Southampton boss Hasenhuttl convinced of goals tonight against Aston Villa

Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl is eager for a different performance at Aston Villa tonight after last season’s 4-0 drubbing.

Much has changed since Saints last visited Aston Villa and Hasenhuttl is relishing the opportunity to show that this truly is a new team with a new backbone of belief.

“It is a good chance to show a different face there,” Hasenhuttl said when asked about the return to Villa Park on Friday night.

“I always like to go that way, to be honest.

“The years before we had massive games there, we have won 3-1, 4-3, something like that. It was really good games, one of our best away games every year.”
