Koeman: Southampton Should Have Scored More

share on:

Southampton manager, Ronald Koeman has praised his men after their resounding 4-0 victory over Arsenal.

Southampton ended their run of five games without a win, after a brace from Shane Long, with goals from Cuco Martina and Jose Fonte completing the riot.

Koeman, is glad with the result and is certain more goals could have gone in.

“It was a fantastic performance against a good Arsenal team – that’s a big compliment to the players,” the Dutchman told BT Sport.

“We caused them lots of problems up front through [Sadio] Mane and Long. It was a perfect performance.

“Normally I keep criticism of my players inside but sometimes people need to know what the manager is thinking.

“We showed fantastic belief in everybody and showed how good we are if we play at our level.

“The second half was far better than the first, some good goals and maybe more chances to score more.”

Saints remain 12th in the table and can move into the top half with victory over West Ham on Monday.

After ending a run of just one point from five games, skipper Fonte added: “It was imperative that we had a reaction and we showed passion and togetherness to change the bad run we were on.

“I’m very happy with our performance and the result.”
