Southampton are on a decidedly poor run of form at the moment, with a misfiring attack underpinning Ralph Hasenhuttl’s big issue.
Although they recorded a decent victory last night against the Premier League’s in-form team in AFC Bournemouth, they are still just two points from the relegation zone and had lost four of their last five before last night.
Despite this result, the Austrian manager does not have Mohammed Elyounoussi to thank for this change in fortune.
He was once again disappointing last night, and despite being handed a SofaScore rating of 7.0, he was actually rather useless once again.
Despite these numbers outlining an all-around disappointing display, creatively he also offered little to break down the stubborn Cherries.
With each passing game, he seems to prove the long-standing claims that football analyst Ben Wells relayed from supporters: he is too “one-dimensional”.
This is not just a problem from this season though, as Elyounoussi is yet to really kick on his career at all on the south coast.
He has been given plenty of chances now by Hasenhuttl, and yet lets him down on every occasion.
Last night marked a great opportunity to showcase what talents he does have, but yet again failed to hit the mark.
Time might finally be up for the toothless winger who has offered next to nothing since joining in 2018 for a mouth-watering £16m.
