‘We can’t let our heads drop, we have to push on’

Alex Iwobi on the charge at Southampton

After not losing for almost four months in all competitions, our unbeaten run came to a frustrating end at St Mary’s on Sunday afternoon.

After our defeat at Southampton, Alex Iwobi spoke to the media - and here’s what he said.

on the result...
I guess we weren't concentrating throughout the 90 minutes. We had spells where we weren't defending well as a group. It's something we have to dust ourselves down from and keep on going. We can't let our heads drop from this defeat, we just have to push on to the next match.

on Southampton...
Of course, they deserve some credit. They had a gameplan and they stuck to it and did well against us. But it's disappointing from us and we have to keep going again.

on the end of the unbeaten run and what his feelings are...
Frustration that it's over. We had a lot of chances to win this game, I believe. But we have to give ourselves a bit of credit that we were able to go on this unbeaten run and now we have to start over again.

on how we react to this defeat...
We have to react well, we have to keep on going. It's a bit unfortunate that there were a couple of injuries but we have to keep on going and keep on fighting throughout the season.
