Liverpool's defeat by Crystal Palace made for an 'angry' home dressing room at Anfield, Jordon Ibe has revealed.
But the winger says he and his teammates won't be using their midweek Europa League exploits as an excuse for their first loss under Jürgen Klopp.
The Reds were downed by Alan Pardew's men on Sunday as goals from Yannick Bolasie and Scott Dann either side of a Philippe Coutinho leveller clinched the points.
Klopp's team were vying for their fourth victory on the spin in all competitions, having defeated Rubin Kazan on Thursday evening before undertaking the taxing trip back to England.
However, Ibe believes a lack of composure was to blame for the result, rather than any tiredness in the legs.
"It's disappointing, everybody's angry," he told Liverpoolfc.com.
"We played alright and we created chances to get the goals but it just didn't come today.
"[The manager] just told us to keep our composure because it shouldn't be an excuse having a midweek game.
"We didn't start the best, it's just improving on that and starting from the first minute, keeping the ball, keeping composure, building into the game and trying to win."
Klopp had overseen six fixtures without defeat since his appointment prior to Palace's 2-1 win at Anfield.
Ibe is now hoping that a maiden loss under the German does not affect confidence in the squad too much, especially given that the Reds performed well for much of the game.
"[It's a] new manager, new system, we're just trying to build and keep the confidence in the team," he added.
"Obviously losing today will have an effect on some players but we just need to keep it going and hopefully we can win the next game.
"As I said, I thought the team did well today and we created chances, it's just frustrating not getting the goals.
"When we get back from international duty hopefully we can work on that and start again."
