​Middlesbrough skipper Gibson admits harsh lesson from Liverpool defeat

Middlesbrough skipper Ben Gibson admitted they could have no complaints about the 3-0 Liverpool defeat but insisted Saturday's showdown will carry even more importance.

Gibson told his club's official website: "We have to learn the harsh lesson, take it on board, remember it and improve on it and we have a huge game coming our way this weekend.

"We know from the Championship that you have got to beat the teams around you and if you can't beat them, don't lose to them.

"It's something we've learned over the last two Championship campaigns and it's no different this year - we've really got to compete and pick up points against these teams.

"Obviously if you can take points from Man City, Arsenal and Liverpool it's a bonus. But it's those games like Swansea that are going to be the big ones."
