Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers insists their denied equaliser at Arsenal should have stood.

A goal down, Luis Suarez took a quick free-kick which released Daniel Sturridge who crossed for Jordan Henderson to tap into the net - only for referee Martin Atkinson to pull play back and book the Arsenal defender.

"It is disappointing because it was great play," said Rodgers.

"I always say to the players to spot the ball and play and they did exactly that.

"We broke away and scored but the referee felt the rules meant he had to stop the play to give the yellow card."
