“I gave Oxlaide-Chamberlain his debut at 16 at Southampton.

“He deserved his little chance and he was involved in the goal. He passed the ball to Marveaux and it was a very simple pass.
“In his mind it will be the greatest pass he’s ever played in his career.
“But he will play a lot better ones than that.”
