(EFE) .- A goal after three minutes from Adam Armstrong was enough for Southampton to win against Aston Villa (1-0) and extend their climb in the Premier League that this weekend reaches the eleventh day.
The team of Austrian Ralph Hasenhuettl has already accumulated four games without losing. Three wins and a draw; ten out of twelve points at stake that have separated him from the relegation zone and have placed him in a comfortable situation before the new competitive break due to the commitments of the national teams.
Southampton made the most of Armstrong’s goal after three minutes, when he hit a ball on the edge of the area and his precise shot overtook Argentine Emiliano Martínez.
The little faith in the comeback gave away the visiting team to St. Mary’s Stadium. Dean Smith’s team was unable to avoid its fifth straight loss. The Birmingham box is in crisis, increasingly closer to the bottom of the table.
Southampton, meanwhile, is tenth but three points behind the European zone in a competition led by Chelsea.
