Oriol Romeu says Southampton will give everything at Anfield to make the EFL Cup final, after a 1-0 victory at St Mary’s in the first leg.

A solitary strike from Nathan Redmond proved the difference between the two sides, as Saints got back to winning ways with a performance full of desire and determination.

Romeu reflected: “It was very good. We were coming from a difficult moment and we know that in a season there will be ups and downs but we wanted to come back stronger.

“It was a great performance from the team, all together working hard for 90 minutes and it’s good to have this kind of performance back. We need to keep building on this.

“We had a clean sheet against one of the best offensive teams in this country so it’s very good and it’s not all about what we’ve done today, now we need to keep going and doing the same.”

Looking ahead to the second leg at Anfield, Romeu added: “It’s going to be tough. It’s a lovely stadium and they’re going to push but we have to be ready.

“We know it’s one step to get there, to play a final for this club which would be amazing for us, for the fans, for everyone.

“We’ll give everything at Anfield to go through!”
