Forster: Spirits still high

Saints are still in third place in the Premier League following defeats to Manchester City and Arsenal, and Forster is confident the togetherness of the squad will help Ronald Koeman’s side respond when they face Manchester United on Monday night, live on Sky.

The England stopper said of the defeat at Emirates Stadium: “It was very disappointing, but we take the positives and we move on.

“They’ve got top quality players. From back to front we worked hard and all??did our best for the team, but were probably just missing that little bit of??luck that you need in football.

“Obviously, it was cruel to concede late on, but there was a lot we could take??from the game and if we play like that on Monday night at home it will be a very??good game.

“We’ll be full of confidence. We can take so many positives from the game at Arsenal and if we can play like that against a lot of teams we will pick up points.

“It’s just important we believe in ourselves. The manager does.

“We’re so together as a club that it’s frightening. It’s just important that??we hold our heads up high and move on.”
