Southampton fans have been split of Ward-Prowse in 2019/20

Southampton’s season can really be looked at in two parts as they completely transformed their poor fortune around Christmas to the point where they now almost safe from relegation.

It took a big effort from the management and squad to turn things around after that point, with big wins over Aston Villa and Chelsea around Christmas making things a whole lot rosier for the south coast outfit.

Most recently, an accomplished display against Aston Villa made fans sure that the midfielder was indeed a really valuable asset all along, and the praise for his display shows how highly regarded he is currently.
