Benitez calm after Liverpool suffer Cup defeat

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez is calm about their Carling Cup defeat by Arsenal.

Asked if the defeat would hit his side's confidence, the Reds boss said: "No I don't think so. We had chances and they did too. When you play with nine different players and they perform well, then you have to be pleased with them.

"It's always disappointing to be out of any competition. But at least we played well and we can take away a lot of positives.

"It is better than losing after playing badly."
