A 4-1 defeat to Napoli marked the latest setback suffered by Liverpool this term, but Virgil van Dijk expects them to turn a corner soon.

"Stick together, don't point fingers. Everyone knows that everyone can do better. What I said, we're not robots, we're trying to perform and you can have bad moments. 

"It's how you deal with them and now we'll definitely have a good look at what happened, speak with each other and focus on the game ahead of us. 

"It's good for us that there's a game quite quickly after this and hopefully [we] get a great performance and result."

Liverpool host Wolves in their next Premier League outing on Saturday, before resuming their continental campaign against Ajax on Tuesday.

Van Dijk knows the importance of getting their Champions League group-stage campaign back on track as quickly as possible, adding: "It can change, definitely. 

"There's so many games still to play but you wanted to have a good start. The situation is how it is. 

"Next game in the Champions League will be Ajax at home and we need the fans, we need a good performance from us. 

"It starts obviously on Saturday with a good opportunity against a good side as well, so we'll give everything. What I said, the key is to be together. We need everyone. 

"If you start blaming others and don't look at yourself or create negativity around the club, then you're not getting out of this. I'm fully confident that we'll turn this around together."

Wednesday's demoralising reverse means Liverpool have lost on all three of their trips to Napoli under Jurgen Klopp, the most they've travelled to a particular side without avoiding defeat during his tenure.
