Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers admits that his side did not create enough during their defeat to Newcastle United in the Premier League.

Brendan Rodgers has conceded that Liverpool did not create enough chances in their Premier League defeat to Newcastle United this afternoon.

Ayoze Perez scored in the second half at St James' Park to inflict a 1-0 defeat on the visitors.

The Reds manager told BT Sport: "We were punished for a mistake and that is what cost us the game. We passed the ball well.

"The options in front of the ball were good but we probably lacked that little bit in the final third of the field. We did not create as much as we would have liked.

"It is not about Mario Balotelli, it is about the team. We lost the game today. We collectively lost as a team and we are disappointed at that."

The defeat, which is their fourth in the Premier League this season, leaves Liverpool seventh in the table.
