"Krisztian (Nemeth) took his goal well but if I was Sunderland I would have been disappointed because I thought he just nudged their defender before he went through to score. You can't take away the quality of his finish though, with the way he lobbed the ball over their keeper," Ablett told liverpoolfc.tv.
"He went through again in the first half and was brought down. It was really a red card but their defender only got a yellow so I suppose you get one decision in your favour and you don't get another one sometimes.
"I thought Daniel Ayala was outstanding on his debut alongside big Ronald (Huth) who was excellent again. Ronald is like a boy in a man's body and we tend to forget he is only 18. He is one that we have seen an improvement in since he first came here.
"It was also good for me to bring young Gerardo Bruna on again. He is a player for the future and we want give him minutes on the field. It was tough for him against two very experienced centre halves but he always does his best and the more minutes we can give him the better he will be next season."
