Southampton boss Hasenhuttl: Smith appointment means prep change for Norwich

Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl says they've had to adjust their preparation for facing Norwich City.

Dean Smith has taken charge of Norwich after being sacked by Aston Villa - after their defeat to Saints.

Hasenhuttl said: "We maybe have the knowledge about Dean Smith from the last game, how he wanted to play, but now it is new team, new players, so it can definitely be different.

"It can be a big advantage because he knows what he has to expect from us but anyway, we have to take it as it is.

"It is a little bit different, the preparation for this game. You cannot use that much footage to show the players.

"Last game we did things very good and some things not so good but we will improve and hopefully be prepared for a good game."

He added: "We have only Jack Stephens out – everyone else is fit.

"There were only a few issues that we had, but everyone is fit and everybody is on the pitch."
