Key takeaways from Southampton's loss to Liverpool

Key takeaways from Southampton's loss to Liverpool Yes, the Saints once again surrendered a lead in their 3-1 home defeat to Liverpool on Friday night, conceding late to lose another Premier League game, but at no stage did it feel like we threw it away. The performance was brave and sincere and they gave the league-leaders a good run for their money. With a bit more quality upfront – something that is sure to be addressed in the off season – Saints could have buried Liverpool in the first 20 mins. Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg bossed the midfield and there were strong performances from Yan Valery, Jannick Vestergaard and Oriel Romeu in support.

Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Conor Coady says they lost at Southampton because they ‘didn’t do their jobs’.

Speaking to the Express and Star, Coady dismissed the notion that they were still reeling from the previous week’s FA Cup semi-final defeat at Wembley.

As usual, the 26-year-old was at the heart of the Wolves defence as they went down to Ralph Hasenhutl’s Saints.

Nathan Redmond opened the scoring for the hosts before Willy Boly equalised for Nuno Espirito Santo’s men on 28 minutes.

Parity only lasted two minutes as Redmond scored his second of the afternoon before Shane Long completed the scoring with just under 20 minutes to go.

Of course, the FA Cup defeat to Watford was of a particularly harsh nature, losing 3-2 in extra time having been 2-0 up with 11 minutes of regular time to play.

However, Coady believes the defeat to Southampton hurt just as much as that one and is keen for him and his team-mates to bounce back as soon as possible.

The centre-back said:

“We’ve prepared right and I can promise you it had nothing to do with last week. We had a job to do at Southampton and we’ve not done it, it’s as simple as that. Monday and Tuesday (after Wembley) was tough, it was quiet, but we got back on it. We’re just as disappointed with this defeat as we were then. It had nothing to do with what happened last week. It was horrible then and this week’s exactly the same.”

The Wolves squad are currently in Marbella for some warm-weather training and are next in action against Brighton and Hove Albion this Saturday.

The victims, both in their 20s, were taken to hospital after the attack on Empire Way, northwest London.
