Diego Llorente: We will try to get the three points

Defender on Southampton.

Leeds United defender Diego Llorente has spoken to the media ahead of Saturday’s Premier League trip to Southampton.

The Whites are looking for back-to-back wins in the top-flight, against the Saints, who the Whites did the double over last season.

Llorete began by reflecting on the previous game against Watford, in which his goal secured the Whites a one-nil victory.

“I think we deserved the first win,” said Llorente.

“In other games we were unlucky, for example against Newcastle United and West Ham, where the team did a great job, but the result was not as expected.

“Against Watford we deserved the win and I think we could have won by more than one goal, as we had a lot of opportunities.

“The important thing is the three points, so it was a good game and we have to keep going now.”

Ralph Hasenhuttl’s Southampton side are yet to win in the Premier League this season, but Llorente is expecting a far from easy game on the South Coast.

He said: “Southampton are a team with very good players.

“We will try and keep our style of play, but this team has good strikers and a good coach.

“We know it will be a difficult game, but we will try to get the three points.

“I remember the game well from last season, it was one of the first games back with fans.

“It’s a difficult stadium to play at, but hopefully it will be a good match for us.”
