MATCH QUOTES

โ€œWeโ€™ve lost to a soft penalty because if you watch it properly, Tyroneโ€™s been fouled first. โ€œThe disappointing thing is that the referee hasnโ€™t gone to look at it. โ€œItโ€™s always hard to take when you lose football matches. We knew it was going to be a containing job. โ€œYou have to ride the first 20-25 minutes against sides like this. We finished the game stronger, with more belief and some good opportunities.โ€ โ€œIf an arm goes anywhere near Alisson, itโ€™s a foul. โ€œSo why isnโ€™t a foul given for Danny Ings? They are the questions Iโ€™d like answering, but I canโ€™t answer them right now. โ€œIn hindsight I should have thrown a bit more at it a bit earlier, but you have to be careful Liverpool donโ€™t hit you for two, three or four.โ€ Steven Gerrard.
