“I was very angry during the break. We defended well, that was not the problem. But in possession of the ball was the mistake on the midfield and in the attack. We have members far too often losing the ball.”
“Sometimes you have hard decisions and hope for a good response. That happened in the second half,” said Koeman, who is in the peace Ross Barkley exchanged for Gerard Deulofeu.
