Liverpool defender Jose Enrique believes the players have to take their share of responsibility for poor results and not hide behind manager Kenny Dalglish.
Five defeats in their last six Barclays Premier League matches have ruled out any chance of them making a last-ditch bid for Champions League qualification.
The Reds trail fourth-placed Tottenham by 13 points with eight matches remaining and, apart from the slightly unedifying task of keeping the likes of Sunderland, Everton, Swansea and Norwich at bay, their only remaining realistic target is the FA Cup - in which they are in the semi-final.
"The manager takes pressure for us and of course that is good," said the Spaniard. "But the truth is, when we make mistakes or have a bad game, we know where the mistakes come from.
"Who plays the games? The players. Who has to win them? The players too. The players are frustrated just the same (as the fans). We have played good football in many games but against Wigan we didn't deserve to win."
