Højbjerg: Liverpool the best I've faced

By SFC Media Sun 20 Nov Saints vs Liverpool

Pierre-Emile Højbjerg reflected on Southampton's draw with Liverpool, and declared the Reds as the best team he has ever faced.

The midfielder was delighted to have held the Premier League leaders to a 0-0 stalemate at St Mary's, and it was an achievement he was even more pleased with given the quality of the opposition.

"It's not only that they move the ball quickly," said Højbjerg. "They also have fast players, and with the ball they are very good one against one.

"I played in Germany against Bayern Munich and Dortmund, I played against Manchester City in the Champions League, but I must say this is maybe the best team I have ever played against.

"It's unbelievable how they move, how they stand, how they work together – it's like a symphony.

"We should be happy with the one point, but it's not that I say this is not our level. We can come up here and we have something to say up here and we showed that today."

Højbjerg added: "As always, the best is to win, but against a fantastic team like Liverpool you have to realise that a point is a fantastic result.

"They have a fantastic team and I must say the tempo of the game was unbelievably high, but with the support of the fans, with the bravery of the team and the good spirit we had a solid performance and that's what it's all about."
