Liverpool boss Benitez blasts Blackburn tactics

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez hit out at Blackburn Rovers' tactics after yesterday's victory at Anfield.

Liverpool found themselves on the receiving end of a number of robust challenges and had only one player booked compared to the five of Blackburn.

Rovers could easily have also had Steven Nzonzi, who pushed Lucas Leiva in the face, and Pascal Chimbonda, who kicked Maxi Rodriguez in the chest, red-carded in off-the-ball incidents.

"Nzonzi was very clear, touching the face of Lucas, and the rules are the rules," said Benitez.

"We have had four of five players with problems, bleeding, and Maxi with stud (marks) in his abdomen. Interesting - but we won."
