SOUTHAMPTON boss Ralph Hasenhuttl is expecting to come up against a “different” Burnley following Sean Dyche’s departure.

Under-23s boss Mike Jackson took charge of the Clarets during their 1-1 draw with West Ham over the weekend.

Wout Weghorst scored his second goal for the club, while Maxwel Cornet missed a penalty on the stroke of half-time.

Hasenhuttl says Turf Moor is “never an easy place” to visit and insists his side will have to be resilient.

"He was there for a long time and you could see his team played with a philosophy. When somebody like him leaves, it is normal things are a little different,” he told .

"They tried to use spaces more against West Ham, they played more football and their full-backs were higher. They have changed small margins, but the players and behaviour is the same.

"It is never an easy place to go. You have to expect a tough atmosphere and be resistant. They are fighting for their lives. It is not always about nice football, it is about defending your goal.

"This is the first season I'm here where we don't talk about being safe. We tried to set higher targets. We are in the middle part of the table - it is very tight, every team has the chance to gain positions.

“We have lost fewer games than last season and drawn more - that shows you we are a little more serious in the way we defend. To get a top 10 finish, we need to concede fewer goals."

The Saints are currently 12th in the Premier League table – just a point off the top half with six games still to play before the end of the season.

The points were shared when the sides met back in October, with scoring twice in an entertaining 2-2 draw at St Mary’s.
