SAINTS manager Ralph Hasenhuttl is looking to make it three Premier League wins on the bounce on Sunday.

The St Mary’s side will take on Newcastle away from home, with the Magpies securing a solid win themselves against Sheffield United on Thursday.

Saints go into the tie full of confidence after beating both Watford and Norwich to move out of the relegation zone.

“We have the chance to take nine points in one week, which is the same for the nine weeks before,” explained Hasenhuttl.

“We know how quick in football things can change and I like it.

“If you are in a rhythm and you have belief because the results are good then it’s a good chance to get in the next game and take the next points.

“Both is ok if you are in a good mood and want to play. If you want to train and work on a few things, then it’s not so easy but I think it’s ok.”

Saints’ last visit to St James’ Park saw them on the wrong end of a 3-1 defeat, thanks to an Ayoze Perez hat-trick.

But with their last game on the road being their impressive draw at Arsenal, Hasenhuttl is backing his team to come away with something if they play in a similar way.

“We are always speaking about our performances at home and in the away games we have taken points consistently against good opponents.

“We like to go away, and we know that we had a difficult game last season.

“It won’t be easy to get something there, but we need a very, very good performance and we can show that.

“This is the belief we have to go there and show a really good game. This is our goal with our supporters together. We want to show we invest everything to take something.”

Due to Newcastle playing on Thursday, Saints have had an extra day’s recovery ahead of tomorrow’s encounter.

Steve Bruce’s side have proven to be incredibly difficult to beat at home, losing just once which was on the opening day of the season.

They are likely to be without a host of players through injury, but Hasenhuttl feels as though the lack of recovery time won’t hand his team the advantage.

“We will know after the game if it was,” he added.

“We didn’t have the feeling on Wednesday that we will have one day more off than Newcastle.

“In the beginning, we might be a little bit more fresh but in the Premier League every team can push for 90 minutes, so it’s not a big advantage for us.”
