MATCH QUOTES

"It has been a brutal start to the season for Paul Lambertโ€™s young side. During their magnificent victory at Arsenal and contentious defeat at Chelsea, they displayed tangible signs of progress but against Liverpool they looked flat and, perhaps, fatigued by those two demanding trips to London."
