Jurgen Klopp blamed Liverpool's 7-2 loss to Aston Villa to their failure to react after giving up the opening goal.
"All their good moments lead to a big chance or goals, and that makes all the difference. All the things you should not do in a football match we did tonight, but all credit to Aston Vila, as they forced us to do those things.
"The first goal had an impact but it shouldn't. We conceded goals like that in the past, but the reaction wasn't good, and we lost the plot," said Klopp.
Villa's opening goal came off a mistake from Adrian.
Klopp added that he's disappointed to not be able to work with the squad in training, with international matches coming up this week.
"Tonight wasn't sloppy, it was just bad. I have to admit that but I can't change it. I would love to have a training session tomorrow and Tuesday and to talk about it, but the boys go back off to international duty. Hopefully they come back healthy and we use the two days to prepare for Everton."
