Sat 26 February 2022 | 14:33

The Southampton boss thinks his side have a “big chance” to end the Premier League season in the top half this time around after their 2-0 victory over Norwich on Friday.

Che Adams

and

Oriel Romeu

met the back of the net for

Southampton

when they locked horns with

Norwich

, helping them to extend their unbeaten run of five matches in the

Premier League

.

Adams scored the opener in the 36th minute before Romeu extended their lead in the 88th minute, helping the Saints climb to nineth on the table.

When you play consistently – and this is how we are looking at the moment in what we are doing – then there is a big chance this season to end up in the top half of the table,”

Ralph Hasenhuttl

said.

“It would be the first time in five years that we would manage this, so it is a big target.”

Adams’ strike in the game against Norwich was his eighth in 15 matches and the manager was satisfied with his display.

Absolutely (he is doing well), also working always very good for the team, it’s good to watch that a lot of things that we are working on are getting better and better,”

the Southampton boss said.

“These are tough wins to take, we have now two with two clean sheets against clubs at the bottom of the table and looked very in control, very comfortable and very confident.”

Max Aarons revealed that Norwich’s plan was not execute the way they wanted as they only registered one shot on target in their loss at the hands of the Saints.

We came here with a game plan and we haven’t done it well enough tonight,”

the Canaries defender told the club’s official website.

“We gave ourselves too much defending to do. A few unforced errors and we didn’t do what we spoke about before the game.

“We’ve come here and lost and we’ll be disappointed tonight, but we’ll be straight back to it tomorrow. We’ve got huge games ahead now.”
