The German midfielder was desperately disappointed after our 2-1 defeat at Blackburn Rovers last weekend.
“I don’t like to look back too much,” he admitted. “But if you look at it, we could have won our first two games.
“We could have won against Aston Villa and without two red cards we could have won at Everton. It is easy to think like that.
“But we have two points and we have to realise that. If we work hard in training and we concentrate for the next game we can come back.”
Steffen knows all about how important our next game is — Glenn Hoddle’s former club Southampton arrive at the Lane on Sunday September 9.
“It is important but that pressure is not so good,” he insisted. “We have to enjoy it and we don’t need the pressure of having to win. That is not the right way. Enjoy it and I know we can beat Southampton.
“It is almost two weeks away though, there are a lot of international games before so it would be better to speak nearer the time.”
Steffen Freund feels we are better than our two-point haul in the Premiership suggests — but would rather look forward than think about what might have been.
