Graziano Pelle ban puts Koeman's striker situation in spotlight at Saints

Graziano Pelle misses Southampton's trip to Manchester City this weekend through suspension.

If Ronald Koeman is seeking conclusive evidence Southampton need to sign a striker in the January transfer window it could hit him straight between the eyes at Manchester City on Saturday.

Southampton travel to the Premier League title favourites knowing their bid for a first win at the Etihad in more than a decade will be severely hampered by the absence of top-scorer Graziano Pelle.

Pelle can be no more than a frustrated spectator after picking up his fifth yellow card of the season in last weekend's...

Ronald Koeman must sort Southampton after international woe

Ronald Koeman claimed Southampton deserved a penalty in their 1-0 defeat to Stoke.

Southampton boss Ronald Koeman was used to balancing the demands of club and country during the Dutchman's illustrious playing career, but needs to find a way to solve his players' post-international malaise.

Southampton have not won a Premier League match on the back of an international break since October 2014. That poor record continued as their eight-game unbeaten streak came to a shuddering halt in Saturday's 1-0 defeat at home to Stoke.

It is a pattern which is threatening to undermine Koeman's...

Steven Davis the key man for Southampton against Stoke

Ronald Koeman praises the world's support for France and feels Stoke City are one of the better technical sides in the league.

Southampton's flair players have taken most of the plaudits during their recent ascent up the Premier League table, but unsung hero Steven Davis could be the key to extending their winning run against Stoke on Saturday.

While Graziano Pelle, Sadio Mane and Dusan Tadic are quickly emerging as one of the country's most feared forward lines, Davis' imperious form has gone largely under the radar.

The Northern Ireland international will not win too many votes from supporters when it comes to selecting...

Anfield atmosphere among worst in Premier League as fans give verdicts

The ESPN FC crew discuss fans leaving early in matches and our match-goers believe the Premier League can improve.

What's it really like to attend a Premier League match? Many watch from afar and don't know, so we polled our ESPN FC match-going bloggers -- the guys in the stands week in, week out -- to find out how they rate the atmosphere and experience.

They didn't hold back. Not surprisingly, our Arsenal blogger considered the Emirates too corporate while our Liverpool blogger didn't hold back when asked about the atmosphere at Anfield.

Dusan Tadic and Ryan Bertrand excel for Southampton in win at Sunderland

Southampton boss Ronald Koeman discusses whether his side can finish in the top four.

When Southampton reached the FA Cup final in 2003, losing 1-0 to Arsenal in Cardiff, much of their success was due to the left-sided partnership between Wayne Bridge and Chris Marsden.

Fast forward 12 years and Ryan Bertrand and Dusan Tadic are helping supporters relive those glory days under Gordon Strachan. For Winchester boy Bridge, who went on to enjoy an impressive career with Chelsea, Manchester City and England, read Bertrand.

Like his fellow ex-Stamford Bridge star, Bertrand is a full-back...
