Paul Konchesky today accepted responsibility for his part in Tottenham's winning goal on Sunday - and spoke of a determination to up his game as he continues to settle on Merseyside.
The left-back told Liverpoolfc.tv he was 'gutted' by the manner of our 2-1 defeat following an injury-time winner by his direct opponent Aaron Lennon.
It came after an impressive display from those in red - and Konchesky believes there were still many positives to take from White Hart Lane.
The 29-year-old said: "Straight after I knew that I'd have to hold my hands up, but we also had chances to win the game. That's part of football and we've got to try and take the positives out of the game.
"I was gutted (with the winner). Being the last minute as well, it didn't give us any time to get back into the game. But that's life, we've got to put it behind us, and I've got to put it behind myself for the next game."
Asked how he was settling into the team after a summer transfer from Fulham, Konchesky added: "It's taken me a while, and I got injured early on so I'm just getting back to playing at full fitness now. I'm getting used to the atmosphere and the people surrounding the team.
"There is a lot of pressure here but it's a good pressure. The fans want you to be in the top four because that's where Liverpool belong.
"I've got to up my game. Where I've played before has not been as high a standard as Liverpool, but this is a good pressure."
Despite the defeat, Konchesky - who was managed by Hodgson at Fulham - thinks there is evidence that Roy Hodgson is now imposing his brand of football on the team.
"I can see signs that we're starting to play in the style he wants," said the defender. "The more we work on it on the training ground, the more the players get used to what the manager wants.
"We're taking it into games. The performances have been of a much higher standard in the last two games.
"It's about organisation and a lot of hard work. Players filling in for each other when someone's out of position.
"I think the team is becoming organised in the system."
