Spurs head coach Antonio Conte: “For sure, we have to be disappointed. They were good but I think we made many, many mistakes, especially with the ball, and I think this type of situation creates a bit of mental instability in my team. In the second half, then, we started to play, we started to press in the right way, and then we created chances to score.
Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl:
“Unbelievable game. I’m here now for three years – I think this was by far the best performance we have shown. The first half was unbelievable. We would score normally three or four goals. It’s a pity we only scored once. The game plan from every player was brought 100 percent onto the pitch.”
