Managers Reaction 

Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl: “We had a lot of chances against an organized opponent. It was a tight game. We were able to adapt our game and have different behaviors. That slowed their game down and then we scored our goals. We found Angus Gunn was like a magnet today. We had a lot of shots but he was always there and we had to wait for an unbelievable strike from Oriol.”

Norwich boss Dean Smith: “It was a difficult night. In the first half, we gave the ball away too cheaply. We didn’t play with the quality we can. When you get 6/10s throughout the pitch you won’t win a game in the Premier League. We had to pin their center-backs and full-backs because they had too much ball in our half. We went two upfront to change it around. The subs made an impact. Southampton is a high pressing team and their numbers drop off. We knew we’d get some joy in the second half.”
