Southampton must cut out the defensive errors to rescue their season, says defender Maya Yoshida.

The Japan international admits they were cut apart by Everton on Saturday.

"We made too much mistakes. Too easy to lose the ball in the midfield," he told the Daily Echo.

"We have to change these mistakes. Against Arsenal and (Everton) we lose three quick goals and too easy I think.

"In defence we should not change after we lose one goal. Offensively, we should keep the ball a little bit more longer."
