Redmond returns for Southampton as Fraser benched again

Southampton midfielder Nathan Redmond (£6.3m) is back in the starting line-up following injury.

He returns to the side just as Moussa Djenepo (£5.4m) drops out with a knock of his own.

It looks as if Redmond will sit next to Sofiane Boufal (£5.5m) in a central attacking midfield duo behind centre-forward Che Adams (£5.7m).

The return of Kevin Danso (£4.5m) will also be welcome news for Ralph Hasenhüttl, who was forced into playing a back-three with Djenepo as a wing-back in the win over Sheffield United.

Visitors Bournemouth have gone with a 4-4-2 formation which features Ryan Fraser (£7.3m) on the bench for a second match running.

On the flanks of midfield are Josh King (£6.3m) and Harry Wilson (£6.0m) while Callum Wilson (£7.8m) and Dominic Solanke (£5.4m) lead the line.

Also of note is another start at left-back for Diego Rico (£4.1m), who offers better value compared to the likes of Nathan Aké (£4.9m) and Steve Cook (£5.0m).

Southampton XI (4-3-2-1): Gunn; Danso, Bednarek, Vestergaard, Cédric; Højbjerg, Romeu, Ward-Prowse; Boufal, Redmond; Adams.

Bournemouth XI (4-4-2): Ramsdale; Rico, Aké, S Cook, Stacey; J King, Lerma, Billing, H Wilson; Solanke, C Wilson.

    Well played by Bournemouth but that was dire defending. Lazy

      In fairness, the players he's got to work with aren't very good.

      1. Royal5

        Agreed. Where did all the money go? They sold so many talents over the years.

  13. TAT

    Made the transfer of Jota > Callum Wilson minutes before the deadline. Predictably, CW will blank and Jota haul.

    Imagine having a oerfectly fin rV and playing him at LB . .
    And playing a CB at RB.
    Danso struggling at that post, he really is. He's not a full back ffs. Come on, Ralph!

  23. Schliegs

    King is looking really good, dangerous, creative, holding up play and speedy as.

      Shame Dele Alli keeps him out of the England side.

      Southmapton are always woeful and survive

    2. Nomar

      Way too early to call that, Rover.

      This time last season Palace looked doomed, if I recall correctly.

      Southampton look poor tonight but they're the kind of team who can go out next week and beat Spurs.

      1. Wild Rover
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years

        Where are the goals coming from?

        1. Nomar
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          1-0 win innit.

  25. FOO FIGHTER

    Wilson the next bandwagon 🙁

  26. Differential (c)
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 2 days ago

    What has Bertrand done to be so out of favor?! Switching Bednarek for Danso and hoping he does better, come on! Jeez!

  27. Differential (c)
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 2 days ago

    And now we're doing 3 CB's with Cedric and JwP as WingBacks.

    Should be better, but JwP has never been good as a Wingback in the past. Not optimistc at all.

  28. Mike Bassett Fantasy Manage…

    oh wtf Redmond is back 😮

  29. Dacra

    Is TAA + Greenwood > Rico + TAA crazy?

    1. Dacra
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Rico + Abraham..

    2. Super Saints
      • 3 Years

      Haha yes

    3. TheDragon
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Greenwood plays upfront so unless you’ve entered the matrix it’s not possible let alone crazy

      Also TAA -> TAA for a hit isn’t recommended 😉

    4. TheSteel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      No. Do it now
