Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers pointed the finger at the young players in his team after they were knocked out of the FA Cup by League One Oldham.
The Reds were hardly in the game during the first half and trailed 2-1 and although the arrival of captain Steven Gerrard just before the hour-mark changed the momentum he could not produce another miraculous recovery as they went down 3-2.
"We are bitterly disappointed. We started the first half poorly and we started the second half and got punished," he said. "I was disappointed with the young players today I've got to be honest."
