The visitors' Ruben Neves converted a contested penalty that transformed Sunday's south coast clash, after Ryan Bertrand had been punished for a debatable handball.

Nelson Semedo's rasping effort struck Bertrand's hand as his back was turned attempting a block at point-blank range, but still the penalty was awarded.

Neves' fourth league goal of the season cancelled out Danny Ings' stunning first-half volley, floored the furious Saints and set Wolves en route to a first win in three matches.

Pedro Neto pirouetted around Jannik Vestergaard before slotting home the winner, to condemn Saints to a sixth straight Premier League loss.

The Midlanders' win saw Wolves jump over Southampton into 12th place in the league table, with clashes against Leeds, Newcastle and Aston Villa to come.

Hasenhuttl was particularly incensed about Wolves' penalty, launching an extended tirade at the fourth official.

The taskmaster Austrian had hoped the cup win at Wolves would prove the catalyst for a return to league form, but instead Saints' wait to put that 9-0 hammering at Manchester United fully to bed goes on.
