Southampton end 10-man Everton’s unbeaten run
Southampton 2-0 Everton: Lucas Digne was sent off on a miserable afternoon for the Toffees at St Mary’s
Saints boss, Ralph Hasenhuttl, told BBC Sport:
“My team did a fantastic job today, from the first moment you could feel that the plan was working and the guys were sticking to it. It was one of the best first halves so far for us.
“I was always convinced that Che Adams’ time would come, sometimes it takes a long time to adapt to this level but he was always learning and working hard and he gets what he deserves now.
“We did not talk once this week about losing 9-0 [a year ago today], that is a topic for you guys, but it was important what we did after that defeat. Now we don’t even think about it any more, I don’t care.”
Reaction from Southampton captain and goalscorer, James Ward-Prowse, who told Sky Sports:
“We knew it was a good challenge for us, they came here unbeaten and we didn’t like that feeling. Our confidence was high.
“We were aggressive, we believe in what we are doing and we have the quality to go and score goals.
“We’ll take a 2-0 win at home all day long. I want to try and score a few more goals and that’s the demand of the manager. We highlighted their key players and adpated our game to nullify that threat, and we did that well today.
“This gives us a lot of confidence, we weren’t really troubled.”
Wolves make one change to the side that beat Leeds, with Ruben Neves replacing Joao Moutinho.
Newcastle manager Steve Bruce makes four changes from the side that lost 4-1 to Manchester United last time out. Fabian Schar, Ryan Fraser, Jacob Murphy and Miguel Almiron come in while Emil Krafth, Jonjo Shelvey, Isaac Hayden and Joelinton make way.
