Kenny Dalglish felt his much-changed side, with Saturday’s FA Cup final against Chelsea in mind, deserved nothing in the 1-0 defeat to Fulham

Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish blasted his much-changed side’s attitude after their 1-0 defeat against Fulham, insisting that they deserved nothing.

The Reds boss had made nine changes with Saturday’s FA Cup final against Chelsea in mind but Martin Skrtel’s own goal was enough to condemn the Merseyside club to defeat.

“Their attitude was not right and if you get a bad attitude you are going to get a bad performance and that is what we got,” he said.

“I think that is an accurate appraisal.

“I am culpable as well as I changed a lot of players to try to give everyone an opportunity to get in the frame for Saturday.

“I suppose by doing that it was a contributory factor to what happened but you can only be fair.

“I tried to be fair and give everyone an opportunity - maybe I was wrong.

“There were one or two positives but there were too many negatives.

“We cannot play at that tempo, we have to play at a quicker tempo than that. We deserved nothing.”

The likes of Luis Suarez, Steven Gerrard and Craig Bellamy are expected to return for Saturday’s final at Wembley.
