Liverpool boss Dalglish: I shouldn't have pushed for Suarez pen

Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish admits he was wrong to push Luis Suarez into taking his missed penalty during yesterday’s 6-1 thrashing of Brighton in the FA Cup.

Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish admits he was wrong to push Luis Suarez into taking his missed penalty during yesterday’s 6-1 thrashing of Brighton in the FA Cup.

Liverpool might have had seven had Suarez converted a penalty late in the game. It was Dalglish who told the club's other penalty takers to stand aside for the Uruguayan.

"That was my fault - I just let sentiment get in the way," said the boss. "But I'll learn my lesson.

"It's a good victory but it was more difficult than the scoreline suggests. Brighton played very well against us at the AMEX in the League Cup and for half an hour or 40 minutes here they were very good as well.

"We deserved to win and go through but whether the score is a true reflection of how the game went, that's open to conjecture."
