Sitting in the relegation zone having taken just nine points from 14 Premier League games, it is fair to say Southampton have been poor this season.
As a result, Mark Hughes has since lost his job despite the Saints managing to pick up a point against Manchester United in what proved to be his final game in charge as manager.
In the end, though, it was the correct call given how the team have performed with the Welshman having been unable to get the best out of a squad that does boast some good players including Nathan Redmond.
The 24-year-old has gone through some tough spells at St. Mary’s, something that he recently spoke about in an interview with Southampton’s official club website.
In recent weeks, however, his form has certainly improved and there is no reason why he cannot go up another gear as the campaign progresses.
You can have a look at what Southampton supporters are saying on the former Norwich City man below…
Player of season so far hands down

A good article, shows him to be a mature, well rounded individual. I hope he gets his rewards on the pitch.

Personal life can come into play into any way of life, Nathan is human and he’s coming back stronger than ever, just hope that he’s got through that period and is okay! #saintsfc

For what it's worth, I think Redmond has been flipping brilliant this season- one of our best players.

Been class this season, one of the first names on the team sheet now and hopefully Hasenhuttl will start adding goals and assists to his game too!

An in form redz is the best addition to our squad so far this season along with Ings

He’s a totally different player this season, with bags of confidence. The extra work he put in over the summer in the US has paid dividends. So far our stand out player this season. #saintsfc
