BBC Sport - Sunderland 0-1 Southampton: Saints were 'better team' - Koeman
Southampton were better team - Koeman
- From the section Football
Ronald Koeman says that "the best team won" after Southampton beat Sunderland 1-0 at the Stadium of Light.
Koeman's side bettered the exchanges against Sunderland as both Jose Fonte and Steven Davis saw efforts cleared off the line, before Tadic struck a fourth league goal of the season from the penalty spot after Yann M'Vila had fouled Saints full-back Ryan Bertrand.
Adam Johnson forced a save in response, but Southampton held on to extend their unbeaten run in the Premier League to six games.
