Mauricio Pellegrino wants video technology to be introduced in the Premier League after Abdoulaye Doucoure’s controversial last-gasp equaliser denied Southampton a first win in 10 matches.

The midfielder diverted the ball in with his arm a minute before full-time as Watford came from two goals down to snatch a 2-2 draw.

James Ward-Prowse had scored twice in the first half before Andre Gray pulled one back – and Saints were crestfallen when Doucoure’s equaliser was allowed to stand.

Asked whether he felt his team were robbed, the Saints boss said: “Yes, I think so.

“I think we controlled [the game] well. I don’t remember too many actual, clear chances [for them] to score.

“We are a little bit sad for many reasons.

“The technology helps every single sport, why not in football?”

Southampton protested long and hard to referee Roger East but to no avail, with a draw leaving them just one point above the relegation zone.
