Mauricio Pellegrino admits his side are in a difficult moment, after a 3-0 defeat to Liverpool in the Premier League.

A brace from Mo Salah and a Philippe Coutinho strike earned the hosts all three points at Anfield.

And Pellegrino was left to rue the costly mistakes, which left the deficit insurmountable.

“I think we started well in the first half an hour. We played with energy, pressing well and made some counter-attacks,” the Saints boss reflected.

“After we made a couple of mistakes which against this team we cannot make and with their quality they don’t need too much to create problems.

“After the two goals it was really difficult for us to come back.

“Liverpool are really aggressive in pressing high and it was difficult for us to move the ball. We are used to keeping the possession more than the opponent.

“We know that we are in a difficult moment in terms of results. In these moments though you learn where you are at and we need to express our character.”
