The Canaries have now suffered 18 defeats in their 26 away Premier League matches since Hughton took charge and have conceded 28 goals in the league this season, making their defence the joint-worst in the top flight along with Sunderland's.
West Brom are next up at The Hawthorns on Saturday and Hughton is looking for a much-improved performance after they were destroyed by Luis Suarez's four goals at Anfield.
"We were up against a world-class player but if you allow him space and time he can hurt you and he hurt us. It is one we have to learn from and move on from," he said.
"The stats speak for themselves. We are on the back of a big defeat at Manchester City and at Liverpool. We have to defend better as a team. The individual errors are costing us.
"We are hurting and I certainly want to see a reaction. We have been able to react in the right way this season. I want to see a performance which gives us a good chance of winning the game.
"It's an opportunity for us. You want the next game to come around a little bit quicker, especially on the back of the defeat we had. It's a game we must look forward to.
"We've said what we had to say and you have to get that out of the way as quickly as possible and stick to a game plan to beat West Brom on Saturday.
"It will be a tough test but we have got to be grateful this game has come around as quickly as it has. It gives us an opportunity to right some wrongs. The only way to bounce back is to work hard and believe in yourself."
