BBC Sport - Liverpool 1-1 Chelsea: Brendan Rodgers says Reds unfortunate

Liverpool 'unfortunate not to win'

Brendan Rodgers says Liverpool were "unfortunate not to win" after drawing 1-1 with Chelsea at Anfield in the first leg of the League Cup semi-final.

The visitors were awarded a penalty after Emre Can's clumsy challenge on Eden Hazard and the Belgium forward got up to convert.

However, Raheem Sterling gave Liverpool a deserved equaliser with a superb run and finish, leaving the tie finely poised for the second leg at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday 27 January.
