“It was a bad day, we did not have enough energy and we did not pass the ball well enough,” said Benitez.

“And then when we got back into the dressing room we discovered that Chelsea had drawn and Arsenal had lost.

“Those results would have been good for us had we won this one. I would assume Chelsea feel the same way about our result and Arsenal’s defeat.”

“When he did come on Fulham pressurised him straight away. In don’t think one man makes that much difference in such circumstances, when so many other players are off-form you cannot expect one player to change things.”

For Fulham boss Roy Hodgson, the result was a welcome one.

“We have eventually seen through a decent away performance. So often this season we have been 0-0 with 10 minutes to go and conceded a goal,” he said.

“That has sent us home deflated and frustrated. This time we produced a very good performance. In this division, to take a point at Liverpool who are potential champions of England, is very important.

“We had chances in the first half, but when you look at their bench you know they have players they can bring on as good as the ones going off.

“We knew they would throw the kitchen sink at us and that is what happened.

“Mark Schwarzer made two very good saves, but we also had players who had been away on international duty doing well.

“It was ironic the three players who had the longest trips, Brede Hangeland to the Ukraine, John Pantsil to Ghana and Mark Schwarzer to Bahrain, were the ones who played the best.

“If that is how they play after internationals abroad, maybe I should be happy for them to go every week.”
