Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish would be happy just to see some league victories before the end of the season irrespective of how his side play.
Having dominated throughout and created numerous chances in last weekend's home defeat to West Brom, the Scot will gladly swap style for substance over the coming weeks. There is a danger the Reds could go into next weekend's FA Cup final against Chelsea with a lack of confidence and momentum with more frustrating performances like the one against the Baggies.
And while Dalglish does not intend to abandon his principles, he would welcome a few more points to avoid the club's worst league finish for 58 years, and he said: "We want to win games but it would be nice if we were rubbish and won a game."
