Ralph Hasenhüttl says Southampton must learn to be more clinical in the final third after falling to a 1-0 home defeat against Wolves.

Raúl Jiménez scored the only goal of the game in the 61st minute – one of only five shots for the visitors compared to 18 for Saints.

Despite coming into the game on a six-match unbeaten run that's now three consecutive Premier League games without scoring, a trend the boss admits must be addressed quickly.

“We did not find a way to the back of the net, and one time naively defending is enough to lose against such a team,” he said.

“I must say that until that moment we had the bigger chances, to be honest, but we didn’t find a way.

“In the last three games no goal in the Premier League shows the problems we have at the moment.

“We need to learn to get more out of the situations we are sometimes in and have chances to score, or to shoot on goal.

“The final shot, the final pass is not there at the moment, and this is what we have to work on.

“Like every week, we will try to find a way to be more dangerous up front and keep on defending properly.”
