Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers admits that “in terms of numbers”, a 1-1 draw at home to Norwich is disappointing.
Rodgers may have been referring to the scoreline, the number 13 next to the word Liverpool in the Premier League table, the four goals they have scored in six games or the 23 shots that brought just one goal at Anfield on Sunday.
“It is disappointing and frustrating not to get the three points,” said Rodgers, who started with both Daniel Sturridge and Christian Benteke in attack, but still produced a performance that was more YAWN than YNWA.
“We didn’t pass the ball well in the first half but second half we created more opportunities.
“We had chances to win the game but didn’t take them. Our supporters were brilliant and sensed the shackles were lifted from the players after the opening goal.
“But you have got to be clinical and we didn’t take those chances. In terms of numbers it’s not so good but for me it’s all about the performance.”
