Brendan Rodgers was disappointed with the draw but pleased his side created more opportunities than in recent games, he also admitted his side had better movement up front after half time.

Rodgers said: “Bit disappointed, bit frustrated that we couldn’t get the three points, in particular after going in front.

“We lost our concentration on a corner which was disappointing, a poor goal from that aspect.

“But in fairness to the players they kept fighting, kept looking to get the winning goal but unfortunately we just couldn’t get it.”

Rodgers’ side created more opportunities, but failed to take them, with Philippe Coutinho and James Milner in particular wasting the best ones in each half.

Half-time saw Christian Benteke removed for Danny Ings, who scored within minutes, and Rodgers said his side had better movement after the change.

“We had a number of opportunities to score more than the one goal. And that was the pleasing aspect. Since the beginning of the season we haven’t created as much, it was more important we got some flow into our game today.

“It was much better in the second half, first half the movement in front of the ball wasn’t as we would wish. Second half was much better, better flow in terms of our intensity going forward.

Rodgers praised Danny Ings – “outstanding” – and Alberto Moreno – “excellent”.

The boss confirmed Benteke had a tight hamstring and will be assessed.
