Jordan Henderson claims Liverpool's players will not give up on securing a top-four finish despite Saturday's 2-1 defeat to Arsenal.
The Reds enjoyed the better of the lunch-time clash at Anfield and Dirk Kuyt also missed a first half penalty, while they went ahead courtesy of a Laurent Koscielny own goal.
However, the Gunners came back with Robin van Persie's brace sealing the points for Arsene Wenger's men, which moved them 10 points clear of the Merseysiders into fourth spot - which guarantees qualification to next season's Champions League.
Liverpool do have a game in hand on the Londoners and given the quality of their performance, Henderson remains confident that they can rally in their remaining games and make a late surge for the top four.
"Obviously we're disappointed with the result. I thought we should have gotten something out of the game," he told Liverpoolfc.tv.
"We played some good football, particularly in the first half, and had some good chances.
"But that's the way football goes. We've got a big game next week and we've got to try and bounce back."
