London: Liverpool had no answers to Oldham in the FA Cup on Sunday, joining a lengthy list of Premier League teams to exit at the fourth-round stage of the world's oldest knockout competition.
Third-tier struggler Oldham stunned Liverpool with a 3-2 win.
"You have to take it on the chin, but there has been plenty of warnings throughout the weekend," Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers said. "If your application is not right, you can get found out."
Liverpool fielded a weakened lineup but still contained a raft of internationals and millionaire players, who didn't appear to be up for the fight until it was too late.
