- Ricardo Pereira reflects on Saturday’s 2-1 defeat by Liverpool at Anfield
- The right-back says City felt ‘frustrated and unlucky’ following the loss
- Extra-Time will assess the clash with the Reds at 6pm BST on Monday
While disappointed with the loss, Ricardo stressed the importance of City being able to improve their performances in the Premier League this campaign.
“After [we were] losing the game 1-0 and getting back onto the scoresheet, it’s difficult to take, [with a] goal in the end with the penalty,” Ricardo told LCFC TV. “We feel frustrated and unlucky.
The Portugal international played 90 minutes during the encounter with Liverpool.
“The details make the difference in these types of games. We knew we had to be compact defensively and we had to play too because we have the quality to do it. At the end, the result is 2-1 to them and we feel sad for that.
“I think we did a good job, but I think we can do even better. We have more quality than we showed and sometimes we lost the ball too quickly. We have to keep working and keep improving.”
Ricardo knows City have fared well so far this term, but believes there’s plenty more to come after the second international break of the campaign.
Unfortunately, we don’t have a game for a short period, but in this break, we have to work, and like I said, to recover from this game and to bounce back.Ricardo Pereira LCFC TV
He added: “for this first part of the season, I think the balance is positive for us. I think we have to keep working, like I said before, and we have to see the things we didn’t do that well to improve and keep doing the good things we are doing.
“Unfortunately, we don’t have a game for a short period, but in this break, we have to work, and like I said, to recover from this game and to bounce back.”
