Dirk Kuyt believes that Liverpool did not deserve to lose their unbeaten home record against Arsenal on Saturday.
The Reds lost 2-1 to the Gunners at Anfield, signalling their first defeat of the season on home soil.
They were beaten by two goals from Robin van Persie after Laurent Koscielny had turned the ball into his own goal for Liverpool's opener.
Kuyt had the chance to give the hosts the lead while the scores were locked at 0-0, but missed his penalty as well as the subsequent rebound.
It leaves the club in seventh place in the Premier League, but they are now cut adrift of the top five clubs in the division.
Kuyt is ruing the missed chances during the game against Arsenal but enjoyed working alongside striker Luis Suarez.
He told the club's official website: "It's very disappointing. I thought the team played really well. We should have scored at least three goals.
"I enjoyed linking up with Luis Suarez and we created enough chances but we need to kill those chances.
"To lose was just unbelievable. Without Van Persie they are a completely different team.
"I had a feeling I didn't hit the penalty as properly as I normally do but that's football - sometimes you score goals, sometimes you miss penalties.
"We had other opportunities to kill the game."
The Reds have some key games during March, including a Merseyside derby at Anfield and an FA Cup tie at home to Stoke City.
Kuyt believes his side will be in the right condition going into the next group of games.
He added: "With no midweek match we now have some time to recover after a lot of games over the last few weeks. We will be fresh for the Sunderland game."
