Rodgers bemoans 'soft goals'

Published 3 Comments

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers was unhappy with the soft goals his side conceded in the 3-1 defeat to Stoke.

Despite taking the lead through a Steven Gerrard penalty awarded after just 32 seconds two Jon Walters goals, either side of a Kenwyne Jones header, extended Liverpool's winless streak at the Britannia Stadium to five matches.

Rodgers felt his side needed more resilience to combat Stoke's physical pressure. "We conceded soft goals after a great start," he said. "A bit of magic by Luis (Suarez) got our first penalty of the season, Steven sticks it away perfectly and we are 1-0 up at a difficult place to score goals."
