Southampton haven’t just had problems when it comes to goalscoring so far in the season of 2018/19, we’ve also had issues at the back with a very leaky defence but having secured a point against Bournemouth last weekend and kept a clean sheet to boot, there have been some reasons for cheer amongst the fan base.

With manager Mark Hughes unexpectedly bringing in Jack Stephens to partner Wesley Hoedt in the heart of the backline for what was only his third appearances in the top-flight this year – the first two coming way back in August – the 24-year-old was certainly the subject of praise following the fulltime whistle given his efforts on the day.

The point will be valuable as we edged ourselves narrowly away from the relegation zone, but the boost in confidence should be something we can now build on as the season progresses.
