Brendan Rodgers says losing can be making of his Liverpool side ahead of their clash against Ludogorets in the Champions League on Wednesday night.

The Reds lost their fourth successive defeat on Sunday after Crystal Palace came from a goal behind to beat Liverpool 3-1 at Selhurst Park.

We’ll keep fighting and working in the belief that the honesty and commitment of the group will eventually get us the results

And Reds manager Rodgers, who was appointed at Anfield in 2012, is confident his squad’s commitment will see their results improve.

“I’ve just been trying to get us, as a team, back to the level of confidence that allows us, first and foremost, to perform to our level,” Rodgers said.

“I always believe that in sport, and in football in particular, losing can be the making of you as a player and a manager – how you respond to that, learn from it and ultimately move on from it. That is something we are very keen to do.

“Sometimes it just takes a game, one action or one moment that can change a season for you. That’s something we have to believe can happen. It hasn’t happened as of late, but apart from maybe a half in a game, or the game at Tottenham, we haven’t been anywhere near our level and we understand that.

“One thing you can never do is give up – that’s something we’ll never do. We’ll keep fighting and working in the belief that the honesty and commitment of the group will eventually get us the results. That’s something we aim to keep working towards.”
