Jay Spearing insists Liverpool will come back stronger when they return to Manchester City in the Carling Cup.
The 23-year-old midfielder was part of the side that lost 3-0 at the Etihad Stadium on Tuesday night in the Premier League, sinking without a trace despite City going down to 10 men in the closing stages.
Liverpool have the chance to redeem themselves in the two-legged semi-final of the Carling Cup and Spearing believes his side can cause a lot of problems.
"We know what we have to do better when we come back here next week in the Carling Cup and we will be better," he told the club's official website.
"We will get at them right from the off and I still feel we can cause them a lot of problems. They are going to be two massive games and I don't see any reason why we can't make the final.
"We have Steven Gerrard back now and he is a massive influence on the team and we will go into the two games with confidence.
"Before we can think about that though we have to get ready for our next game which is the FA Cup against Oldham.
"It's another important game for us and we want to get back to winning ways in front of our own fans."
He added: "The goals we conceded (at City) were our own fault and we could have done better to prevent them.
"I thought as a team we did quite well overall. We used the ball well at times and just some lapses in concentration cost us the game.
"Sometimes it is the small details which can cost you in these games. When it was still 0-0 Jordan Henderson put a great ball through to Stewart Downing, and he was unlucky not to score when Joe Hart made a great save. If that had gone in it could have been a different story."
