Sheffield United 1-0 Southampton: 'Difficult' loss displeases Koeman

Southampton manager Ronald Koeman is critical of his side after their "difficult" 1-0 League Cup quarter-final defeat by Sheffield United at Bramall Lane.

Sheffield United striker Marc McNulty's second-half goal was enough to send the Blades into the last four and inflict on Saints a fifth consecutive defeat.

Blades boss Nigel Clough says his side "outplayed" Southampton in what he describes as a "superb" evening for the club.
