OLE Gunnar Solskjaer compared Saints boss Ralph Hasenhuttl to Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, as he credited him with injecting aggression into his side.

The Manchester United manager is set to bring his troops to St Mary’s in the Premier league on Sunday (2pm).

Saints sealed two draws against the Red Devils last season. A 1-1 contest at St Mary’s was followed by a 2-2 draw at Old Trafford 11 months later.

And Solskjaer insists he can see a similar style in Saints under Hasenhuttl to what Liverpool have under title-winning boss Klopp.

“It’s similar to when Jurgen came to Liverpool,” he said.

“He’s a coach who likes pressing, being on the front foot and aggressive, which is of course more difficult to play against.

“It’s very interesting to watch the progress Southampton have made under Ralph.

“You know you’re in for a game for 96, 97 minutes. They scored in the 96th minute against us last year.

“I’m a big admirer of the physical attributes he has in his team.”
