Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish was furious with his players after defeat to Fulham.

With Saturday's FA Cup final against Chelsea in mind the Scot made nine changes - leaving out the likes of Luis Suarez, Steven Gerrard and Craig Bellamy - but saw his team lose to Martin Skrtel's fifth-minute own goal.

"Their attitude was not right and if you get a bad attitude you are going to get a bad performance and that is what we got," he said.

"I think that is an accurate appraisal. I am culpable as well as I changed a lot of players to try to give everyone an opportunity to get in the frame for Saturday.

"I suppose by doing that it was a contributory factor to what happened but you can only be fair.

"I tried to be fair and give everyone an opportunity - maybe I was wrong.

"There were one or two positives but there were too many negatives.

"We cannot play at that tempo, we have to play at a quicker tempo than that. We deserved nothing."
