Liverpool ‘too honest’, says Allen

Wednesday 27 August 2014

Liverpool midfielder Joe Allen has said that he believes his side are ‘too honest’ compared to the likes of Manchester City, to whom they lost 3-1 on Monday, the Guardian has reported.

Two goals from Stevan Jovetic and another from substitute Sergio Aguero gave the defending Premier League champions an eventually comfortable victory despite a late Pablo Zabaleta own goal. Liverpool probed throughout, but often struggled to penetrate the home defence.


On some occasions, Man City deliberately prevented counter-attacks by fouling their opponents, and Allen believes his side may have to adopt similar tactics in order to be more successfull. He said: “We can be too honest and too fair at times.”


“It can be seen as a good thing but at this level you need to be clever at times. At times we can maybe stop things at source and save ourselves a lot of trouble. It’s small margins at this level. It’s not just negatives to take away from the game but unfortunately we conceded three goals. They punished lapses in concentration.’


The Reds expect to find out on Wednesday how serious the three injuries they picked up at the Etihad Stadium are. Glen Johnson, Alberto Moreno and Martin Skrtel were all struck down late on, with the England man having to go off. Moreno, the recent signing from Sevilla, is likely to miss Sunday’s trip to Tottenham.
