United raced into a 3-0 lead inside eight minutes but Caley fought back to edge 4-3 ahead before Jon Daly's last-minute penalty secured the hosts a point.

Houston said: "It feels more like a defeat if I'm being honest. When you go 3-0 up so early on in any game and score goals at home you really do expect to win the match.

"The only thing I'm pleased about is the fact we got a late penalty to get us a point.

"We didn't defend crosses into the box all that well which is something we've been working hard on recently.

"We're all naturally frustrated with the end result. You would expect that from an honest bunch of boys in the dressing-room.

"At their fourth goal we had a chance to clear it but didn't stop the cross and were punished because of that.

"When it did come into the box, there were enough Tangerine jerseys to get their head on it but they were more hungry to get there, which was disappointing.

"Inverness will go home the more happier of the two teams, which is understandable."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
