Antonio Conte's team travel to Anfield on Tuesday and it has fast become a game that could end up defining Liverpool's season.
"No, I don't feel that they let me down or something", he said.
"The handball was clear".
"I used to think that if they got an injury to Diego Costa they could have a wobble, but the form of Eden Hazard, Pedro and the supporting cast is all back".
Speaking ahead of his side's showdown with Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday in the FA Cup fourth round, the Reds boss was asked about comments he made regarding the elements following the 1-0 loss to Saints at Anfield.
He added: "We caused ourselves problems again - especially the first goal which we could have defended better".
Not for the first time in recent weeks, Liverpool failed to register a single shot on target in the first half and were restricted to a couple of wayward strikes from Lucas Leiva and Roberto Firmino.
"We made a lot of changes, majority because we couldn't do differently, a few because we wanted", added Klopp.
"It was hard to handle". You saw one or two balls when the ball stopped in a moment when nobody knew about it.

It will be the first Grand Slam final meeting between the two since Serena beat Venus at Wimbledon in 2009. I've been fortunate enough to play good defense and have good movement around the court.
Liverpool and their manager Jurgen Klopp put the ball on the penalty spot for Neville today and he duly converted.
It has become a crucial time for Liverpool and only wins in their upcoming games will be good enough.
As usual, Twitter had plenty to say about the result. We are out and we have to accept it.
The home side may well opt to make some changes of their own, having played late on Wednesday before an early Saturday kick off, but I have no doubts that they will be keen on fielding a strong side against us with a comfortable mid-table finish in the league looking likely. We've got Liverpool, then Barnsley and Burton and the league is always your biggest thing because we're trying to get out of the league.
"We know what we want to do, we know what we have to do and we know about the football we want to play, so that's all good".

"It's a massive thing for a club like Southampton to get to a final and for us players it doesn't come round too often to get that silverware to look back on your career and show off", said the Republic of Ireland worldwide, who scored the added-time goal at Anfield which secured their Wembley place.
"It's not finished now".
"If you don't want to play in these games, Stoke away and Liverpool away, then there's something wrong with you".
