Martinez disappointed with Southampton defeat

Everton manager Roberto Martinez had vented his disappointment after losing 2-0 to Southampton on Saturday, Sky Sports reports.

Everton went down to two own goals from Seamus Coleman and Antolin Alcaraz as their top four aspirations took a big hit at Saint Mary’s.


Martinez rued the early timing of the first own goal and believes it affected his side psychologically.


"It was a really difficult result to take," said Martinez. "The reality is to concede two own goals so early in the game made things nearly impossible.


"I did think that the second half we came out with a good attitude and good bravery but we needed that goal.


"When you want to win so much, and you concede two own goals, I felt psychologically we lost a bit of confidence and our normal arrogance in our play."


The match could have turned had the Merseyside club been awarded a penalty in the second half when Osman went down in the box under a Dejan Lovren challenge.


The penalty was not awarded and Martinez felt that luck wasn’t with his side as they lost a step on Arsenal in the race for fourth.


"We needed that goal," Martinez continued. "We had a couple of chances for Lukaku in the second half and for me it was a penalty on Leon Osman,” added the 40-year-old.


"There were key moments when we needed that little bit of luck. It could have been a different ending if we had got that goal."
