Southampton striker Armstrong delighted being matchwinner against Aston Villa

Southampton striker Adam Armstrong was delighted to prove the matchwinner against Aston Villa on Friday night.

Armstrong struck the only goal of the game early on.

He later said: "Quality. We knew we had to come into this game and I had to show I could score goals, we could have had more. To get the three points is amazing.

"It dropped nicely. I should have had a few goals last week and I had to stay positive. I hit it nicely.

"My first goal at home, a nice feeling and the fans were brilliant.

"No pressure for me, I know I can score goals, I have had chances and as a striker that is football. You cannot be too down on yourself.

"It has been good, tough in the Premier League, the best league in the world and hopefully more goals to come.

"The table looks nice, we needed to get three points before the international break. It is massive, a big three points where we are in the table."
