Southampton - Southampton
match-winner Nathan Redmond felt he should have scored more than just
one goal in Wednesday's EFL Cup semi-final first-leg clash with
Liverpool at St Mary's.
The pacy winger proved to be a real thorn in the side of Liverpool's
defence, but failed to add to his 20th-minute goal as the Reds survived
the first-leg tie with just a one-goal deficit.
Nonetheless, he had plenty of positives to take away from the performance of the Saints.
"I should have had four today, on another day they might go in," Redmond told Sky Sports. "We got the win in the first leg so we take it on to the second leg."
The former Norwich City player was also quizzed over which of his missed chances he regretted the most.
"The first one and the last one," he said. "The last one I tried to be a bit too smart and just chip it over.
"I'll take those mistakes and try to put it right in training and the next game.
"We got a clean sheet and a win in the first leg so we'll take that on to the second.
"It's credit to the whole team, we've got to work hard for each other and we did that today."
Saints centre-back Virgil van Dijk, who wore the captain's armband on the night, echoed the sentiments of his team-mate.
Van Dijk said: "We won today and kept the clean sheet which is the most important thing.
"We played some good football at times, obviously Liverpool are a
great team. We were good on the ball as well. It was a great team
"It's all about communication. They have a lot of movement up front
and a lot of running so we really talked to each other and I think we
did it really well and it's a good win to go to Anfield."
The Saints next travel to Turf Moor on Saturday where they will face a struggling Burnley side looking to avoid relegation.
Kick off is at 17:00.
