Dalglish insists Liverpool didn't deserve West Brom shock

Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish insists their shock defeat to West Bromwich Albion was "just one of those days".

Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish insists their shock defeat to West Bromwich Albion was "just one of those days".

Dirk Kuyt and Jordan Henderson were both denied by the woodwork, Luis Suarez and Andy Carroll had numerous opportunities while Maxi Rodriguez had appeals for a first-half penalty turned down.

Liverpool have won just five times in 17 home matches and tales of missed chances have become all-too commonplace for the Scot.

"It's not just been one of those days; it's been like that seven or eight times here," he said. "There's not much else that we can add to what we've said before so many times after a game at Anfield.

"I think you could go back over the old interviews and it'll be the same thing.

"They just need a bit of luck I think. It sounds repetitive but it's not an excuse.

"We're not running away from something. It's not as if there's something drastically wrong that we can't identify.

"It is just a piece of good fortune that we need."
