Tottenham bounced back from their derby defeat against Arsenal to sweep aside struggling Southampton 3-1 yesterday morning (Singapore time), showing new Saints boss Ralph Hasenhuettl the size of the task he faces.

Spurs lost 4-2 at Emirates Stadium on Sunday but banished those memories with goals from Harry Kane, Lucas Moura and Son Heung-min inside 55 minutes to lift them above Chelsea to third in the Premier League.

"Last year I had a fantastic Champions League team, we were on a very high technical level".

I think Southampton saw how Leipzig had improved as a team under Hasenhuttl and while they did have money to spend, a lot of it was done to the coach and his ideas.

Former RB Leipzig coach Hasenhuttl ended his impressive spell with the German club in the summer.

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. That's how I want to work at January and that's when we look.

"Maybe this step isn't the easiest one, but I never wanted easy in my life". I always challenge myself.

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

"We met at the hotel after lunch, he was very concise with his information, very honest and to the point with what he wanted and how he wants to work", Davis said.

"We have a lot of games coming up and if you know my football it is about training sessions and habits so when you don't have the chance to train it can be hard to change things". If you have the chance to do that, okay.

Ralph Hasenhuttl says he takes charge of Southampton offering no guarantees.

He left Aalen after losing several key players, suggesting to Swabische that he could "not set new goals" with the club.

Pompey go in search of an eighth consecutive win in all competitions when they host Southend.

"In the second period our performance was better and better", Hasenhuttl said in quotes reported by the BBC. "I really believe that if we produce those opportunities again in three or four games' time then we'll get our rewards".
