Carlo Ancelotti praised his team for defending Liverpool, but acknowledged that they had chances at the other end.
“We’ve been focused, we’ve sacrificed. At the end, we had the opportunity to score. Liverpool played a good game, they had more possession, but we were really good defensively,” he said at the.
He continued, “They pushed very far, so it was hard to find a response from the bottom, so we opted to play a longer game.
“Offensively, we were attempting to build from the back. They pressed very high, so it was hard to find a response from the back, so we decided to play a long ball.”
While Ancelotti was a little frustrated at how near his side had come to getting all three points, he was satisfied with the quality of their results.
“Really, we came pretty close to it, but it was a difficult game, a rough game. We’ve performed really well.”
