Dyche rues defensive ‘errors’ after 4-2 loss to Liverpool

Sean Dyche blamed his side’s defensive errors as the reason for their 4-2 loss to Liverpool at a blustery Anfield this afternoon.

After their early-season woes at the back, the Clarets had rediscovered their defensive resilience in recent weeks, but were undone this afternoon thanks to a brace apiece from Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane, despite Ashley Westwood giving them a sixth-minute lead.

Speaking about his side’s performance, Dyche blamed his side’s error’s at the back, but not before going all Jurgen Klopp and partially blaming the wind.

”It was tricky. The wind was swirling. We wanted to ask questions and get the ball forward which I thought we did in spells,’’ Dyche told BBC’s MOTD.

“You cannot give a team like Liverpool four goals – we certainly gave them three. You can question the errors but we certainly made a game of it.

“In the first half I don’t think they had too many golden chances yet we were 2-1 down. Even at 3-1, the mentality of the group was good and we got a goal back.

“If you had said to me that we would have 30 points after this stage of the season I would certainly have take it.”
