Team Preview - Southampton [Premier League 2019-20 - 5/20]

Southampton FC

by NickTM

Welcome to the triumphant return of the Premier League Previews, a series where a fan I, in this case, gives an overview of his a team for your perusal, and I get an excuse to take pot-shots at other clubs. This will run until the eve of the Premier League, taking a look at each club in turn. Today we're staying on the south coast and taking a day in Southampton.
About

Last season

Southampton underwent what some politely call a 'transition year' last season out. A raft of player turnover marked the close season; Dusan Tadic, Guido Carrillo, Sofiane Boufal, Jordy Clasie, Harrison Reed, Josh Sims, Florin Gardos and Jeremy Pied all left the club on loan or permanently over the summer, with Wesley Hoedt, Cedric Soares and Steven Davis all being shipped out on loan in the winter window. Manolo Gabbiadini also returned to his home country in January after a spell in which he generally failed to catch fire in a way the Saints had hoped. To bolster the squad, Celtic's Stuart Armstrong was brought in alongside centre back Jannik Vestergaard, Norwegian forward Mohamed Elyounoussi and Manchester City's Angus Gunn, the latter introduced with expectations of being the team's goalkeeper potentially for the next decade or beyond. Finally, Danny Ings arrived on loan, seeking to revive a career that had stalled due to a succession of nasty injuries.
Despite this, Southampton endured the first half of the season in something close to a full-blown crisis. A win against Crystal Palace in September proved the only one for months, and as the season wore on and the team's position slipped ever lower in the table, so the stakeholders began to feel the heat. First to go was vice-chairman Les Reed and he was followed swiftly by technical director Martin Hunter before the axe finally fell on manager Mark Hughes, who left the club after 8 months with a brutal record of 3 wins in 22 league games. His replacement was, seemingly, already lined up, and within two days Ralph Hasenhüttl had been confirmed as manager. His first game in charge was an important loss in a relegation six-pointer against Cardiff, but in their manager's first home game Danny Ings scored twice and Charle Austin netted five minutes from time to claim a 3-2 victory over Arsenal and change the entire complex of the season.
From there, Southampton slowly but surely dug themselves out of trouble. A draw against Chelsea highlighted the newfound defensive competence of the team and wins over Leicester and Everton soon followed, the Saints pulling off a critical win against Fulham to drag themselves out of the relegation zone. Three more wins in the next five games consolidated them as relegation rivals faltered, and eventually a back-and-forth 3-3 against Bournemouth sealed their Premier League status for another season.

This Season

Well, the subreddit certainly seems to have bought into the cult of Ralph. They're not the only ones buying, either; Southampton moved quickly to bring in one Che Zach Everton Fred Adams, who continues his meteoric rise from non-league to finally end up in the Premier League. Other reinforcements also came in attack, with a £20m outlay enough to turn Danny Ings' loan into a permanent transfer. The final signing so far was Moussa Djenepo, a hugely talented winger from Standard Liege. Elsewhere, a fond farewell was said to the continually underrated Steven Davis, whilst Matt Targett and Jordy Clasie both departed.
It's clear Hasenhüttl has a vision for how he wants his team to play, so it's likely Southampton will be trying to employ his favoured hassling, high tempo style, and the signings so far underline that. Che Adams is a particularly intriguing player, as the dominant Championship striker failing to make the grade at the Prem is a well-worn trope, but he most definitely fits Ralph's style and his time in the lower leagues has furnished him with a wealth of experience and gamesense despite his relatively tender years. Danny Ings is, of course, a known quantity, having departed Liverpool with a fair amount of love from the fans, and the insurance of having a proven Premier League quality striker cannot be overstated for a team that battled relegation last year. If everything works out and the team pushes upwards in the table, Djenepo's raw talent will become all the more enticing with more freedom to play.
Saints fans will expect to be heading back towards the realms of the table they've made their own in recent years as opposed to slumming it in the bottom third, and despite their travails last season the core of the team is still very strong. It'd be a brave man to bet big against them making the top half again.

Che Adams Perm Birmingham City Southampton 15
Moussa Djenepo Perm Standard Liege Southampton Undisc.
Danny Ings Perm Liverpool Southampton 20
All incoming/outgoing transfers Full 2019-20 squad
3 players to watch out for
Nathan Redmond
Saints' reigning player of the year began to show some properly impressive form under Hasenhüttl, and expectations are accordingly raised.
Pierre-Emile Højbjerg
It's hard to understate Højbjerg's influence in midfield, and he's often the driving force behind much of what Southampton do well on the pitch.
Moussa Djenepo
Who knows how his season will pan out or even how much he'll be involved, but there's a reason young, tricky wingers always engender such excitement amongst the fans. If he settles in and hits form, Djenepo could well end up looking like a masterstroke.
What the fans think
Thanks to /SaintsFC for their help.
How do you think this season will go?
The season is looking promising with Ralph having a full pre season and premier league experience. The team have made some good signings and we could come around mid-Table. I’m being optimistic and thinking 10th is doable.
A strong mid table dropping to around 13th at the lowest, a slow start to the beginning of the season but once the rhythm gets going with the newer manager and players I feel it well gel together quite quickly.
I'm quietly optimistic with how this season will go. Despite the fact we continue to ship out the deadwood and reduce the size of the squad, we have brought in some electric forwards in Che Adams and Moussa Djenepo. Hasenhuttl has given us a glimpse of what is to come, and with a full pre-season under his belt, I'm hopefully that we will find ourselves back in the top half like we were a few seasons ago.
Which player is going to be your star of the season and why?
Nathan Redmond, at the start of last season he was an unpopular figure with the Saints fans but he comes into this season as our reigning Player of the Year and for good reason. Hasenhuttl’s high-octane style suits him down to the ground, he’s gone from stuck on the wing for a side who constantly slowed down play in the final third to being a more central player in a team that aims to win the ball high up, break forward, and get shots off quickly. He’s always had bags of talent but poor decision making, playing in a team with a clear tactical plan that suits his qualities should lead to him getting at least 10 goals this season.
Ward-Prowse added a whole new side to his game last season under Hasenhuttl, adding an edge that he never showed early in his career - this means that is finally set to establish himself as a starter in the team, after showing plenty of promise but never really finding a permanent role up to now. His set piece ability is also up there with the best in the league.
Either Che Adams or Nathan Redmond. Both have a lot to prove and had good previous seasons which will hopefully continue into this one.
How do you think the team will line up?
---------------------------Gunn
-----------Bednarek-----------Vestergaard
Valery-----------------------------------------------Bertrand
------------------Höjbjerg----------Romeu
Djenepo--------------------------------------------Redmond
--------------------Adams----------Ings
If Ralph moves towards his 4-2-2-2, maybe something like this? Though as others have mentioned, 5ATB is also a possibility against stronger teams.
Hasenhuttl is known to prefer the 4-2-2-2 but has spoken a lot about changing formations mid-game, has a history of changing formations from game to based on opposition with us (my favorite example is lining up in a 5-2-3 with wingers against Wolves to exploit the space behind their wing backs in a match we won 3-1 thanks to our wingers finding those spaces) and hasn’t been shy about making clear tactical alterations within games.
We’ll likely see the 4-2-2-2 used, along with some variations of a 5-3-2/5-2-3 from time to time but we won’t be beholden to playing in one particular formation by any means.
In terms of the players nailed onto the team sheet, that’s probably Gunn, Valery, Bednarek, Bertrand, Hojbjerg, Ward-Prowse, and Redmond with Ings, Che Adams, Vestergaard, Romeu, and Djenepo also getting plenty of playing time. I reckon we’ll see a lot of Michael Obafemi off the bench as an impact sub, with room for another one or two academy players to earn themselves plenty of playing time

Wrap Up

by NickTM

The Manager: Given the amount of times Ralph Hasenhüttl's name has come up in this preview alone I'd be amazed if you need that much more of a breakdown of him, so I'll keep it short. The former RB Leipzig manager already dug Southampton out of quite a hole last season, and his penchant for an aggressive and fast style of play should make Southampton intriguing viewing.
The Team: As mentioned earlier, it's surprising a team of this assembled talent managed to dance with the drop so much last season. Ryan Bertrand, Pierre-Emile Højbjerg, Mario Lemina, Nathan Redmond, James Ward-Prowse; these names are just a sampling of a laundry list of proper Premier League-level players that should be finding their level again this season. It remains to be see what will happen in regards to Mario Lemina and Charlie Austin appears to have had a slapfight with his manager, so expect more of both ins and outs in the coming weeks.
Why to like them: James Ward-Prowse is a bit of a throwback player, a not particularly quick sort-of winger with a deadly delivery of the ilk that's just nice to still have around. Their Twitter signing announcement videos actually hit that lovely sweet spot where they're clearly putting effort in, but it resulting in a tongue-in-cheek bit of fun rather than some horribly overblown and dramatic 2 minute long biopic. Everyone loves them a bit of Danny Ings, noodle tendons and all. Shane Long's name can be shortened to Shlong.
Why to dislike them: Jesus Christ how can you fuck up red and white stripes so badly?! It looks like you've got to get rid of leftover black ink. Also, it's incredibly uncharitable to dislike their existence fuelling others fans' shite banter about how they're a Liverpool B team, and yet...
Summary: Not too much to say that I haven't already, I feel. It'd be surprising to see them anywhere below 14th given their array of talent, but I suspect most Southampton fans would be happy with simply going the season without getting into a proper relegation scrap. The team is young and talented and has time on its side, so a year of consolidation wouldn't be the worst thing by any means, but I expect good things nonetheless.

'CHELSEA LOOK LIKE THEY ARE MOVING'

Chelsea are finally starting to get going in this summer's transfer window, according to Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville.
"For me, Courtois is one of the best," the former Man Utd captain told Sky Sports' Premier League launch show.
"I absolutely love him. I know people say I’m critical of 'keepers, but I also love quite a few keepers and I absolutely love Courtois.
"He’s [Kepa] got big shoes to fill and it’s a big price. Pep Guardiola said in an interview with us that Chelsea are going to do quite a lot of business in the next few days and obviously the market talks and agents talk.
"Chelsea look like they are moving. They have been a little slow in the transfer market and a little bit less obvious in the transfer market over the last few years than they have been previously. It looks like they are making a move again."

WATCH: HOT DEADLINE DAY TIP

Sky Sports News reporter Jamie Weir cuts through the froth to find out what's really going to be brewing on Transfer Deadline Day.
13:04

CHELSEA EYE UP COURTOIS REPLACEMENTS

Athletic Bilbao’s Kepa Arrizabalaga is a goalkeeper target for Chelsea, Sky Sports News understands.
With the Blues resigned to losing Thibaut Courtois to Real Madrid before the deadline after he missed training for a second day today, the club are focusing their attentions on securing his replacement.
Stoke’s Jack Butland remains their first choice because of the nature of the deal, according to Sky sources, which is expected to cost them £30m if they can act quickly - but that price will rise the close to the deadline it becomes.
Arrizabalaga would cost Chelsea much more, and a fee of around £70m would make him the most expensive goalkeeper in the world - eclipsing Alisson only weeks after the Brazilian joined Liverpool.
Maurizio Sarri would also like to go for Atletico goalkeeper Jan Oblak, but his £89m release clause is a stumbling block.
13:01

TERRIERS WANT NEW WINGER

Huddersfield are interested in signing Montpellier winger Isaac Mbenza, according to Sky sources.
12:53

GUDJOHNSEN SON JOINS REAL

Eidur Gudjohnsen's son Andri Lucas Gudjohnsen has joined Real Madrid, the 16-year-old has revealed.
Writing on Instagram after moving from Espanyol, he said: "Very excited and pleased to announce that I have signed with Real Madrid! Looking forward to the future."
The move could provide some friction in the Gudjohnsen household - dad Eidur famously turned out for Barcelona after leaving Chelsea during his playing career. And should he play for his national team at any point, he will follow in the footsteps of both his father and grandfather.
12:42

MINA ABSENT FROM BARCA TRAINING

Everton and Manchester United target Yerry Mina missed Barcelona training this morning, reporter Vinny O'Connor has just confirmed to Sky Sports News.
The Colombian defender, who scored three goals from centre-back at the World Cup, is being chased by both clubs - so his absence will increase speculation over his future even more.
12:37

CELTIC REJECT BOYATA BID

Brendan Rodgers has been speaking ahead of Celtic's game with AEK Athens tomorrow night (preview here), and confirmed Fulham have rejected a firm bid for Dredryk Boyata.
Rodgers said the Bhoys had knocked back the bid because "it would be very difficult for us to replace him at this late stage".
12:24

LEVERKUSEN LOAN FOR THELIN

Bayer Leverkusen have signed Sweden forward Isaac Kiese Thelin on a season-long loan from Anderlecht.
The 26-year-old, who was in Sweden's World Cup squad, spent last season on loan at Belgian side Waasland-Beveren.
"He has developed excellently in the Belgian league," Leverkusen head coach Heiko Herrlich said on the club website. "Isaac is an additional option for us up front."
12:19

BURNLEY BACK IN J-ROD HUNT

Sky Sports News understands Burnley will make an improved £18m offer to West Brom for striker Jay Rodriguez later today.
Sean Dyche is becoming increasingly frustrated by the situation and wants a new striker in before the deadline - it's thought Rodriguez is keen on a move back to the Premier League in his home town, but is prepared to stay and try to get Albion back into the top division if a deal can’t be done.
12:14

LEICESTER CLOSE TO DEFENDER

Leicester City have a broad agreement with Dinamo Zagreb for young defender Filip Benkovic, Sky Sports News understands, with the Croatian Under-21 international due to fly to England later today for further talks.
The deal could cost Leicester more than £10m, but it’s understood Claude Puel considers him as a good prospect for the future, rather than someone who can go straight into the first team - and is not viewed as a Harry Maguire replacement.
12:09

SWANSEA WANT YEOVIL DEFENDER

Swansea are in talks over a potential deal to sign Yeovil’s Tom James, according to Sky sources.
The defender’s deal to West Brom collapsed over personal terms last week, giving the Swans renewed hope.
James is predominantly a right-back can cover anywhere across the back-four - making him an attractive possible squad member.
He played in Yeovil's 1-0 defeat to Bury on Saturday - but was sent off.
12:07

WHO IS RYAN EDMONDSON?

He's just signed a new deal at Leeds United, but who is 17-year-old striker Ryan Edmondson? There's no test on this, but if he ends up as England's star striker remember where you heard his name first...

No fee has yet been agreed between Villa and Hibs for the 23-year-old Scotland international.
Celtic have seen several bids for McGinn rejected this summer, and it’s thought both the player and Hibs prefer a move to the English Championship.

“I think the most important thing is that in every game I give 100 per cent,” the Croatia international told Rangers TV.
“I think the Rangers fan recognise that and I will give my heart for Ibrox – I think that is important.
“I want to give back for all the messages the fans have sent me, and all the belief the manager has shown me. I need to back all this up on the pitch, and I will do that.”

KOVACIC TO CHELSEA?

Mateo Kovacic is closing on a season-long loan to Chelsea, reports Marca.
Kovacic trained with Real Madrid on Monday but after speaking with the club he has decided he will not train or wear their shirt again, for the time being.
He publicly announced his desire to change clubs during the World Cup and has asked the club to leave on three occasions.
The club had declared Kovacic non-transferrable and the player, who is determined to leave the Bernabeu in search of regular first-team football, did not understand their stance.
But Marca claim Madrid have given up with their efforts to keep Kovacic and the Croatia international is on the verge of joining Chelsea on a season-long loan.

Speaking after the game, Bruce told Sky Sports: "We'll do our best to keep hold of him but obviously it's going to be difficult.
“We understand the human side. He'll want to play in the Premier League, he'll want to play in Europe, and he’ll want to play in the Champions League.
“I'm sure it's going to be a fraught few days! The owner has made clear he wants him to stay and that's what we'll try to do. To be fair to Jack, he's just got on with it. Roll on Thursday!"

Over the weekend Courtois' agent revealed that his client wants to move to Madrid to be closer to his family.
Courtois has one year left on his contract at Stamford Bridge and is valued by Real at £32m, but Sky Sports News understands that Chelsea will not resume talks with the European champions until they find a suitable replacement.
06:14

UNITED REJECT POGBA SWAP OFFER

Sky Italy report that United have rejected a cash plus player offer for the France international from the La Liga champions.
It's understood Barca offered £45m plus Yerry Mina and Andre Gomes in exchange for Pogba. That deal has been rejected.

Sky Sports News understand Barca are serious about bringing Pogba to the Nou Camp.

Match Thread: QPR vs. Aston Villa

QPR vs. Aston Villa
Venue: Loftus Road
Kick Off: 16:00pm BST/GMT
Referee: Oliver
Why not join the IRC live soccer chat?
With Joey Barton in fine form since joining the London club, and a Villa side who need a result this weekend after a poor midweek performance against Bolton, this match could be a corker!!
So let's get the match facts.
Match facts/preview
TEAM NEWS QPR have no fresh injury concerns but Kieron Dyer remains out with a foot injury and Clint Hill joined Nottingham Forest on loan this week.
Jamie Mackie is not yet in contention but is back in full training after a double leg break last January.
Aston Villa are hoping deadline-day signing Jermaine Jenas will finally be fit after a thigh injury.
But Darren Bent has been ruled out with a groin problem, while fellow striker Emile Heskey remains an absentee.
MATCH PREVIEW The last time QPR beat Villa, pop star Jarvis Cocker was about to stun the world! When Kevin Gallen grabbed the only goal of that victory in December 1995, Michael Jackson was Top of the Pops with his Earth Song dirge. Cocker was so enraged at Jackson's performance at the Brits a few weeks later, he invaded the stage and waggled his bottom in Jacko's face!
People who downvote Match threads have aids, let's see who actually reads this stuff. I'll go for a first Rangers top-flight win since they beat West Ham in April 1996 QPR now have someone who loves to get in the face of opponents and they hope Joey Barton continues his abrasive form.
He's already driven them a long way from the naive opening hammering by Bolton and can inspire a first home Premier League victory of the season against Villa, who were poor in the midweek cup defeat by Bolton and who are fortunate to still be unbeaten in the league. I mean, I bet I can put anything, an nobody will give two shits.
Injuries to Darren Bent and Emile Heskey have hit them. Gabby Agbonlahor, though, is looking sharp. He's scored half of Villa's league goals and three in his last four Premier League games. His quick movement in from wide positions will threaten QPR's new-look defence, where Luke Young will be up against his old team. I mean, who do redditors think they are, I create a thread for a Premier League match, because nobody else can be bothered, and they downvote me. Well, guess what, I give you something to downvote, not that you will notice.
With Shaun Wright-Phillips in sparkling form in his opening two matches, Barton's leadership and DJ Campbell's quick feet in the box, I'll go for a first Rangers top-flight home win since they beat West Ham in April 1996.
Earth Song was just an insipid memory by then. Mark Morrison was at Number One with Return of the Mack. Now he did have a bit of snap and snarl about him - just like Joey!
MATCH FACTS Head-to-head
QPR are unbeaten at home to Aston Villa in the Premier League (W3, D1). Villa won 4-2 in the last league meeting between the sides - that was in March 1996 when Dwight Yorke scored twice, while Kevin Gallen was on the scoresheet for QPR. Gallen also scored the winner when the teams last met in the league at Loftus Road in December 1995. Managers Neil Warnock and Alex McLeish previously met in the 2008-09 season when both were in the Championship - McLeish's Birmingham beating Warnock's Crystal Palace at St Andrew's, and the sides then drew 0-0 at Selhurst Park. QPR
QPR haven't scored at Loftus Road yet this season in league or cup. Last season, Rangers won their first four home league matches without conceding a goal. Captain Joey Barton scored the opening goal for Newcastle in their 6-0 win over Aston Villa last season. Aston Villa
Aston Villa are unbeaten after five games of this season's Premier League (for the first time since 2006-07) but have drawn four of their matches. Gabby Agbonlahor has scored half of Villa's league goals this season and has scored three in his last four league games. Only Newcastle have conceded fewer goals than Villa in this season's Premier League. Darren Bent has been caught offside 12 times this season, more than any other Premier League player.
So where are both teams in the league at the moment, I hear you ask?
1 Man Utd 6 17 16 2 Man City 6 14 16 3 Chelsea 6 5 13 4 Newcastle 6 4 12 5 Liverpool 6 0 10 6 Tottenham 5 0 9 7 Stoke 6 -2 9 8 Aston Villa 5 2 7 9 Everton 5 0 7 10 QPR 5 -2 7 11 Wolves 6 -3 7 12 Arsenal 6 -5 7 13 Sunderland 5 2 5 14 Norwich 5 -2 5 15 Wigan 6 -4 5 16 Swansea 6 -5 5 17 Fulham 6 -3 4 18 Blackburn 6 -5 4 19 West Brom 6 -5 4 20 Bolton 6 -8 3
So both teams have had the better of performances out of 20 this season so far, with both teams resting in the top 10.
So you're now interested after reading all that, where can you watch?
Well, if you're a British or Irish citizen, Sky Sports is free this weekend, meaning at 3.30pm GMT, you will be able to pick up the game on Sky Sports 1, without paying the extra £5 per week. Bonus! If you can't find a TV but you're a Sky customer, why not use the SKY GO application, type that in Google and get yourself signed up. For people who neither have Sky or the option of purchasing Sky, you will be needing a stream?
