Stoke 3-1 Liverpool: Rodgers blames poor defending

A "bitterly disappointed" Brendan Rodgers says Liverpool have "no one to blame but themselves" for their 3-1 loss against Stoke.

Steven Gerrard's penalty gave Liverpool an early lead but Kenwyne Jones and a Jon Walters double inspired a Stoke comeback.

Rodgers admits his side need to defend better if they are to avoid conceding "soft goals".
