“In the second half, the way we conceded the first goal, I’m very disappointed with that, very disappointed.
“We are not producing enough. The finishing touch is not there and we are not clinical enough. We have problems in the last third of the field.
“It requires improvement. It requires better decisions and it is our job to improve our players. On Sunday we will face Southampton again and we have to give them a better fight.

I do not regret Nuno
Nuno may have been wishing he had felt a stronger side, but he didn’t suggest that.
And he added: “It was about the schedule, the game, what we have in front of us, the solutions for the team and trying to find other options.
“It is not about regrets, we decided for the moment we had and because we wanted to find other things for the team.
“Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t, and it doesn’t today. There are many things we have to decide. Everyone must do more, when difficult times come, we need the best of everyone.
“It’s a frustrating night for us, we are out of the competition because we don’t compete that well, we conceded easy goals.
“We did not create enough and we will keep trying and looking to improve. We wanted to pass, it was everyone’s wish. “
