Managers Reaction 

Wolves manager Bruno Lage: “The most important thing is to complain about nothing and find solutions. In two or three weeks we are playing more games with the FA Cup. If you have more games then it’s harder to play. If you have players you need to continue to play. We have a lot of kids from the academy to play. I want to play and we are in a good moment. I don’t think about that (postponing). I put the kids in training a couple of times with us.”

Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl: “I don’t know if the better team has won but for sure the luckier team. We had the decisive moments in the game against us. Every time they (the referees) check (the monitor) they definitely change their opinion, otherwise, they wouldn’t tell him to go there. The referee did a fantastic job, he had a very difficult game under control.”
