Gomez was disappointed as the Reds fell 1-0 away from home against Atletico after conceding an early goal.
But he knows it is a two-legged affair, and believes all the players are determined to progress to the last eight.
The England international defender told Liverpool's official website as they prepare for a visit from West Ham on Monday: "It's disappointing and not something we're used to.
"But if anything, it just gives us that motivation to bounce back and make it right as quickly as possible. Sometimes it happens and you need to take the positives from it.
"It gives us that hunger again – not that we didn't have it but we just want to bounce back and make it right. That's what we'll try to do."
