Callum Slattery made his full Premier League debut for Southampton in their 1-1 draw with Burnley at Turf Moor on Saturday afternoon.
Slattery had appeared off the bench in the league against Leicester City and Crystal Palace earlier this year, before being named in the XI against Burnley.
The 19-year-old certainly held his own against the Clarets and played a big role in what was another impressive performance under Ralph Hasenhuttl.
There is no question that the Austrian manager has improved matters since replacing Mark Hughes, and the Saints boss has shown his faith in a number of youngsters.
Southampton will be looking to make it six Premier League matches unbeaten when they host fellow strugglers Cardiff City this weekend.
Fans of the south coast outfit are hopeful that they will be seeing much more of promising teenager Slattery in the remainder of the 2018-19 Premier League campaign.
A selection of the Twitter reaction can be seen below:
Impressed by Slattery. Put himself about and got box to box. Fine tune his composure when making passes and he could be an important player!
