Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers admits his side lacks confidence after a number of disappointing results in April.
The Reds needed a late Steven Gerrard goal to take all three points against Queens Park Rangers as they keep hold of fifth position in the table.
"I think you can see that the confidence is a little affected," Rodgers said.
"Certainly, the belief is still there with the players and you see how hard they are working.
"But if we were a bit more confident, we might have went on and won 3-0 or 4-0 with the chances that we created. We made it tough for ourselves but we responded brilliantly once they drew level.
"QPR punished the chances we missed but the spirit my players showed and the attitude they had to keep fighting typified the mentality in the group and they deserved the three points in the end."
