"We left everything on the pitch. There are no regrets. We are disappointing and sad.

"We deserved it the same way Liverpool deserved it. We couldn't get it for the second time in a row now, not even the second time vs Liverpool with the Carabao and FA but also second time after Leicester. It hurts."


He also said that he and the team will learn from the loss on Saturday in the hopes of strengthening in the future.

"Always. Every experience helps. Like it or not. You always learn. You like to be on the winning side.

"We did everything in Carabao Cup and FA Cup to be the deserved winners, especially the two fantastic finals. That's it. Like it or not, we need to play again on Thursday and secure our goals in Premier League."
