Fraser Forster was delighted to make a pivotal contribution to Southampton's 0-0 draw at Liverpool, but the keeper was quick to push the praise towards his teammates after the match.

Forster's second-half penalty save from James Milner, after Jack Stephens was judged to have handled in the area, proved to be the key moment of the match, as Saints earned a point at Anfield, while the England international also made a number of other good stops.

While he was pleased to have a big influence on the outcome, Forster said the players ahead of him deserved great credit.

"The lads in front of me were fantastic and really limited the chances," he said. "It was nice to make the save and nice to keep a clean sheet, which is a good foundation moving forward."

Forster knows Milner well from their time together with England, while they were previously at Newcastle at the same time, but he admitted he didn't really have any inside knowledge about where the Liverpool player was going to go with his spot kick.

"I think if you look at his record he goes left, right, down the middle, but fortunately I guessed right today and made the save," he said.

Forster added: "We're obviously delighted. It's always a tough place to come and we had to battle very hard for that point.

"I think as a team we were very strong and compact and made it hard for them to get through us. It was a fantastic team performance and a good point away from home."
