Liverpool 3-0 Brentford: What Frank said

Brentford manager Thomas Frank speaking to BBC MOTD: "I think in general we played a good game and close to being a very good game. We need to remember to look behind the numbers. It's never as good or as bad as them. Today I really liked my team. We were brave, we pressed high, created chances and gave the least away. I felt there was something here for us.

"When you lose 3-0, there's no doubt they were better in the big moments. And it's Liverpool. It's at Anfield. It's Mohamed Salah. But there were some big moments and chances and the second and third goals we should avoid. That would have kept us in the game. There were lots of positives and we just need to go again. In the big moments they handled them better than we did."

On Wataru Endo's challenge on Christian Norgaard: "I think it's a clear free-kick and at least a yellow card on the pitch. I think these situations are not a red card. But in the VAR world, where we have slow motion, and you freeze it and he clearly goes over the ball with too much force onto the leg of Norgaard.

"Then I think, if Rashford's is a red, Curtis Jones' is a red, Josh Dasilva's is a red - then I think this is also a clear red. I don't think any of them should be, but in this era apparently, it is a clear red. I would just like to have that consistency."
