Tottenham bounced back from their north London derby defeat to Arsenal with a 3-1 win against Southampton, giving new Saints boss Ralph Hasenhuttl his first look at the job that lies ahead. I don't like it so much.

None of Southampton's last seven managers have won their first game in charge, and if they are to turn their season around and climb up the table the Austrian will need to buck that trend.

"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".

'I can't guarantee you how many results we will earn for that.

"For that reason, we are extremely pleased that Ralph Hasenhuttl has agreed to become our new manager and do all he can to help guide us back on that path".

Spurs goalkeeper Loris somehow got his fingertips to a swerving effort from Pierre Hojbjerg and tipped it on to the post.

The French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe confirmed that the planned increases are no longer included in the 2019 budget. National police estimated the number of protesters in Paris on Saturday at 8,000, among 31,000 protesters nationwide.


Southampton's next fixture is at relegation rivals Cardiff.

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.

"In history there were a lot coming out from there and players coming out of the youth academy and that's the goal for the future and perform with these guys, develop and maybe one or the other can help us do it better in the Premier League". Tactically he was very aware, he set his teams out well, but I think being sacked by Man City knocked his confidence as he hasn't progressed since then, whereas when he came to City, people spoke about him being the next top manager.

Hasenhuttl may wish he had stayed away on Wednesday, as Southampton turned in the kind of error-strewn display that has blighted their season so far, conceding three soft goals and committing too many sloppy mistakes.

Tottenham playmaker Christian Eriksen has provided at least one assist in each of his last three Premier League games (four total), the first time he has done so within a single campaign since April 2016.

Club Ralph left in may of this year.
