Southampton secured their tenth point since the Premier League restart following a competitive 1-1 draw with Everton at Goodison Park, where Danny Ings netted his 19th goal of the season.

Ralph Hasenhüttl was pleased with the overall performance, despite settling for a draw, but did think that if Saints had utilised their recent clinical edge the result could have been different.

Up next is a trip to Old Trafford, where Saints go in search of a ninth away win of the campaign.

"I think we could have killed the game in the first half," the manager reflected. "If we were a little bit more clinical in the finish.

"Last game we gave 26 chances away, this game was two or three and you concede a goal.

I think we could have killed the game in the first half.

"I didn't think we played like the away team. In possession we played a very grown up game and this was, for me, a good signal.

"We also changed the shape, it was tactically demanding today. In the end we had good organisation on the pitch and I had always the feeling that we had control over the game. We had better chances than the opponent.

"Normally Prowsey is a very safe penalty shooter. We have a clear ranking. I think as long as Ingsy scores the goals in the games he is happy, and if we can win we are happy."
