Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl forgot to shake hands with his Arsenal counterpart Unai Emery amidst overwhelming emotion of a late win on his home debut Sunday.

Charlie Austin’s 85th minute header sealed the 3-2 victory for Soton for their first Premier League home win since April. It also ended Arsenal’s 22-match unbeaten run.

Overwhelmed with emotion, Ralph rushed to the field at the blow of the final whistle to hug and celebrate with his players.
