they could mount a sustained title challenge.


And Allen thinks that Sunday’s result was harsh on his team, but will only serve to inspire them for the final three months of the season. He said: “That’s the positive we take from the tie – the performance.


“We were bitterly disappointed to be knocked out of the cup and I’m sure the fans travelled home very disappointed. But our performance level against a good Arsenal team holds us in good stead for the challenges ahead.


“Our league form was very good before the cup game and we’ve got to get back to that. We’ve got 12 big leagues games to go and there is everything still to play for this season.”
