Southampton surprises Wolves, strengthens safety bid

The Saints won thanks to goals from Nathan Redmond and Shane Long, as they secured a crucial win in their fight for survival.

Saints were in a hurry to pad their bid for Premier League safety, and Josh Sims took advantage in his first Premier League start of the season.

"He knows that I demand a lot from him, not only with the ball but also without. I think now there is a little less pressure but I want this team to show me we are still focused and trying to win every game". "For me, it is unbelievable that he was very much criticised last season in this stadium".

"I gave them a wake-up call at half-time even though we were leading 2-1, because we were not fearless enough and we had a long way to go". How many games have we had at home?

"This was planned and we are proceeding with the plan, going to the training camp to regroup and become stronger for the next games", he said.

"We breakfast together, train together, eat lunch together, eat dinner together. Congratulations to them as they were better than us".

Wolves are now without a win in their last five away games in the Premier League and boss Nuno Espirito Santo had no complaints with his side's latest defeat on their travels. "Come on", said Nuno, walking out to cut short his post-match interviews.

Asked whether Wolves' 3-2 extra-time semi-final loss to Watford had hit his side hard on the south coast, Nuno had earlier said: "I understand that question, but no, we have to look at different things. It was a massive one for us", he told a media conference.
