Defender Jamie Carragher claims the current poor form is 'un-Liverpool' like ahead of a week which will make or break their season.
Saturday's 3-1 defeat at Craven Cottage – their sixth loss from the last seven games – has seen the Anfield club slip nine points off the pace set by Premier League leaders Chelsea.
Their European hopes rest on winning Wednesday's difficult Champions League trip to Lyon.
"These are tough times and it hurts a lot," said Carragher, who was sent off late in the game at Craven Cottage.
"This is un-Liverpool like. But it is not just the fans who are disappointed, it is the players, the staff and the manager.
"We have got to get back on track with Lyon, which is another massive game.
"We made up for a few things last week by beating Manchester United. Then we have had two defeats since.
"There is only us on the pitch that can turn it around and there will be a lot of talk about this result again.
"We have got to sort this out with the management and staff. We can't afford to be too downhearted for too long because we've got to get ready for the next game."
