Ralph Hasenhuttl Insists Southampton Need To Keep On Pushing

Ralph Hasenhuttl is pretty determined to dig up positive results and has called on all the Southampton players to keep up the hard work.

Southampton picked up a shocking win as they ended Arsenal’s unbeaten run in the Premier League. A brace from Danny Ings and a late Charlie Austin strike as Southampton registered only their second win in the top flight.

The win helped them in stepping out of the relegation zone and it was Hasenhuttl’s second game in charge with the first being a slender 1-0 defeat at the hands of Cardiff City.

The Austrian manager is known for his attacking intent and passing football has instructed his players to maintain the intensity in the next matches too. “I don’t want to pick one guy out because everyone was very focused and committed to the team. We want that kind of play, to attack together and be hunting the ball down.

“You could feel it from the first minute on and that starts from the front. Danny did this well and he invested so much that I think he deserved to score, which was fantastic for him to score two goals against Arsenal.

“It was intensive. It’s not easy to play against Arsenal. You put everything on the pitch that you have and you need a little luck also. We didn’t have all the ball possession, but I think we had more chances.

“We have to keep on working, looking at videos, working in our mind every week and hopefully we will be a in a good position.”
