Rodgers bemoans Liverpool luck

Brendan Rodgers felt his Liverpool team were unfortunate to be restricted to a 0-0 draw against West Ham on Sunday.

Liverpool enjoyed plenty of possession but were unable to break down a resilient Hammers team that came close to finding the breakthrough when Jack Collison's header was cleared off the line.

But Rodgers was left pointing to a questionable offside decision that denied Daniel Sturridge in the second half and would not criticise his players for the goalless draw that leaves them seventh.

"We obviously played very well," Rodgers told Sky Sports. "I thought some of our game today was very good.

"We had to control West Ham, coming off the back of a good result against West Brom, on the counter-attack and I thought we did that well.

"Offensively our drive and determination going forward was very good in our game. But you need the energy to keep persevering until you get the goal.

"Obviously when we did get the goal it was deemed offside and if you watch it again it was clearly onside so that was the bit of luck we needed to get the goal and open the game up.

"Unfortunately, it wasn't to be."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title.

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
