Cape Town - Adam Lallana says Liverpool can't match Chelsea for their experience but says they must learn to win like they do "even when not at their best".

Jurgen Klopp's side have proved they can more than match the best this season, with wins over Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City.

But coming unstuck against the likes of Bournemouth, Swansea and Hull, on a run of two defeats and three draws in their last five league games has left Liverpool in fifth place.

Up next for the Reds is a home clash with Tottenham, and Lallana wants to see his teammates learn from their recent results.

He told the Liverpool Echo: "You can see they (Chelsea) have a lot of experience and that they are used to winning.

"They know how to win games even when not at their best. You don't have to always win by scoring five or six.

"Maybe that's an area we need to improve on. We maybe need to realise how good we are at times.

"We need to learn and get back to winning ways in the league as soon as possible.”
