Liverpool managed a late equaliser to rescue a point.
McCarthy told evertontv: â€śIt was exciting for the fans but disappointing for myself. I thought we deserved the three points but we go again next week against Stoke and we need to get three points as soon as possible. Itâ€™s going to be a tough game.
â€śThe belief in the changing room is that weâ€™re still right in the mix. We donâ€™t want to get carried away and say weâ€™re going to get in the Champions League and not do it but weâ€™ve got a good squad.
â€śThis is a great bunch of players and thereâ€™s a real positive mood around the ground. Thereâ€™s a long way to go but we can build on this.â€ť
