Southampton boss Hasenhuttl: We're struggling at St Mary's

Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl admits they're struggling to handle playing at St Mary's.

Saints' 2-1 defeat against Burnley was their eighth loss in 13 Premier League home games this season – more than any other side.

“Sometimes it is a little difficult to play at home," he admitted.

“Against Burnley everyone expects that we are 3-0 up after ten minutes. It is a little hard to show this, this is a pressure guys aren't used to carrying.

“In away games no-one expects anything from us. Maybe that's the reason we perform better in away games."
