£15million summer arrival, former Birmingham City striker Che Adams, did hit the ground running for Southampton during our pre-season campaign and he quickly began impressing fans, but naturally, the Premier League step up was always going to be slightly more difficult and the 23-year-old talent is yet to open his club account.
There’s no reason for panic though, as Adams’ overall performances have shown that he’s adjusting to the top flight and the efforts are starting to come. That was certainly true in last weekend’s clash against newly promoted Sheffield United.
Statistics website Whoscored had Adams as our sixth best player on the day, and he managed to get two shots on target from four – and also saw one effort crash off the woodwork.
Speaking to the Daily Echo to reflect further on the game, manager Ralph Hasenhuttl stated that he was delighted to see the improvements he was making on the pitch, and although his first goal is a frustration, he remains very confident it’s only a matter of time before he gets that slice of luck and opens his account.
“It’s unbelievable. The first shot was fantastic and the header was good but that’s something that is special for this team. He’s a little bit unlucky and this luck he must work for, for his first goal. Everybody looks at him and thinks he is working so hard and the moment will come and we will help him. Everybody helps him and that is something special for this team. You can see and you can feel that they are working together and this is fantastic.”
