RALPH Hasenhuttl lamented Saints' missed chances against Everton - but praised his side's performance at Goodison Park.

The visitors missed a penalty in the first half and also hit the crossbar before Danny Ings gave them the lead with his 19th top-flight goal of the season.

Everton's Richarlison then equalised just before the break for the hosts.

“The frustration is a little bit here because I think we played a good game, but this is football," reflected Hasenhuttl.

“In the last game we gave a lot of chances away to Man City and they didn’t score and today Everton had two and scored one.

“The whole performance was absolutely grown up and it was definitely a good away game from our side.

“We were calm in possession. In the second half Everton changed the shape and we had 15 minutes where we were struggling but we immediately found the right answers.

“We were very flexible, and it was a good performance.

“It was a pity that we didn’t win because we had the chances, especially in the first half.

“We had a penalty miss and also hit the crossbar. It was a little bit unlucky.

“In the end, we will take the point because we haven’t had so many draws this season.”
