Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl sat down with the media today to discuss various topics ahead of Saturday’s clash with Bournemouth at St Mary’s Stadium.

The Saints came very close to all but securing their Premier League status on Tuesday but were denied the three points by a late Watford equaliser.

With a much better goal difference than Cardiff City as well, the Saints will virtually guarantee survival with a win against Bournemouth.

Hasenhuttl discussed the latest injuries in the squad that have surfaced in recent weeks as well as the importance of this upcoming match.

The manager also spoke of his delight for Shane Long, who broke the record for the fastest ever Premier League goal on Tuesday.
