Dalglish Talks On Spurs Defeat, League Cup And Agger

Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish has spoken of his disappointment about the team’s poo performance at White Hart Lane, where Spurs defeat Liverpool by 4-0. He feels the only positive thing during the away fixture was the fans’ support, and has asked his players to repay their supporter’s faith in the next match.

Dalglish, who has been in charge of Liverpool since January, said, “For us the best part of the day was the support we got. The fans supported us fantastically and I think the boys will bear that in mind and look forward to repaying them in some way.

“I think we have exhausted Sunday with what we have said. It didn’t please anybody and the players were really disappointed. We don’t think we played well, even with eleven men we didn’t play well. Maybe that’s the standard we are setting for ourselves but we are not going to settle for anything less.”

The former Liverpool forward and club legend added: “We will look to do the best we possibly can in every game, we won’t always play well but we will always try our best. We didn’t start so well on Sunday, which contributed to our downfall, along with Spurs’ play.”

Liverpool now play Championship side Brighton in the Carling Cup, a game in which victory will take the Anfield outfit into the fourth round of the tournament and add some much needed confidence into the players.

The gaffer said with regards to the tournament: “We are pleased to be in the Carling Cup and our intention is to stay in it for as long as we possibly can. We will have a strong team out tomorrow night and we will treat it in the same manner as we treated the Exeter game.

“If we go there with the same attitude then we will give ourselves the best chance to win. Brighton are doing fantastically well after getting promotion and were sitting on top of the table until they lost to Leicester.

Talking about the difficulty of the League Cup game, given the low morale of his players after consecutive defeats, he said, “It will be a difficult game. We have got to get ourselves right, concentrate on ourselves, do our homework on Brighton and take forward it from there.

“We will approach it properly and professionally. They were totally professional when we played at Exeter and we’ll have to do the same again if we want to get a result.”

Dalglish gave an update on Daniel Agger’s injury: “Daniel has got a fractured rib, so he’s struggling a bit.”

The Denmark skipper was injured during the game against Tottenham. An injury to him will be a blow, as Agger was in his best form so far this season. Uruguayan Sebastian Coates is likely to start alongside Jamie Carragher as a replacement for Agger.
