RALPH Hasenhuttl hailed his side's "very good performance" against Fulham, adding: "They are getting better and better."

Saints sealed back-to-back Premier League victories for the first time since December, sweeping aside the relegated Cottagers 3-1 at St Mary's thanks to goals from Che Adams, Nathan Tella and Theo Walcott.

It follows Tuesday's win against Crystal Palace by the same score-line.

Discussing the victory over Fulham, Hasenhuttl said: "I must say that I was very pleased about my side today. They showed a very good performance.

"They are getting better and better. It is not a coincidence we have scored 10 goals in our past four home games.

"It is definitely a part of our game that has developed since we have more opportunities, more players coming back. Also the subs today had that impact in the game, this is what you need also sometimes when the game is tight.

"We were always speaking this season about dropping points, but it is also helpful when you have from the bench a few guys that can hold their level how. Nathan Tella, Theo and Ibra (Diallo) today did a good job. This is what you need in such a moment."
