Tottenham 3-1 Southampton: Premier League - Player Ratings

Mark Hughes was dismissed following the 2-2 draw against Manchester United, which left the club in 18th place in the Premier League, and Hasenhuttl will officially begin the role on Thursday, the day after Southampton's clash at Tottenham.

Southampton have confirmed the appointment of Ralph Hasenhuttl as their new manager.

The first hour will have been extremely uncomfortable viewing as Spurs threatened to run riot, leading 3-0 through goals from Harry Kane, Lucas Moura and Heung-Min Son, before the Saints produced a spirited response, with Charlie Austin bagging a late consolation. It showed me the relationship is good, but they have to accept another style of footballIt is a results business and we have to get them as soon as possible.

He added: "What we have to do is try and work out a formula where we take our chances away from home and try and defend better".

"I'm delighted to be back in the team and to get the three points".

Spurs will travel to Leicester City on Sunday morning (Singapore time). Danish midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg saw one stunning effort pushed on to the post by Lloris before Nathan Redmond saw his deflected shot come off the bar.

Southampton's next fixture is at relegation rivals Cardiff.

"At first I think the squad is very big so we have a lot of positions where we have too many players and maybe one or the other is leaving us and we bring something new". If we do that we can have a fantastic time together.

Warnock was delighted with Paterson's contribution, but also credited referee Moss who waved play on after Oriol Romeu clattered into Victor Camarasa just seconds before the goal.

Southampton are now 13 games without a win in all competitions, their worst winless run since 1998, and have won just four of their last 40 Premier League fixtures.

Southampton have won just nine points from their opening 15 games this season.

Southampton chairman Ralph Krueger said: "The urgency to find a path back to our potential and to the results that we expect can not be underestimated".
