Managers Reaction 

Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl: ”Overall, the game was decided by the first goal. It was a questionable one and changed the momentum of the game completely. When you have the ball, you’re meant to get it back, but in a way where you can actually do something with it – not with the long ball and Vardy immediately pressing. What is that! We had the chance to end up higher, but in the end, we were struggling to get through trials as there were many things going against us.”

Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers: ”I thought it was a little confusing to myself, to be honest. The players obviously thought that John [Moss] has given us a free kick. It should be played back to Kasper – he’s played a direct ball through. Their center-half made a mistake and if he heads it back, there’s no drama. But he’s made a mistake and we capitalized on it. Overall it seemed a little confusing, hence the players were unsure of what the decision was.”
