Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl has revealed he is proud of his team’s performance against Chelsea in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday night.
The Blues required penalties to see off Southampton after Che Adams’ tap-in cancelled out Kai Havertz’s 44th-minute opener.
“It was a superb intense game and we had five subs which was perfect. It gave us the chance to get to penalties,” he said.
“We have done everything we could today and it was a fantastic game to watch for everybody in the stadium.
“It was a thriller and a typical cup tie. We wanted to give them a tough evening and we did, I think. It is a pity we couldn’t take the win but I am very proud of my team. Everyone did a fantastic job.”
