The draw sees Laudrup's men record their first clean sheet since August and remain above Liverpool having lost just one of their last eight games.

"I think it was a good point, I think we deserved that point," said the 48-year-old.

"In the first half they had more chances than us but we had chances too and I am pleased with the performance.

"You know when you play against Suarez and (Steven) Gerrard they can always invent something, but I think we handled it well.

"There has been a lot of talk about Suarez and Ashley (Williams) and today we saw two guys trying to do their best.

"Suarez did some good things, but maybe less than he is used to as he played against two guys who did very well.

"There was one foul and yellow card for Chico but it was a fantastic game defensively."

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
