Dirk Kuyt has admitted that Liverpool cannot perform as poorly as they did in Belgium last night, or other, more clinical sides will punish them.

“It was a bad performance,” Kuyt said. “We tried to do our best and it was not good enough. The forwards just did not have enough of the ball, and our man of the match was Pepe Reina. That says everything about us.

“We will need a big improvement at Anfield. We know we did not play our best game against Liege.”

The initially vocal Reds in the crowd were drowned out by the strong local support and had to watch in dismay as the Belgian champions pounded their side from start to finish.

Kuyt said: “We struggled. We could not pass the ball to our team-mates anywhere near enough.

“It was a difficult night and difficult to know what really went wrong. But the good thing was a clean sheet and that will give us the edge in a fortnight for the second leg.

“We know it was not our best game. But we want to step things up and we know there is quality in the team, we have shown that in pre-season and now we must show it in competitive matches, too.

“We have some big games coming up. So we must not play like this again. We are looking forward to Saturday and the first league game at Sunderland to show who we are and what we are.

“As for the Champions League, fortunately we are still in the tie, but we definitely have to show better form than we showed in Liege. We need to score, we have to play better and we will.”
