Cape Town - Liverpool will make good use of the two week break to bounce back after a string of defeats according to star winger Raheem Sterling. 

"After a defeat you usually want the next game to come along fast but I think having this break now can help us," Sterling told the club's website.

"We need to get going after the international break and start winning games to turn this around. Losing hurts, especially losing a big game at home. Every team goes through sticky patches but I'm sure we'll start climbing the table soon.

"I think there were points in the game when it looked like we would nick a point or even win the game. I thought we played well at times and in patches we produced the kind of football needed to win.

"But Chelsea showed why they are top of the league. When they got chances they were clinical and they defended for their lives. That's something we need to do - we need to be clinical because that helps you to win games.

"I do think we are playing better football and I'm sure we'll soon put together a run of wins. We've got to pick ourselves up, regroup and go again after the international break."

Liverpool are set to travel to Selhurst Park on November 23 for a clash against Crystal Palace but will have Daniel Sturridge back for that match. 

This injury news pleased Sterling. He said: "It will be a massive boost to have Daniel back playing."

"We have missed him and the more quality players you have fit and available, the better. He gives us that threat in the box and he scores goals. We're all really looking forward to having him back in the team." added the 19-year-old winger.
