Brendan Rodgers refused to blame Liverpool keeper Simon Mignolet for the weak punch that helped Norwich City seal a battling Premier League point at Anfield.
Russell Martin volleyed a looping finish over the Belgian international after Mignolet could only partially clear Robbie Brady's initial corner under pressure from Seb Bassong.
Mignolet has come in for criticism during the Reds' lacklustre start to the season but Rodgers insisted he was not at fault for the Canaries' lifeline.
'If I feel I need to make changes, whether it is goalkeeper or an outfield player, then I will do that but I think the goal we conceded was down to other factors in it rather than him,' he said. 'We could have been better in other elements of that. We lost our concentration for a set-piece, which is not so good from our part.
'If you are winning games and things are flowing then the confidence grows and it's at a much higher level than now. We just have to build that back up in training and through the games and it is a step by step process.'
