Twice Southampton were pegged back in their battle with West Ham at the London Stadium, but they would not be denied a third time, as the Saints prolonged the Hammers’ misery with a thrilling 3-2 success in the capital.
After Michail Antonio and Said Benrahma had cancelled out efforts from James Ward-Prowse and Mohamed Elyounoussi, Ward-Prowse’s pinpoint free kick found the head of Jan Bednarek with 20 minutes remaining to end Southampton’s miserable winless run.
Hasenhuttl’s side had gone six top-flight games without a win before prevailing at the London Stadium, and as a result the Saints have moved up to 14th in the table ahead of Everton, but they are only one point clear of the Toffees having played a game more.
The hosts will therefore continue to look over their shoulder – especially with 18th-placed Burnley nine points behind with three games in hand – but they can take solace in the fact that they are unbeaten in five Premier League games at home before Antonio Conte pays a visit.
Southampton came down with a trio of coronavirus cases before their win over West Ham, with Jack Stephens, Nathan Tella and Lyanco all returning positive tests.
Fraser Forster was fit enough to return in goal, though, leaving fellow shot-stopper Alex McCarthy (thigh) as the Saints’ only injury absentee for Tuesday’s game.
Hasenhuttl will certainly ring the changes given the 48-hour turnaround, as Ibrahima Diallo, Adam Armstrong and Che Adams prepare for recalls.
As for Spurs, Cristian Romero and Ryan Sessegnon are expected to remain in the treatment room until after the New Year, but Conte has no fresh concerns from the Palace win.
Bryan Gil has recovered from a bout of coronavirus and featured off the bench on Boxing Day, with Conte now potentially handing the Spanish youngster or Steven Bergwijn a start given the 48-hour turnaround.

Harry Kane should be fine to go again after being taken off on the 64-minute mark, but Dele Alli and Tanguy Ndombele could benefit from some forced rotation here.
