Jordan Henderson acknowledged Liverpool's performance in the 3-0 defeat at Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday fell well below the standards expected.

Match action: Liverpool v Brighton

The Reds were beaten in the Premier League at the Amex Stadium after second-half goals from Solly March (two) and Danny Welbeck.

After the game, the captain spoke to Sky Sports to offer his assessment – read on for the interview...

On the result...

I thought Brighton were better than us in all departments, to be honest. It's a real low point for us today as a team. We need to stay together. There's an honest bunch of lads in there and it's a tough moment for us as a team, for sure, but we need to get together, we need to stay together and try to change things really quickly because the games are coming thick and fast and we need to try to learn from the day as best we can and show a reaction.

On 'what went wrong' from his perspective...

I think there wasn't one thing, I think there were numerous things that weren't right at all and haven't been right probably for a little while now. Like I said, we need to be a lot better than that – everybody knows that. In the dressing room after the game, we all know we can be better individually, collectively, everything across the board. And I'll take responsibility, the lads will take responsibility to try to put it right.

On the mood in the dressing room...

Not good, as you can imagine. Pretty low, low on confidence – you can see that when we're playing – energy levels low, everything. Like I said, it's no good feeling sorry for ourselves. I've been through moments like this in my career and you've got to keep fighting, you've got to keep going and hopefully we can change it sooner rather than later.

On the team's current form...

Of course it's really disappointing and we know we can be a lot better, we know we can play better, we know we can give even more – which is the real disappointing thing. But you've got to keep working, you've got to keep going. There's no point in just sitting feeling sorry for ourselves. Like I said, the games are coming thick and fast – one midweek against Wolves and then Chelsea at the weekend. So, big games coming up and you've just got to keep your head down, work together, stay together as a team. Because this is the moment where people can think individually and do their own thing – but it's important we stay together and come through this, and it'll make us stronger in the end.
