Cape Town - Liverpool striker Danny Ings was left feeling extremely disappointed after Liverpool failed to hold onto the lead he gave them.

Norwich left Liverpool winless in four Premier League games by grabbing a 1-1 draw at Anfield on Sunday.

Russell Martin's 61st-minute equalizer for the visitors, after goalkeeper Simon Mignolet flapped at a corner, took the gloss off Danny Ings scoring his first goal for Liverpool.

“We came off the pitch extremely disappointed we didn’t get all three points,” Ings told Liverpoolfc.com.

“From the amount of chances we created, I think everyone in the stadium was thinking the same thing.

“But there were a lot of positives, especially in the second half. The game started a little bit flat, but we turned that around, created a lot of chances and there are positives to take from the game.

“A little bit of concentration was lost at the corner, but we’ll sit down and talk about that and get it right.”

Ings' goal capped a livewire performance from the substitute – one which won the acclaim of the Kop for his endeavour and pressing.

“I came on and tried to put a live spark into the game,” he continued. “I wanted to come on and try to stretch them in behind and make a lot of movements to create space for Philippe [Coutinho] and Daniel [Sturridge].

“With the goal, it was great to get off the mark – but I should have had two, mind! Hopefully next game we can put it right.”

Next up for Liverpool is a Capital One Cup tie with Carlisle United on Wednesday evening before home meetings with Aston Villa and FC Sion (Europa League).
