Mourinho delighted with 5-2 win at Southampton

first_img “We know Southampton quite well – we played them four times last season, twice in the league and twice in the cup. [Former Southampton midfielder Pierre-Emile] Hojbjerg helped us to analyse and understand the way they play. We knew they risk a lot. “The full-backs leave a lot of space behind. By Harry Kane’s movement we killed them.
