Injuries sour Liverpool win

Liverpool are counting the cost of an extra-time League Cup victory over Notts County with the Reds suffering a heavy injury toll in the 4-2 win.

The Reds were cruising at half-time with goals to Raheem Sterling and Daniel Sturridge putting Liverpool 2-0 up at Anfield.

But goals to Yoann Arquin and Adam Phillip stunned the home crowd and sent the game into extra-time.

But another Sturridge strike and a goal to Jordan Henderson finally put an end to the League One side’s resistance.

However, injuries to Joe Allen and new signings Kolo Toure and Aly Cissokho soured the club’s hard-fought victory.

“We will assess them tomorrow. It was obviously disappointing with Cissokho getting injured so early on - he was distraught coming off as you can imagine,” Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers said.

“Joe Allen we just need to check - he has maybe tweaked his hamstring.

“And Kolo Toure has overstretched his groin, so we need to assess that, which doesn't look so good to be honest.”

Despite the injury woes, Rodgers said his players showed ‘tremendous character’ to comeback from the disappointment of losing their two-goal advantage.

”I have to give credit to the players,” Rodgers said. “A year ago we might have lost that game, but I think we showed tremendous character, especially having gone down to 10 men.

“We controlled the game at that stage - we showed we wanted to win the game and get the goals, and we did that.

“To be 2-0 up and then give away the goals we did is obviously disappointing.

“But I can only commend the two groups really - my players for the brilliant character they showed to keep going and fighting, and also you have to give big credit to Notts County because they were 2-0 down, we had hit the post and should have scored more, but they stayed in it.

“You have seen it - no matter what level you are at, when you get a goal back to make it 2-1, you are always in with a chance of getting something and they forced extra-time.

“You can't sit and say you are ever totally comfortable when it's 2-2 and you're down to 10 men in extra-time.

“But the players have got a real togetherness and I could sense that they just have that mentality now to get through.

“Chris (Kiwomya, the Notts County manager) can be very proud of his team. I'm sure it was a very entertaining game to watch.”
