Speaking to the Southern Daily Echo, Hasenhuttl revealed that the subs were a key factor in the victory.

“I think it was the best second half since I am here.”

“We made two not unimportant substitutions in the break.”

“The thing was that we were only one down and that gave us the chance to change a few things and to force a little bit of nervousness and get them out of the comfort zone they had been in in the first half because they were amazing.”

“Tottenham showed in the first half how you have to play against an early counter pressing situation with one touch out of the pressure and I think it was too good for us.”

“Maybe we were not sharp enough and that was what I wanted to change at half time.”

“With Long and Sims I brought on two strikers with more speed to create more attacking situations and to bring them a little bit on the back foot.”

“It went perfect because Sims made a perfect job.”

“It was his first game (under me). We had a meeting and I told him what to do, he was not nervous or something like that. He wanted to show up and Long the same.”

“We then had more pressure on them, were creating more chances and scored two fantastic goals.”

Players from Serie A who Saints should consider signing this summer.
Southampton face a massive first summer transfer window under Ralph Hasenhuttl. The club appear to be heading for Premier League safety, but with eight games of the season remaining, there is still plenty to play for. Saints will undoubtedly benefit from a full pre-season under the Austrian, but he requires fresh recruits to strengthen the playing squad ahead of his first full campaign as the manager.
