He apologised numerous times to the club's supporters following the thumping loss, but claims that the nature of the performance makes his position as coach more difficult.
"We know how tough is the Premier League and every single match," said Sanchez Flores.
"It's not about the margin you have when you come or not. Pep said yesterday in his press conference we know it's not about you as a coach, it's about the results.
"So, of course, the result today it damages a lot myself, but one week ago, the results supported me.
"We can see more than one week, we can see longer than one next match. It's like this, so we need to live with this kind of consequence. It's like this, it's our work.
"First we have to say sorry to the fans because they came to the stadium waiting for a good performance from the team and it was very difficult to be on the pitch today.
"After 30 seconds we realised it would be very tough and then after 15 minutes it was impossible to play like this."
