Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp admitted his side's performance was poor against Southampton and wants a quick response.
"I know they are great guys, super boys, fantastic football players, but tonight they were not good," the German coach said per Football365.
"If I think they should have done better then I get angry, not for long, but I get angry. They know that. It was always like this.
"Just because they won something in the past, doesn't mean you are always like this.
"We don't have to make it bigger than it is, but we didn't win the last three games. That's all our fault, mainly my fault, but the boys had a hand as well and we have to change that.
"If you bring yourself (into) a situation like you did tonight, against an opponent like Southampton, then you play with fire.
"Southampton are too good for that, Premier League teams are too good for that, and we don't score late goals because we did it in the past.
"No, you do that because you put them under so much pressure that they cannot cope any more. Southampton were on the edge of that, but we helped them. That's all. We were not good enough tonight."
