He said: "We played better than recently but it was powderpuff stuff. I have no complaints about the result.
"We passed the ball better than Villa and created more today than we have done recently - but the defending for the two goals was terrible.
"Villa got their goals from a cross and a scramble and another one which may have been offside. There are a couple of players not playing as well as they should be.
"But let's put things into perspective. It's the first time for a long time that we have conceded more than one goal in a game away from home."
