Hull City captain Curtis Davies has praised the Liverpool’s potent performance after the 5-1 win at Anfield on Saturday.
A penalty spot brace to James Milner along with singles to Adam Lallana, Philippe Coutinho and Sadio Mane consigned the Tigers to a heavy defeat, and the Hull skipper had not doubt as to who the better side was on the day.
“They (Liverpool) didn’t give us a chance to breathe,” Davies told reporters.
“It is hard to lay a glove on anyone. When there is so much inter-changing you cannot put your mark on one person. It is tough to make a tackle. One second Mane will be in that hole, then Lallana and then Coutinho. There is a lot of interchange, quick football and with the full backs playing like wingers it becomes very difficult because you end up with backs against the wall,” Davies said.
The Anfield outfit have been criticised in recent seasons for their inconsistency following big wins. After their 4-3 win over Arsenal in game week one, a 2-0 loss to Burnley followed.
After the Reds’ 2-1 victory away to Chelsea, this match was an important outing to see if they could build on their win over a top four rival.
