Ralph Hasenhüttl wants the Southampton fans to bring the same support they showed in the win over Tottenham Hotspur when they host Liverpool tonight.

Saints celebrated a memorable victory in their last game at St Mary's, as they came from behind late on to beat Spurs 2-1, and they are now looking to make it three Premier League wins in a row, as they face the title-challenging Reds.

they will have a good feeling to support us in the right moments, i'm sure.

There is a sold-out crowd for the highly-anticipated game, with flags set to be distributed to the home supporters, and Hasenhüttl knows what he wants sort of atmosphere to see from the Southampton fans.

"Not a big different one to the last games," he said. "Against Tottenham, they also had a very good feeling what the team needed in what moments.

"In the first half, when we were not really doing well, they were calm and patient and they knew exactly we were waiting for this moment where we can put our stamp on the game, and this moment will come also against Liverpool.

"They will have a good feeling to support us in the right moments, I'm sure."

With Saints in good form and seeking another big result in their bid for safety, and Liverpool in need of the points in their quest for the Premier League title, there is a great deal of anticipation around the game, and Hasenhüttl is relishing it himself.

"I think everybody is looking forward to this game – the crowd, the supporters, us as a staff and a team," he said.

"I spoke about it maybe being the best game we can now have, because we are five points above the line and maybe everybody feels the pressure is a little bit down, but the crucial part is that we stay focused, as it's a very good opponent that you need to have a nearly perfect game to take points in.

"That's the reason why we are very happy we are facing Liverpool on Friday."
