Leicester City 1 vs 2 Southampton highlights 11.1

Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl: "You could feel in every second of the game that we could win today. So to come back from behind one down with the history of the first game - it was so intense.

"It was a very important game for us this season to see how we play now - we have changed our mindset and worked to hard to play in a successful way. Watching this team is enjoyable at the moment."

Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers: "The performance probably didn't merit anything from the game. The players kept going right to the end and kept fighting.

"We didn't press the game strong enough, or well enough, and then when we had the ball, we made too many mistakes when we had the ball.

"So, it looked like up until the end, it was going to be a draw, which we would have taken because we didn't play well. "However, they played through our midfield too easily and then they get in and get the goal, so a disappointing result for us."

Southampton striker Danny Ings on BBC Match of the Day: "I am just happy to be scoring goals for the team. You saw today, the team do their best to provide the chances, they work so hard behind me I feel there is a little bit more pressure to put them away.

"After hitting the bar twice I thought maybe it wasn't my day but we all stuck in there and I thought we deserved to win. How we have been over Christmas and since then has been massive for us and the club moving forward and long may it continue.

"It speaks for itself, the work we do on the pitch, we did everything we could at that time to turn it round [after the 9-0 defeat to Leicester], it couldn't have gone any better than that. I'm so proud of us as a team and how far we have come."
