Quoted: Houllier’s Defence of Starting Selection

“We started the team with Emile Heskey and Gaby Agbonlahor and Nathan Delfouneso, who is an Under 21 international, so that attack was practically three internationals.

“We have quality and we use it.

“I don’t think Ashley Young or Stewart Downing would have avoided the first goal, which was very unfortunate.

“After being down to 1-0 it was difficult.”

“We have to acknowledge that we were beaten by a team that is better than ours at the moment,” added Houllier.

“I don’t think we had a bad game.

“I admit that we didn’t hurt them enough (but) the score is very flattering for them.”
