Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers claimed his side were “excellent” against Sunderland as his side drew 0-0 at Anfield on Saturday – making it one goal scored in home games against Hull City, Stoke and Sunderland in recent weeks.

“[The] players done everything, just couldn’t quite get the goal today. In particular the second half we were excellent,” said Rodgers.

The boss highlighted a second clean sheet in a week and seven points from nine in the three games this week.

“I can’t fault the players today, they gave everything,” he praised.

Speaking at his post-match press conference, he said “I have to give credit to the players,” although admitting the first half was a slow intensity. “I thought the second half the pressed the game much better,” said Rodgers – whose side didn’t manage a shot on target until the 63rd minute.

Rodgers’ subs bench didn’t feature a forward, despite Rickie Lambert playing his fifth game inside 14 days and Fabio Borini being available. Quizzed on this, Rodgers said it was a decision he makes as manager.

Only Aston Villa and Burnley have scored fewer home Premier League goals this season than Liverpool’s seven in eight games.
