Brendan Rodgers admitted Liverpool were made to pay for “too many mistakes” after the Reds were beaten by Hull City.

The Tigers took an early lead after Jake Livermore’s shot was deflected off Martin Skrtel and past Reds goalkeeper Simon Mignolet.

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard hoisted the Reds level through a 27th-minute free-kick before David Meyler and a Skrtel own goal sealed a Hull win in an open second half.

“I thought we had plenty of effort and commitment but there were too many mistakes and with the ball we didn’t create enough,” Rodgers said.

“It was a disappointing result all round. Our confidence was high, but we did not pass the ball well, we got back into it with Stevie’s free-kick, but we had plenty of possession with no real penetration.

“There is no doubt that we miss a player of Daniel Sturridge’s quality and we do not have a squad that is big enough to cope with his absence.

“We cannot dwell on it too much but we now have two games at home and need to kick on but we have to be better than we were today and we will look to do that on Wednesday.”
