Brighton manager Gus Poyet accused his side of "comic" defending after they scored three own goals in a 6-1 FA Cup hammering at Liverpool.
Liam Bridcutt twice found himself in the wrong place at the wrong time, whilst Lewis Dunk's disastrous attempt at controlling a Luis Suarez cross also ended in calamity.
"I watched the goals on the computer," said Poyet. "There are a few funny ones in there. They were comic goals."
In front thanks to Martin Skrtel, only to be pegged back by Kazenga Lua Lua's excellent effort, Liverpool cruised home with Andy Carroll capping an outstanding display with his third goal in 10 games before setting up Suarez, who had earlier missed a penalty, to complete the Reds' biggest win since September 2009.
"I haven't spoken to the players about it," continued Poyet. "There were so many individual mistakes it would take all day.
"I made changes at 3-1 and I am responsible for what happened afterwards. But I don't like it and I didn't enjoy it. I learned a lot. I hope my players did the same."
Brighton certainly learned that Liverpool can manage perfectly well without the assistance they were offered. Despite the visitors' best efforts, fair and foul, Carroll refused to be shackled, Steven Gerrard was his usual rampaging self and Suarez, after all that recent controversy, edged further towards top form.
It was the trio's first start together and the timing was perfect given Liverpool will look to secure their first trophy since 2006 when they take on Cardiff in the Carling Cup final at Wembley next Sunday.
"The three of them are fantastic footballers and they played really well," said Dalglish. "The more any team gets iconic players like they are on the pitch the better chance they have of being successful.
"But we have got more than three players. The fact we have done as well as we have and that was the first time the three of them have started a match tells you how well the other boys have done. We will stand and be counted as a squad and I don't think we have done too badly this year."
