Liverpool boss Rodgers: I expected Carroll replacement. End of

After defeat to Arsenal, Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers made clear his frustration with Andy Carroll's departure to West Ham United.

Rodgers released Carroll on Thursday night thinking Clint Dempsey would arrive from Fulham before the transfer window closed on Friday.

However, Liverpool failed to match Fulham's demands for the United States international and after trying to increase the bid by adding players into the mix, Dempsey instead opted to join Tottenham.

"No," said Rodgers when asked whether he would have let Carroll leave, then "very" when quizzed about how confident he was of getting in a replacement.
