Kyle Walker-Peters spoke of the importance of Southampton not dwelling on the disappointment of being beaten by Newcastle, as they look to quickly return to winning ways against Watford on Sunday.

The 2-1 defeat to the resurgent Magpies marked only a second loss at home this season, a record all the more impressive considering we are now approaching the run-in, and Walker-Peters felt Saints were a little unfortunate to have been on the wrong end of the result.

"Really disappointed to end that run we had at home," he said. "I think we haven't lost since September, but that's the Premier League. Newcastle are on a really good run, and they had two big chances today which they took.

"I think we had opportunities to win the game, and I think two or three weeks ago we take the chances we had, but that's the moment we're in and the phase we're in at the moment and we need to put it right on Sunday.

"I think we had the chances to win it, but we weren't clinical enough and on the defensive side we need to be a bit more solid. Both goals are a bit soft, but we can react on Sunday and hopefully we can put it right.

"I think we need to not get too low. Obviously be disappointed now, but tomorrow a clean slate and we go again on Sunday, because the games are coming fast and we want to climb as high as we can in the table.

"That's the beauty of football, the games come quick and on Sunday we could all be talking about how well we played and we get a win, so that's what we're going to focus on. This game's done now, we'll review it tomorrow and put it right on Sunday."
