Southampton’s new signing, Che Adams, is yet to open his account for the club despite coming close on several occasions this season.
The 23-year-old, who joined the Saints from Birmingham for £15m in the summer, has started all five opening Premier League fixtures, but is yet to find the back of the net for the south coast club.
On Saturday, Adams put in a strong display against his former side, Sheffield United, coming agonisingly close to his first goal on two separate occasions, but ultimately just missing the target.
Saints boss Ralph Hasenhuttl remains confident that the 23-year-old’s maiden strike is just around the corner, however, claiming the forward has just been “unlucky” so far.
“He’s a little bit unlucky and this luck he must work for for his first goal,” said the Austrian.
“Everybody looks at him and thinks he is working so hard and the moment will come and we will help him. Everybody helps him and that is something special for this team.
“You can see and you can feel that they are working together and this is fantastic.” (via Daily Echo).
Although Adams is yet to open his account for the Saints, he is still getting in the right positions and coming close to finding the target, which is obviously one of the biggest factors when it comes to scoring goals.
The ex-Birmingham front man scored 22 goals in the Championship last season playing in a much more limited side than Southampton, so should he continue to work hard and forge the opportunities, it’s surely only a matter of time before he finally breaks his duck.
