Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish has vowed to focus on the positives following his side's 1-0 defeat to West Brom on Sunday.
Peter Odemwingie's 75th-minute goal completely against the run of play made sure Albion recorded their first win at Anfield for 45 years.
The Scot has run out of answers to explain why his team have now won just one league game at home in 2012 and have dropped 27 points at Anfield in the current campaign.
But he wants his Reds side to focus on the positives from the game, despite missing the chance to regain seventh place from near-neighbours Everton.
"You don't create the opportunities we created and the panic we created if we are not doing something right," he said.
"But it is hard and it is great credit to the players they keep persevering and pushing on.
"We are not trying to say we are happy with what has gone on but there is nothing drastically wrong with what we have done - we have just not got the points we have deserved.
"You can say the result was not right but you cannot say it was a bad performance.
"It may sound repetitive but it is pretty accurate. We wouldn't use it as an excuse.
"We just have to keep going, take another blow on the chin and come out again."
