Conor Coady on the decision to let the ball go past him:
“The cross had a little bit of a deflection so it’s hit more towards Picks [Pickford] and I was hoping nobody was gonna be there at the back because if I touch it I’ll slide and I think it’s going in my own net.” [Mirror]
Sean Dyche gives his final thoughts on the defeat at Anfield:
“It’s not a game defined in one moment [the first goal], but it was a big moment. At that stage, we had just calmed the game down. They were on top a little bit without opening us too many times. The shape was decent, the work ethic was decent.
“We were playing as well as we had hoped to with the ball. We cause trouble at the set-piece, that’s another weapon for us. We don’t react as quickly as them though, we know they can do that. Then it is a misread from Jordan Pickford and then they are in front.” [EFC]
