Liverpool manager Roy Hodgson admitted his side didn’t deserve to win against Wigan Athletic, and could even count themselves lucky to leave the DW Stadium with a 1-1 draw.
Fernando Torres gave Liverpool the lead with a goal in the first ten minutes, but a Hugo Rodallega equaliser for Wigan in the second half ensured the game finished all square.
Hodgson cited fatigue for his side's lacklustre performance, and believes that Roberto Martinez may be feeling aggrieved that his team didn’t pick up more points from the match.
“We didn’t deserve to win the game," he said. "I thought we looked tired today, and I don’t think our passing was anywhere near as good as we would expect it to be.
