Erwin Koeman: Southampton players flat for Man City defeat

Southampton No2 Erwin Koeman admits they fell short of their standards in defeat to Manchester City.

Saints were outclassed by City on Sunday.

"For us it was a bit disappointing," Koeman told NIS. "Especially the game we played on the pitch was not too good.

"There were too many players who were playing below their level. In the end we deserved to lose.

"With a number of clubs in the Premier League, especially Chelsea, Manchester City and Arsenal, there is still a difference. You can see it mostly back on the bench."
