Brendan Rodgers felt Liverpool were robbed of a ‘clear penalty’ during their 2-1 defeat to Chelsea on Saturday.
The Reds fell to their third defeat of the week at Anfield, although Rodgers was left to rue a decision by Anthony Taylor in the 88th minute, who failed to spot Gary Cahill block Steven Gerrard’s shot with his arm.
Rodgers said: “It was a clear one. We worked so hard in the game, we need those decisions. It was quite obvious, it hits his hand, it was a clear clear penalty and the referee has a clear view of it. The players gave everything and we deserved at least a point.”
The Reds had taken a ninth minute lead through Emre Can, before goals from Gary Cahill and Diego Costa condemmed Rodgers men to an eighth defeat of the season in all competitions.
He added: “We have got to keep working hard. “We are hoping Daniel (Sturridge) will be back after the international break. “We understand the frustrations (of the fans), the players, myself and the staff, we have a lot of work to do.”
