Southampton manager admits he has mixed emotions after his team’s draw against Manchester United on Saturday.

The Saints dropped two points at home in a disappointing manner, after seeing a two-goal lead slip away, after an impressive first 30 minutes.

“I suppose given we had gone into a 2-0 lead it was a little bit amiss of us to allow that to be wiped away, especially in the first half, but overall we can’t be disappointed with the performance,” Hughes said, according to Daily Echo.

“I thought over the 90 minutes we were the side that created more chances and had more efforts on goal.”

“Clearly we need to defend those moments when United scored a lot better because that was a disappointment because we can be a lot better than we were but I thought we defended much better and in the manner, we needed to second half.”

“I never really thought we came under any constant or sustained pressure from Man United and I think that’s credit to us and the way we played and we were always prepared to go the other way and ask questions in the opposition half.”

“Overall disappointed because we were 2-0 to the good but we can’t be disappointed with the performance. The guys gave me everything.”
