Adams: It was instinctive | Southampton FC

    Ché Adams is proud to have broken his Southampton duck with a 40-yard strike which sealed three points against Manchester City.

    The striker was on hand to collect an interception by Stuart Armstrong and without a thought lobbed a shot over City keeper Ederson who was stranded.

    Adams, who signed in the summer from Birmingham City, was handed a starting place by Ralph Hasenhüttl and rewarded the manager with the only goal of the game in the first half.

    Speaking about the goal, he said: “Obviously I’m buzzing, all the lads have helped me along the way. Everyone has kept faith in me including the fans, the staff, the players so I’m just delighted.

    “It was instinctive like you said but we know Man City are a high (defensive line) team, they like to keep high and the goalkeeper so when the opportunity came up, I just took it.

    “We’ve been working in training; they keep a high line and a high keeper. Obviously, the press got us into that situation so when it came, I took it.

    “There was no hesitation at all if I’m honest. As soon as I looked up I knew what I was going to do. I thought it was going to go over but all that mattered is that we got the three points.”

    The 23-year-old has been patience to get his first goal but has always had the backing of his team-mates which was shown in the celebrations, Adams said: “It means the world to me (the players celebrating together). It’s been a hard couple of months, but we got there today.

    “Obviously from last week (chance against Watford) the lads were on their knees begging me to score but it went in this week and it’s paid off.

    “It’s been a season of learning with the strikers that are up there. It’s hard to get a place but we just keep working everyday and slowly and gradually we’ll get there.”
