A tough afternoon

"Southampton were exactly what we expected. They're a team full of quality and going very well. We knew the challenges we were going to face.

"The only disappointing thing is the way we started the game. Second half was more like us without creating massive chances.

"They could control the game a little bit more. It was a tough afternoon for the boys.

"We either feel sorry for ourselves and don't do anything about it or we meet the challenges.

"We should never be OK with losing 2-0 to Southampton because we want a competitive environment.

"You either meet the challenge head on or you back off. I would rather go and be pro-active. If you're going to lose, lose being the best version of yourself.

"The challenge was to go and win the second half and we possibly could have done."
