Southampton boss Hassenhuttl rues the offside goal from Neby Keita which allowed Liverpool to stage a 3-1 come back.

Southampton took a well deserved lead against Liverpool but the Reds ultimately prevailed as they continue their title charge with only five games remaining. The Saints boss says he rues the wrong call which saw his team concede the equaliser from Liverpool.

“It doesn’t feel good,” the Southampton boss told Sky Sports. “The guys are frustrated, but they showed a very good performance. It’s a long way to go if you score after nine minutes against this team with this quality.”

“It would have been interesting if we got the second goal, Shane had a big chance, and it was a period where Liverpool were a little bit surprised by us I think.

“We didn’t [score again] and then 1-1 was offside before which was a pity, but you have to say you need a perfect game against such a team and the perfect game you have if you don’t make it easy like we did in the last 10 minutes.

“They deserved to win because they were the better team at the end but I think we can be proud of our team.”
