Martin Skrtel says he and his Liverpool teammates were unhappy with the goalless draw at home to Hull City on Saturday.
Despite an improved performance – and a much needed second clean sheet of the season – the Reds failed to take all three points at Anfield, despite dominating for much of the game.
And the Slovakian has admitted he and his teammates were left frustrated by the result.
“After the Real Madrid game, we wanted to win and get the three points,” the centre-back said post match. “But, unfortunately, we couldn’t score a goal and it was just a draw. It’s not enough and we’re not happy with that.
“We knew it was going to be a tough game because Hull City play well; they got a point at Arsenal so we knew they were going to defend well. They showed that again. We tried to play our game, move the ball and create chances – but we couldn’t take them.”
On the satisfaction of at least securing a clean sheet, he added: “It’s nice because there has been a lot of criticism about our defending, so I’m glad we got a clean sheet. The clean sheet is a small plus for us.”
