Hasenhüttl: A deserved win

By SFC Media time Sun 04 Apr Saints v Burnley

Manager Ralph Hasenhüttl felt his side deserved their 3-2 win over Burnley after coming from two goals down to claim an important three points in the Premier League.

The hosts found themselves with a deficit to overturn after a Chris Wood penalty and Matej Vydra strike put the Clarets ahead, only for Stuart Armstrong and the returning Danny Ings to restore parity at the halfway stage.

Going on to dominate proceedings with no less than 24 shots, the comeback was eventually completed just past the hour mark when Nathan Redmond volleyed home to confirm the victory.

Commenting afterwards, the Saints boss said: “It was a tough fight today and, in the end, a deserved win.

You can see how much quality we have when we create so many chances.

“We didn’t have a very good start with the penalty and the second goal. Maybe the opponent was a bit too sure of the win, as then we were trying to do what we wanted to do from the beginning.

“You can see how much quality we have when we create so many chances against such a side that is normally defending very well and very deep.

“It’s not so easy to score and create in such a game but it was important that we did it in a fantastic way and this definitely gives us a boost.

“Today it’s fantastic to see and it’s always good when you work on things and see the result at the weekend.

“I must say we were good to watch and I always had the feeling that we could score and always had the feeling we could stretch them, and this is how we have to do it in the future also and then we are a good side.”
