Ralph Hasenhuttl the new Southampton boss watches the Spurs game

Tottenham bounced back from their derby defeat against Arsenal to sweep aside struggling Southampton 3-1 early yesterday night and show new Saints boss Ralph Hasenhuttl the size of the task he faces.

He has not spoken to Liverpool's Guinean star Keita, saying: 'I'm not so good in French and he is not good in German and English!

The Premier League match between Cardiff and Southampton will be broadcast online.

"In the same way I try to understand, it was a tough evening, hard to play the three emotional games we played last week, you play, it is not easy to feel fresh in your legs or your mind".

Klopp has also promised Hasenhuttl will bring "lively football" back to St Mary's while David Wagner, another pal of Hasenhuttl, says his teams are always built to entertain.

Hasenhuttl led former club RB Leipzig to a second-place finish in the Bundesliga in his first full season in charge, after taking over following their promotion from the second tier.

The new Southampton boss makes his Premier League bow in Cardiff against Warnock, a man who has overseen more than 1500 games on these shores. That's how I want to work at January and that's when we look. The step is not the easiest one, but I never want it easy in my life.

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

But Southampton fans should be fearful of one aspect of Hasenhuttl's managerial career. "The focus for the near future has to be to move as quickly as we can up the table", he said.

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

Hasenhuttl will be supported at Southampton by existing first-team assistant coach Kelvin Davis, who was in charge of the team against Tottenham, as well as head of goalkeeping Dave Watson and head of sports science Alek Gross. "It will be a hard-working way", Hasenhuttl said.

There was a spell there where you had Alan Pardew, Sam Allardyce and these people who got each other's job all the time, a job came up every couple of months and Big Sam would be in the frame.
