Ralph Hasenhuttl: New Southampton manager is just like Liverpool's Jurgen Klopp - pundit

The Austrian has been appointed St Mary's manager on a two-and-a-half year deal, replacing Mark Hughes.

"It's a big challenge, but also the logical next step in my career".

The club confirmed former goalkeeper Kelvin Davies, who takes charge of the match at Spurs, will work as an assistant to Hasenhuttl, who led RB Leipzig to second place in the 2016-17 campaign - their first season in Germany's top flight.

He has not spoken to Liverpool's Guinean star Keita, saying: 'I'm not so good in French and he is not good in German and English!

Referee Moss signalled advantage despite the situation looking under control, until Vestergaard stumbled over the ball to allow the Scottish forward to go clear through on goal and beat McCarthy with a shot that dribbled over the line.

Neil Warnock believes the upturn in results is the sign of a team becoming increasingly comfortable in the Premier League.

"In the same way I try to understand, it was a tough evening, hard to play the three emotional games we played last week, you play, it is not easy to feel fresh in your legs or your mind".

His latest, a questionable hit on New Jersey's Brett Seney on November 30, earned Wilson a match penalty but no suspension. The hit caught Wilson off-guard and knocked him down causing his head to hit the ice violently.

Hasenhuttl's first team selection for the Saints is unlikely to include captain Ryan Bertrand as he is a doubt after missing the mid-week defeat to Tottenham, BBC Sport understands.

As a player dealing with a new manager you have to be open. "The near future has to be move as quickly as we can out of the (relegation) zone", the Austrian said.

"I want to put my footsteps in the snow here", Hasenhuttl, who guided Inglostadt to promotion from the second tier before taking over at Leipzig, told the media.

"The first target is to get out of this relegation zone".

"We have a lot of games and my football is all about training sessions, working on habits".

'I know the league now. Now we need to look at the guys and see how they compare'.

Krueger said Hasenhuttl represented an ideal match for the club. It's a bit back to the roots for me, a year ago was maybe easier because I had a fantastic Champions League team, and we were on a very high level tactically. "That's how I want to work until January".
