Southampton Football Club hosts away challengers in the iconic St Mary's Stadium, which they moved into in 2001. Since then, The Saints have seen relegation and a return to the Premier League from strength to strength, becoming Premier League regulars while their bitter South Coasats derby rivals Portsmouth languish in the lower leagues.

Celebrating 8 years of being in the Premier League, Southampton are widely regarded as a stable mid-table club with the potential to become something more with a little bit more investment and development. Known for their finesse in the transfer market, unearthing gems such as Dejan Lovren and Virgil van Dijk and turning them into massive profits for the club, Southampton can also turn to their famed youth academy to consistently produce the best British talent, with Gareth Bale of Real Madrid being part of their star-studded alumni.

Southampton are also not afraid to invest in British talent, with their prolific striker Danny Ings consistently getting on the scoring sheet, manager Ralph Hasenhuttl will definitely have a reliable player that he can count on to build his team around. Southampton are ultimately a club with huge potential to upset the established footballing order of English football, and their ultimate test will be to combine their transfer nous, grasp of youth development, and tactical prowess to lead them to greater heights.
