- Harry Maguire reflected fondly on his match-winning strike against Southampton
- The Foxes secured a 2-1 triumph at St. Mary’s Stadium, with Demarai Gray also on the scoresheet
- Maguire believes City are an ambitious and spirited side
“I don’t often score goals that aren’t with my head,” joked Maguire at the full-time whistle.
“It fell to be nicely and opened up so I took a good touch and managed to get a clean strike on the ball and it found the back of the net.
“A last-minute winner in front of the away fans – there’s nothing better.
Maguire Hails Team Spirit
Harry Maguire gives his post-match reaction following his late winner against Southampton.
“We’ve got a great spirit amongst the lads. We’ve got an ambitious squad, we want to push on as high as we can. We weren’t really happy with our first-half performance.
“We felt like they were dominating the game. The second half was a lot more like ourselves. We played with much more tempo.
“We created chance after chance and there only looked like one team that was going to win the game and thankfully I got the goal and we take the three points back.”
Maguire was happy his side was able to capitalise on their one-man advantage following Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg’s late dismissal at St. Mary’s Stadium.
“When a team goes down to 10 men it makes you go and attack the game, push bodies forward and create extra numbers,” he added.
“That’s what the boss wants, a defender to step in and try and play. If they had 11 men I probably wouldn’t have found myself in that position.
“It was nice that it found the back of the net.”
