  • Spurs recover to sink Saints

Spurs responded with a 3-1 victory over rudderless Southampton at Wembley on Wednesday night courtesy of goals from Kane, Lucas Moura and Son Heung-min to hoist themselves back into third place.

Southampton face two pivotal away battles in the early relegation stakes by facing first Cardiff on Saturday then Huddersfield on December 22.

Asked about his nickname and comparisons with Klopp, Hasenhuttl replied: "I have heard about it". This will be Ralph Hasenhuttl's first game at the helm for the Saints. "I want to be my own character".

But the 51-year-old admitted it was not a test that frightened him.

"As soon as we met, Ralph's enthusiasm for football was contagious and his hunger to take on a new and challenging job in the Premier League was evident", said Krueger.

"We have a very good youth academy in this club and it's a goal for us to bring them forward again", said Hasenhuttl.

"When I left Leipzig I was thinking about my next step, and I want to stand in front of a new team, new language, to get developed personally and in my view of football, that's why I made the decision to come to Southampton".

Hasenhuttl revealed there was no contact from Arsenal in the summer after Arsene Wenger's departure, contrary to reports.

My name wasn't big enough for the top six clubs.

The former RB Leipzig boss replaces Mark Hughes, who was sacked on Monday with Saints 18th in the table.

He said: 'I want to put my footsteps in the snow here. I'm not frightened about it, but the problem at the moment is that we have a lot of games in the next few days. It's a bit back to the roots for me, previous year was maybe easier because I had a fantastic Champions League team, and we were on a very high level tactically.

"I've just been working hard on the training field to get myself injury free".

Pochettino's men were in no mood to let Southampton make it nervy for them and two goals in the opening 10 minutes of the second half killed the game.
