Recently, the Premier League witnessed a ‘6 point’ match between the two teams participating in the relegation bɑttle, Nottingham Forest and Southampton.
With home advantage, Nottingham completely dominated the opponent in the first half and led with a score of 3-1.
Entering the second half, both teams created a spectacular score chase.
Despite scoring 2 more goals, but Southampton also let the home team get 1 goal, thereby suffering a defeat with a score of 3-4 in the end.
Losing the game, but many Soton players were still able to ‘hold their heads up’ as they delivered a truly impressive performance on the pitch.
Typically the case of James Ward-Prowse, who as usual, still fulfills the duties of a central midfielder with great contributions in both defense and ɑttack.
Statistics from Statman Dave show that, except for the goal on the penalty spot, Ward-Prowse also shines with 6 passes to create scoring opportunities for teammates, 1 assist situation and 6 accurate crosses.
The England midfielder had a total of 83 touches against Nottingham, achieving a pass accuracy rate of about 90% – including 15/17 passes to the right address in the bottom third of the opponent’s field. In addition, he also has 6 ball recovery situations, 1 release situation and 1 interception.
Ward-Prowse has long been tipped as one of the targets being targeted by Man Utd to improve the midfield, and with Jude Bellingham on the way to Real Madrid, it is clear that the Red Devils have more reason to turn to Ward-Prowse.
In the context that Southampton will almost certainly be relegated, next summer, Man Utd is expected to have the opportunity to recruit Ward-Prowse for a fee significantly lower than the £ 50 million that Soton is asking.Manchester United
