Southampton 1-0 West Brom

Sofiane Boufal was the match winner for Saints as he scored a wonder goal six minutes from time to help see off West Brom at St Mary's.

Mauricio Pellegrino: “In the Premier League, to make this difference is not easy.

“I’m really happy because I think we deserved to win.

“We created chances and controlled the opponent until the second half when they changed to five defenders with two strikers.

“In that moment we struggled. Our reaction at the end changed the game, but I thought we deserved the goal a little bit earlier.

“We put them under pressure from the beginning, we played well and we created chances.”


Sofiane Boufal: “When I went past one or two players I felt confident, and the rest of it just felt natural.

“I’m so happy with this goal – for my family and all the people who have helped me in the difficult moments.

“It’s football. Sometimes you have good moments and sometimes you have bad moments, but the most important thing is to be confident in yourself.

“I hope the best is still to come. I hope this goal will help me for the future with Southampton.

“When I scored an amazing goal against Sunderland, I didn’t score for a lot of weeks after.

“I just want to think about the future and work hard. It’s very important to work harder in the difficult moments.”
