Southampton – why has their great run gone unnoticed?

When Southampton lost 9-0 to Leicester back on October 25th, many feared for the Saints with some calling for manager Ralph Hasenhüttl’s head.

The Southampton board stuck by him and have reaped the results, but the media seems to have forgotten about their form.

Everyone has rightly been praising Jurgen Klopp, Chris Wilder and Brendan Rodgers this season but the job done by the Austrian since the huge loss has been dismissed.

Since then, the Saints have gained 23 points from a possible 45, including a home league win over Tottenham, an away win over Chelsea (above) and a draw against Arsenal away.

They even got a revenge win late on over Leicester (above) and now sit on 31 points at time of writing, 6 points off safety.

When they lost 9-0, they were sat in 18th place and to now be in 13th is testament to the Southampton manager.

Danny Ings has been in the best form of his career this season and Ward Prowse shone before his horror injury.

For me I dont see it being likely that they would go down and the form they have been in the last few months gives me confidence that with the right backing by the board they can do well and push on.

Maybe its due to the biggest achievements of Klopp and Wilder why Hasenhüttl has not been mentioned more but you have to give alot of credit to him for turning this team around when it seemed bleak.
