Charlie Adam maintains Liverpool are ready for the challenges that lie ahead for the club this season, and has backed his teammates to put a winning run of form together.
The 26-year-old midfielder insists the Reds have put the disappointment of last weekend's 2-1 defeat against Arsenal behind them, and is confident the squad can bounce back when they visit Sunderland this weekend.
"We're in good spirits," Adam told Liverpoolfc.tv. "The most disappointing thing is we couldn't believe we'd lost the game. It was a good performance on Saturday, but that's the way it goes in the Premier League.
"Every game is a massive game at this club. March is probably going to define the season for us and we're going to keep playing and trying to win as many games as we possibly can.
"We've got an FA Cup quarter-final against Stoke in a couple of weeks, which is another massive game, and we've got a lot of good games coming up.
"You can never give up - you never know what can happen in this league. We'll never give up, no matter what. Hopefully we can get ourselves on the road to being successful again.
"The aim is still there to challenge, so we're looking forward to the rest of the season. We've got a lot of tough games, but they're games that we're ready for and hopefully we can win as many as we can."
Despite defeat against the Gunners, which has extended the gap between the two clubs in the race for Premier League fourth spot to ten points, Adam is positive Liverpool still have an outside chance of Champions League qualification, and says there are plenty of positives to be taken from the dominant display at Anfield.
The Scotland international has set his sights on three points against the Black Cats at the Stadium of Light on Saturday, and Kenny Dalglish's side are plotting a fresh charge up the table as we enter the run-in.
"There have been positives all season. I think you can count on one hand how many bad performances we've had," he explained. "For us, it's important how we react to the disappointment of last weekend.
"Now it's a case of dusting ourselves down and getting ready for the next game. It's a tough game away at Sunderland and we know we've got to be ready for it."
