Joe Aribo has called on his Southampton teammates to focus on playing their part properly after another disappointing outing against Everton on Sunday.
Aribo put the Saints ahead just after the restart, but the Saints allowed the lead slipped from reach as the Toffees scored twice to take the game.
In a chat with the Club’s official website, The 25-year-old however stated that the team didn’t do enough to protect their advantage.
“The boys are really disappointed. Going a goal ahead, it’s really frustrating to concede so soon, and the boys are disappointed because we wanted to get a result today (Saturday) and that wasn’t the case,” Aribo said.
“I was thinking about it earlier today, that we’ve been coming from behind, so to get a goal ahead was a good feeling.
“The squad is big, so everyone needs to be focused. We need to work together, be strong, be a unit and be ready to go.”
“To concede so soon is bitterly frustrating, and I and the boys were really not happy about it. We need to go back to the drawing board, focus and learn from our mistakes.”
He added, “That’s the Premier League. Sometimes if you don’t take your chances, you get punished – that’s the game. If you make mistakes, you get punished also.
“We just need to recover because the games are coming thick and fast, and we need to be ready.”
Aribo has scored twice this season, but on both occasions Saints dropped points, and following the latest defeat, Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side have now lost three consecutive Premier League games, and sit 16th on the table, two points above the relegation zone.
