Two goals by Nathan Redmond and another by Shane Long took Southampton closer to fulfilling the survival mission that was entrusted to Ralph Hasenhüttl in December. Saints were floundering in 18th position when the Austrian replaced Mark Hughes as manager and had a solitary Premier League win for the season. Since then they have been transformed and this win, their eighth in the league under Hasenhüttl, could have been even more emphatic. It hoisted them eight points clear of the team now in 18th, Cardiff City.
While Southampton needed to play like their Premier League lives depended on victory, the visiting manager, Nuno Espírito Santo, wanted his team to debunk the theory that Wolves’ season effectively ended when they blew a two-goal lead in the last week’s FA Cup semi-final against Watford.
