Koeman praises Saints full-backs

Ryan Bertrand and Nathaniel Clyne can add a vital extra goal threat to Southampton's expansive attacking style, according to Ronald Koeman.

Bertrand fired his first Southampton goal in Saturday's 2-1 home victory over QPR, after Clyne struck the winner in Tuesday's 2-1 Capital One Cup triumph at Arsenal.

England full-back Bertrand has a Champions League winners' medal and is still a Chelsea player, but is now on his ninth loan stint from the Blues.

I'm very happy about him, because if you play for Chelsea then you have real qualities.

He has adapted to our way of playing extremely quickly and to the ambition of the club.

Clyne scored on Tuesday, Ryan has scored too and that's important for the team.

We can't just rely on the attackers for goals, we need more from across the pitch.

We have different players who have scored this season and that makes the team strong.

– Southampton boss Ronald Koeman.

Nolan: Goal should have stood

Kevin Nolan accused assistant referee Andrew Garratt of taking a guess on the decision that prevented West Ham from taking a valuable point at Manchester United.

Nolan thought he had grabbed a 2-2 draw for West Ham when he tapped in Carl Jenkinson's cross in the final minute at Old Trafford, but Garratt flagged for offside and referee Lee Mason disallowed the goal.

Hammers boss Sam Allardyce was fuming at the officials over the decision after the 2-1 defeat and his captain was also unhappy with the call, which came at the end of a dramatic match in which Wayne Rooney was sent off.

Nolan, who came on in the second half, thinks Garratt could not have known whether he was offside as he was not up with play.

I couldn't believe it. I put the ball in, started celebrating and then I saw the flag. I know he has definitely gambled on it because he can't have seen it, because if he had seen it he wouldn't have given it offside.
