Southampton host Fulham on Wednesday night in the Premier League and it’s a colossal fixture where someone could make themselves a hero.
The Saints currently sit 18th in the league table and a point from safety, while Fulham are seven points adrift of them in 19th.
Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side are without a win in their last four league matches and know that a victory could take them out of the bottom three.
Southampton goalkeeper Angus Gunn is certainly someone that could make himself a hero after what has been a slow start to life at St Mary’s.
They signed him for £13.5million (Sky Sports) in the summer and he’s mainly had to watch from the bench.
But the 23-year-old did make his second league appearance of the season in the last game and is surely in contention to pip teammate Alex McCarthy to the starting position against Fulham.
Gunn is a highly-rated shot-stopper that has had to be patient waiting for his opportunities, but perform against Fulham he will be a hero and really arrive in the Premier League.
The England Under-21 international has proven himself to be a top goalkeeper in the Premier League and the jump up to the top flight this season hasn’t been completely smooth.
But the Saints have a very promising talent in net that should only improve and Wednesday is huge for him.
