Reaction from Southampton’s Gavin Bazunu

Southampton goalkeeper Gavin Bazunu also gave Sky Sports his post-match thoughts saying: “It’s massive. For the whole team. We’ve worked so hard under the new manager on being hard to beat. We need to be a hard team to play against.

“We’ve been working on [defending] for the last few weeks. The players in front of me have been amazing.

“On the back of the last two results we can take momentum into the game on Saturday.”

Reaction from James Ward-Prowse

Southampton captain James Ward-Prowse spoke to Sky Sports following his team’s impressive victory over Manchester City saying:

“A special night. These games are special to play in especially when you’re struggling in the league. We knew this was a distraction from the league and a great showcase. We showed no fear.

“It’s always tough when you’re in the position we are. The manager has been excellent and has given us fresh ideas and new energy. He wanted us to be bold and aggressive.

“We have been guilty in the past of having a result at half-time and dropping off. We showed a different part of our game. We thoroughly deserved the win.”

On taking this into the league: “That’s the challenge now. To put in a performance like that means nothing if we don’t get anything from Everton.”
