Cape Town - Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum has revealed that Jurgen Klopp's charges must dissect their Premier League loss against Burnley and move on.

The Reds were handed their first league loss of the campaign by Hull City on Saturday.

Despite dominating possession, Klopp's side failed to find the back of the net and Wijnaldum admits the team has much improving to do ahead of their encounters against Burton Albion and Tottenham Hotspur.

"It's difficult to say why," he told the club's official website.

"They play differently to Arsenal, with lots of long balls and trying to win the second ball. We made two mistakes and they scored two goals and we didn't create any big chances. That was the story in the first half.

"We expected to create better chances than we did. Sometimes you have the kind of games that it doesn't work, and you have to keep your confidence and look forward.

"Every game I try to learn because every game is different. I'd be happier if I could learn from games we win, but from games you lose you learn more.

"We must move on to the next game and not make the same mistakes we made today, and look forward with confidence," he concluded.
