Roy's Spurs verdict
Roy Hodgson was left to lament a double blow after his side's last-gasp 2-1 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur was compounded by an injury to Jamie Carragher.
Martin Skrtel had given the Reds a first-half lead, only to then deflect a Luka Modric cross beyond his own 'keeper Pepe Reina for the equaliser.
Carragher left the field with what appeared to be a discloated shoulder before Aaron Lennon slotted home the winner, leaving Hodgson frustrated.
"I'm very disappointed because I didn't feel we deserved to lose this game," Hodgson told his post-match press conference.
"It was especially disappointing because it came at a time when we had to reorganise our defence when Jamie Carragher had to leave the field.
"It seemed to be a cruel way to come away from a game where we played well only to end up with nothing and losing our talismanic centre-half.
"We then paid the price for not dealing with a very simple long ball which caught us unaware and Lennon then used his pace and sneaked in to score the winning goal.
"I'm finding it hard to come to terms with the fact we have got nothing out of this game, but the result is not going to change with me being disappointed.
"We had plenty of chances in the game and we played well enough to have put this game to bed before half-time and then just after the interval, but we didn't do so and then you always run the risk of the other team getting themselves back into it.
"Tottenham are a very good attacking team and they certainly asked lots of questions of us, but I thought we asked plenty of questions of them as well."
Hodgson was also quizzed by reporters about whether he felt his team should have had a penalty when Dirk Kuyt went down in the area under a strong challenge from Benoit Assou-Ekotto.
He added: "I haven't seen it again but we are football coaches and we are also fans and we see things from our own point of view.
"Of course from my position on the bench I thought it was a penalty, but I haven't seen it again. It was obviously very close, put it that way.
"I was a bit distressed at first when Tottenham got a penalty, but having seen it back on the slow motion on the video it shows David Ngog has got no right to jump in that way and therefore a penalty was right against him."
Journalists also asked Hodgson if he felt Fernando Torres was suffering from a crisis of confidence.
Hodgson said: "I think he's getting much better and crisis in confidence is too strong a phrase. His confidence is good.
"Because Fernando sets such very high standards he will be disappointed he didn't take one of the chances that came his way, but I was pleased with Fernando today. He and Ngog were very good up front and we created a lot of chances and some good opportunities."
Hodgson was also asked for his verdict on the FA Cup 3rd round draw which will see the Reds face a trip to Old Trafford to face arch rivals Manchester United.
The boss added: "I think it will be a good game and it is one we will look forward to.
"In many ways it is a shame to see two Barclays Premier League teams face each other so early on in the competition, but it will be a difficult game for them as well as for us.
Carra injury latest
Roy Hodgson fears Jamie Carragher dislocated his shoulder during Sunday's 2-1 Barclays Premier League defeat to Tottenham Hotspur.
Liverpool's No.23 will have the injury further assessed at Melwood on Monday.
"We think Jamie has disclocated his shoulder which is a real blow for us and for him," Hodgson told his post-match press conference.
"I don't know at this stage how long Jamie will be out for but I would think it will be quite long because it's a serious injury.
"It is a blow for us. Agger is still out injured and we are not really that well blessed for centre-halves.
"We are now without Steven Gerrard and Jamie for a period of time - both of whom are the lifeblood of this club."
Man United and Liverpool to face off in FA Cup
LONDON - Fierce rivals Manchester United and Liverpool were drawn to face each other Sunday in January's third round of England's FA Cup.
Premier League leader United, which will host the game at Old Trafford, has won the last two meetings against its northwest rival but lost the teams' most recent FA Cup encounter 1-0 in the 2005-06 fifth round.
Arsenal will host second-tier Leeds and Chelsea will host another League Championship side Ipswich.
Non-league side York is at Premier League high-flier Bolton, while FC United of Manchester — the team set up by disaffected fans in the wake of Malcolm Glazer's 2005 takeover of Manchester United — will host last season's runner-up Portsmouth if it wins a replay against Brighton.
FC United and Brighton drew 1-1 Saturday.
The third round is scheduled for Jan. 8-9.

Cassano 'ready to make Liverpool transfer in January'
Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson could be set to tie up a deal for Sampdoria's Antonio Cassano.
According to reports in Italy, the striker is keen on a move after a bust-up with the Genoa-based club's president Riccardo Garrone.
The Italian international is alleged to have come to loggerheads with his employer after failing to attend a club event and there have been suggestions that the rift is so severe that Sampdoria are considering tearing up his contract.
It is not the first time the temperamental star's personality has gotten in the way of his football.
He famously had a run-in with current England manager Fabio Capello, who coined the phrase 'Cassanata' in reference to him.
Italian journalists now regularly use Cassanata to describe behaviour that is considered detrimental to team harmony.
However, Cassano's talent on the football pitch is undisputed and has led to him playing for top clubs like Roma and Real Madrid, in spite of his fiery nature.
He could be just what Liverpool need to push them back into the top four and see them competing for honours again after a tumultuous start to the season.
The attacking guile that Gioiello di Bari Vecchia - the Jewel of Old Bari, as he is nicknamed in Italy - provides could be perfect for taking the pressure off Steven Gerrard and Fernando Torres.
