Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl was left frustrated by the manner of Brighton's late equaliser for their 1-1 draw.

Hasenhüttl was unhappy because Alex McCarthy was injured, meaning James Ward-Prowse dropped back to protect his goalkeeper, thus playing Neal Maupay onside.

“I think it is ok when we sometimes concede a goal – we have had three 1-0 wins at home – but the way we conceded is hard to accept, because it was definitely easy to defend this situation," he said.

“We had another sub to do. Raise the arm and you can be changed or subbed, and if not you have to be able to defend your goal alone, not with your No 6 needed on the line.

“We dropped him (Ward-Prowse), and then the rebound is not offside, and that's the reason why he scores. This is very, very hard to take."
