Southampton’s draw against Manchester United over the weekend was a good point for the Saints, and on another day they may have not gone down to ten men and could have gone on to secure a big three points in the early season.
On the day, Che Adams started yet another game, and whilst he failed to get on the scoresheet, the signs are all there that the young striker can be the man to take the Saints forward and really help this season be a special one for the supporters.
At the age of just 23-years-old, Saturday was Adams’ 4th Premier League appearance of his career, and whilst he’s failed to get that elusive first goal in the competition, the chances are coming and the frontman is looking good and posting good stats as he builds up towards that first goal.
Last season saw the then-Birmingham man scored 22 goals and register five assists as he played a part in all of the Blues’ 46 Championship games, Transfermarkt. Whilst the step up from the Championship to the Premier League is tough, the youngster has what it takes to make the grade.
Against Manchester United, Saints Marching gave Adams a rating of 6/10, it was far from his best performance of his career but the striker did his bit in a three-man attack which also consisted of wide-man Sofiane Boufal and striker Danny Ings.
As the striker completed his 62 minutes of action he won two aerial duels, had one shot, completed one key pass and had a passing accuracy of 85.7%, via WhoScored, and when that first goal comes it will be a big relief for the striker who could be set to go on and shine throughout his debut Premier League season.
