Liverpool midfielder Yossi Benayoun admits they must beat Chelsea this weekend to get their title bid back on track.
The Reds dropped two more crucial points following Wednesday's 1-1 draw with Wigan at the JJB Stadium to leave them two points behind leaders Manchester United, who also have a game in hand.
The draw also enabled Chelsea to leapfrog them in the table ahead of their meeting at Anfield this weekend, a game you can catch live on Sky Sports 1 and HD1.
Benayoun, who scored Liverpool's opener at Wigan, has challenged his team-mates to prove their critics wrong by bouncing back to winning ways against title challengers Chelsea.
"We are very disappointed and expect to win these games, and we have to start winning games soon - that needs to start on Sunday with a very important game against Chelsea," said Benayoun.
"Every game is important. We have to take three points against Chelsea just like we should have won against Wigan.
"It's important to take each game as it comes and Chelsea is the next game at home, so we have to concentrate and do our best against them.
"I'm sure that we will turn things around and start winning games soon - that is something we have to do.
"We definitely have the quality to do that - we have a lot of big players like Stevie, Carra and Torres - the next game will be massive for us."
