After last weekend’s disappointing defeat at the hands of Chelsea, manager Ralph Hasenhüttl is looking for his side to show a response when Arsenal visit St Mary’s on Saturday.
The Gunners head to the south coast having suffered back-to-back Premier League defeats themselves, causing Hasenhüttl to emphasise the importance of an improved performance.
“We have to show on Saturday we have the answers, especially for how we want to defend. We have a strong opponent coming on the weekend and we want to show a different face.
“They have the same situation as we have now,” he continued. “They have lost twice and are trying to find answers.
“You see how tough it is, also for them. They have a different target, they want to come in the Champions League and have some injury problems now that they feel, I think, and still is a team that is also on the way up.
“They did a good job this season so far. A young team and as always with young teams, you see there are some ups and downs.
“For us it’s important to cause them some issues as if you don’t, then it’s easy for them to win games.”
