Five Saints players that must start vs Inter
Southampton face one of the biggest home matches in their history when they host Inter Milan in the Europa League at St Mary’s on Thursday night.
The Saints are fighting on a number of fronts this season but the club, and especially the fans, want to see the team reach the knockout stages of a European competition.
Following a 1-0 defeat at the San Siro a fortnight ago, Claude Puel will know that his side need to pick up a positive result on the south coast with themselves, Hapoel Be’er Sheva and Inter – who sacked manager Ronald de Boer on Tuesday – separated by just one point in Group K, and Sparta Prague two clear at the summit.
That got us thinking at Football FanCast. Who MUST be in Southampton’s starting XI for the visit of the Italian giants? We take a look at the five men Puel can’t afford to overlook for Thursday’s clash.
