Hasenhuttl said: “If you had told me before the season that on the 13th match day, we would be four points ahead of Man City – okay, they have played one game less – I would say you are not really right, [you are] stupid.
“But we are at the moment, so we have done a few things right. Now we have to look to be again a good opponent and a competitive opponent.”
Guardiola said: “Southampton have an exceptional manager. I know him a little bit from my time in Germany. He was at many clubs, Leipzig played in a specific style. He has experience at the back and one of the best midfielders in the Premier League, [Oriol] Romeu. They have James Ward-Prowse, incredible player in set pieces.
“So no surprise in their success. Southampton for many, many years have been working well – so no surprise.”
