Southampton boss Hasenhuttl happy with Armstrong attitude replacing Ings

Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl believes Adam Armstrong is coping with the pressure to replace Danny Ings.

The English striker, signed from Blackburn Rovers to replace Ings, who joined Aston Villa, scored on debut in the loss to Everton last Saturday.

Speaking about his new striker, Hasenhuttl said: "He is definitely coping with it. He has the same number on his shirt and he doesn't care because he knows he can score goals.

"It is on us to bring him in the position to go there and we know that Ingsy was here for two years until he started scoring for us.

"We have enough time, Che Adams has enough time to develop himself and we know that it is not so easy to step into the Premier League and immediately be there.

"The young lads will get all the time they need to develop."
