If you were to blame one thing at the Emirates for your side losing, you surely wouldn’t pick the pitch, would you?

Quite possibly the best playing surface in the world, Brendan Rodgers criticised it for being ‘quite slippy’ after the game, adding that Emre Can ‘isn’t that kind of player’ despite a horrible tackle from behind on Danny Welbeck.

Going three goals down in an eight-minute spell in the first half, Rodgers seems to think that his side were unlucky not to be one up, completely missing the chances Arsenal had to put the game out of reach in the first 15 minutes.

Giving Hector Bellerin absolutely no credit for his goal, he said it was down to terrible defending.

His best quote was, however, at his press conference when he said about Can’s sending off:

“He’s not that type of player. It’s a wonderful surface here but it’s actually quite slippy and greasy”

Here’s his post-match interview in which you can see his delusion and bitterness in all its glory (pitch comment in second video).
