Burnley 1-1 Southampton

Manolo Gabbiadini came off the bench to score a 90th minute equaliser to rescue a point for Saints at Burnley in a 1-1 draw.

Reaction: 

Alex McCarthy: “Obviously coming away to Burnley we knew it was going to be a tough game, but to get the point in the end is massive.

“We haven’t had a lot of luck this season, but getting that bit of luck has obviously resulted in a goal for us.

“It wasn’t going to be a pretty game, but the boys stuck together and we got the point in the end.

“We’ve got great character in this group and a great squad with great players.

“The boys still think we could’ve done better out there – we know we can – but there are a lot of positives we can take into Stoke next week.”

Mauricio Pellegrino: "I think in the way that we equalised we can be happy because it was really difficult, after conceding against this side who don't concede too much themselves.

"But, obviously, we have to analyse well, because we have to improve in different aspects – how can we play against those teams who will press and are really aggressive physically, and who try to put you under pressure all the time?

"I think our concentration was good, and our intensity too, but I think we were a little bit nervous in some moments. When you don't want to take any risks sometimes the ball is always in the air and for us it was difficult to play.

"We had a couple of chances to equalise and at the end we got this goal that allowed us to get one point. It's not the best, but in this moment one point can be the big difference at the end."
