With new Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl seeing his early bounce at St Mary’s Stadium undone with a couple of results in recent times, the side got back to winning ways in Saturday’s trip to the King Power Stadium to face Leicester City.

Coming up against former manager Claude Puel, midfielder James Ward-Prowse opened the scoring eleven minutes into the game as he converted from the penalty spot and Shane Long broke his own goal drought in first half stoppage-time to give us a 2-0 lead at the break.

We were down to ten men given Yann Valery’s double booking in the 45th minute, but Leicester could only claw one goal back in the second period and we held on to take the win.

With a step up in performances for a few players, centre-half Jan Bednarek took the plaudits on social media as fans reacted to the win after the fulltime whistle had gone.

Describing him as Virgil van Dijk’s successor may be a step to far on the back of one game, but lots of fans were curious as to why he fell out of favour under Hughes given the performances of others.
