James Milner says Liverpool must prove that their two-match losing streak is just a blip at Brighton on Saturday (5 pm).
The Reds saw their Premier League lead cut to four points in a 2-1 defeat to Manchester City last Thursday and Jurgen Klopp’s manne were knocked out of the FA Cup by Wolves on Monday night.
And midfielder Milner says: “We have to make sure we bounce back and look at where we can get better.
“You’re never going to go a full season without having blips. I think at the start of this season we weren’t playing our best but we were getting results.
“[It’s] back-to-back defeats now, which really isn’t good enough for us, but you have blips in a season. It’s about how you respond.
