Sunderland defender Carlos Cuellar admits he had possibly his worst game for the club in the defeat at Aston Villa.
Cuellar appeared to be to blame for two of Villa's goals and then managed to deflect a shot past his own keeper, but the Spanish defender says he has been his own worst critic since the defeat.
"It was all the more painful for me, because it was against my old club and it was my first time back playing at Villa Park," Cuellar told the Echo.
"I wanted to play well, I wanted to win, and I wanted to show everyone how much it meant to me.
"In the first half, I think I did OK, but, in the second half, I don't know what happened - everything I tried went wrong. We went in at half-time at 2-1, and we were still in the game and felt that we could get something out of it.
"But in the second half, as a team, everything we tried to do backfired.
"We worked all week to prepare, but we are only human and we made mistakes."
Cuellar will be hoping he can put the game behind him when he takes to the field on Monday for the clash with Stoke.
