Cape Town - Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers said he was delighted with his side's performance against Arsenal on Sunday, but admits they cannot afford to keep drawing matches.

The Reds pounced in the 97th minute at Anfield this weekend to snatch an unlikely 2-2 draw, given the fact they had played the final quarter of the game a man down following Fabio Borini's sending off.

The result left the Merseysiders nine points adrift of the top four heading into Christmas, but, according to Football411, despite managing only a stalemate, Rodgers believes his side's performance this weekend was even better than in the 5-1 win over the Gunners at Anfield in February.

Rodgers told Sky Sports: "Our performance today was better than our 5-1 last season, there's no question about that.

"The dominance we had of the game today was fantastic, and the efforts on goal.

"We want to change these draws into wins and I'm confident as the season goes on that can happen."
