Carragher: Reds will respond
Jamie Carragher insisted Liverpool would bounce back after a fourth straight defeat in all competitions at home to Lyon.
Yossi Benayoun put the hosts ahead in the 41st minute, only for substitute Maxime Gonalons to head home a corner 18 minutes from the end and Cesar Delgado snatch the winner in added time.
Steven Gerrard also limped off in the first half to increase the problems for manager Rafael Benitez ahead of Sunday's game with Manchester United.
Carragher told Sky Sports 2: "It's a massive disappointment, a bad result which leaves us a lot to do. We're going through a tough patch but we've been through them before, we will come through no doubt.
"We have great fight and character. We had a lot of young lads out there tonight, if we could have hung on (for a draw) it would have been a good result."
Despite their poor run, Carragher feels facing Premier League leaders United at Anfield could be the ideal fixture. "It's always a great game, they are a top side," he added. "That could be the game we need."
