Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson: "It was always going to be a tough opening fixture for us, but I am really pleased with how we approached it.
"I have to take my hat off to our goalkeeper for making a fantastic save, but I am very happy to get off to a good start against a team like Southampton with such good quality."
Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl: "When you don't score, you don't deserve anything. We had some chances yes, but the goalkeeper made a few saves."
On the referee downgrading Kyle Walker-Peters' red card: "The first good thing was the speeding up and it is good to use more often the screen. It was the right thing to do and also brave to say no red card and a yellow."
