(Reuters) - Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp admitted he was at a loss to explain his side's lacklustre performance during a 1-0 defeat to Southampton in the first leg of the League Cup semi-final on Wednesday. "I've tried (to explain the performance) in three or four interviews but I cannot," the Liverpool manager told reporters. Saints manager Claude Puel agreed with his German counterpart, indicating his side needed to be more clinical in front of goal. "In the end, we were unlucky and unhappy with the result because we know away at Liverpool will be very difficult, but it was a good performance from my team." Southampton, currently 10th in the league, visit Burnley on Saturday, while second-placed Liverpool face rivals Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday.
