Liverpool must learn lessons of QPR defeat, warns Dalglish

Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish has said his side must learn from their defeat by Queens Park Rangers on Wednesday despite reiterating his belief that the Reds were hard done by, the Independent has reported.

Goals from Sebastian Coates and Dirk Kuyt had put Liverpool into a two-goal lead but with 13 minutes to play a Shaun Derry header pulled a goal back for Mark Hughes’ side. Then in quick succession goals from former Liverpool striker Djibril Cisse and substitute Jamie Mackie turned the match on its head and gave Rangers three points.

Dalglish is reported as saying: "We need to find the answers and make sure that we go on and we learn from it. We were so constructive for so many parts of the game...I don’t think anyone in their right mind would say we deserved that."

The result left Liverpool in seventh place, five points behind Newcastle United in sixth and 12 points adrift of Tottenham Hotspur, who hold the final Champions League qualification spot.

Liverpool are already guaranteed participation in next season’s Europa League by virtue of their victory over Cardiff City in the League Cup, while the possibility of a cup double remains as the Anfield side are through to the FA Cup semi-finals, where they will face either Sunderland or Merseyside rivals Everton at Wembley.
