Dirk Kuyt insists Liverpool players believe in the methods of manager Roy Hodgson.

Defeat to Blackpool has Liverpool in the dropzone.

"It is still early days for the manager and we have to keep working but one thing I do know is that we will come back stronger for this experience," he said.

"It's frustrating that we have got the international break now because we will have this result hanging over us and everyone in the dressing room wants to put it behind us as quickly as possible.

"We know this result has not helped but we just have to try to focus on the spirit we showed in the second half.

"We have got to make sure we show it in the next game."
