One of the positives from Southampton’s draw with Watford last weekend was the slightly improved performance by misfiring striker Manolo Gabbiadini.

With everyone knowing what the little 26-year-old Italian is capable of, we just haven’t seen it enough this season but on Saturday in his second Premier League start of the season he opened his account for the year and almost helped send us to victory.

With goalscoring issues at Southampton this year once again, fans will be praying that getting on the scoresheet will get him back to his early best when he arrived at St Mary’s Stadium to begin with, add that to Danny Ings and hopefully, a fired up Charlie Austin after his post-game speech and there might finally be something to smile about.

No point getting too far ahead of ourselves at this stage though as we now have to contend with the November international break getting in the way of things again.

Maybe the wing role may prove to be a decent catalyst for him – I’ll be sat here with my fingers crossed, but he deserved his praise after that one.
