Southampton face Aston Villa in the Premier League today, and Ralph Hasenhuttl has revealed his starting XI for the match.
The Saints go into the clash on the back of an impressive run of form – they have won three and drawn one of their last four matches in the top flight. The Villans, though, will also be confident – they have won four and lost just one themselves in the league so far this term.
In terms of his team selection, it seems that Hasenhuttl has made one big call – he has dropped Nathan Redmond, with Theo Walcott coming in to take his place. Redmond has appeared in four of the team’s five league matches this term, but the Austrian boss clearly feels that on-loan Everton winger Walcott should start instead.
Will Southampton beat Aston Villa?
This appears to be the big talking point amongst the supporters anyway, and they have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts.
Let’s see what the fans had to say about the team selection of Hasenhuttl below
Hasenhuttl has gone Walcott. Big call considering Redmond was ‘man of the match’ last week…
Good to see Moussa Djenepo feature on the bench.#SaintsFC

Redmond drops out. Can’t say I’m surprised. #saintsfc
