Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl speaks ahead of Man United clash

Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl feels his charges need to bring out 'the big guns' when they host Manchester United on Sunday afternoon.

Man United will be going into this match hoping to maintain their unbeaten run away from home; making that eight Premier League victories on the road.

Hasenhuttl believes that his team's current form is formidable and will help them secure three points that will push them up on the log.

"If they would have more consistent, high performances, then they would be top of the table," he said.

"They are not at the moment and the reason for that is they have not had such a high performance every week - and you never know what you are going to get.

"On some days they are amazing and on some days they are struggling, so it is about how much of an issue we give them with our way which we play.

"That is the reason why we try always to concentrate on what we are doing.

"If we do well, if we do every part of the game in a way we can do, in a nasty way for every opponent, then we have a chance to take something.

"But in such games you need everything - you need the luck at the right moment, a clinical finish, don't give too many chances away, because they will score otherwise, and the rest is about fighting for everything."

"In the last weeks, we have seen some good progress in our game," he continued.

"Still now it is not getting easy winning games in the future. It is getting more and more difficult because opponents will watch us and analyse us.

"They will find solutions to play against us and that means we have to get better. Every week to do some things better and learn how to play every part of our game the best we can do."
