Saints' fringe players have chance to shine

The likes of Rickie Lambert and Adam Lallana may have left Southampton but the club's fringe players could benefit from the exodus.

With a summer of such upheaval, several players leaving and a new manager at the helm, this might be the perfect time for Southampton's forgotten men to stake their claim.

- Krueger: A summer of pain

Saints entertain Bayer Leverkusen in their showpiece and final preseason friendly on Saturday before thoughts turn to Liverpool and the return of the Premier League -- but who might come in from the cold?

Billy Sharp/Emmanuel Mayuka

With Rickie Lambert having departed and Jay Rodriguez still in the treatment room, the role of backup to new striker Graziano Pelle is still well and truly up for grabs. Sam Gallagher played the role well towards the end of last season under Mauricio Pochettino, but was left out of a recent friendly by Ronald Koeman.

A lot of Southampton supporters believe Sharp should be given the chance to prove himself, having never featured for the club in the Premier League despite a big contribution in the Championship promotion season. Mayuka has proved to be a disappointing signing but his pace could be used wide in a 4-3-3.

Lloyd Isgrove

Welsh winger Isgrove had appeared to be one of the academy graduates that had missed the boat first-team-wise, reaching the ripe old age of 21 without seeing much senior action. His loan at Peterborough United last season would have appeared to have indicated the end to his time at St Mary's but it looks like that opinion might have been hasty. Isgrove has featured heavily in preseason friendlies so far under Koeman and been extremely impressive in the wide attacking role. Having been rewarded with a new contract, it would seem that this might be a new start for the winger.

PREMIER LEAGUE PREVIEWS

As we count down to kickoff on Aug. 16, ESPN FC previews all 20 teams in this season's competition. Can Burnley, QPR and Leicester stay up? Will the new signings of Alexis Sanchez, Diego Costa and Adam Lallana help usurp Man City's crown? Will Manchester United get back on track under Louis van Gaal?

Gaston Ramirez

The Uruguayan has not exactly been away from the limelight, but enters his third season at Saints having ambled his way through the first two. There have been glimpses of brilliance from Ramirez and his talent is plain to see, but a combination of injuries and lacklustre performances have seen him struggle to nail down a regular starting spot. With the right application I am certain he could shine in the Premier League, and perhaps just needs a manager to show a little faith in him.

Jack Stephens

With the club looking short at centre-half and Koeman's habit of going with youth, Jack Stephens might be the next from the academy to get a shot at the first team. Stephens had a period on loan with Swindon Town last season and their fans were desperate for him to go back to the County Ground.

Saturday's return to the St Mary's stadium is likely going to give us a few pointers as to how Pochettino's fringe players might now feature in the pecking order under Koeman. This has the potential to be an exciting season, despite the departures of key stars.
