SAINTS returns for the second instalment of the week when Southampton host Aston Villa in the Premier League on Saturday.

The popular matchday programme features an in-depth interview with Jack Stephens, with Saints having kept five clean sheets in seven games since the defender came into the side.

Now approaching the 10-year anniversary of his arrival from Plymouth, the Cornishman outlines his ambition to win silverware with the club after securing a place in the fifth round of the Emirates FA Cup.

Elsewhere, Alex McCarthy is the subject of our ‘Getting to Know’ feature, with topics including childhood heroes, dealing with mistakes and picking his dream back four.

Manager Ralph Hasenhüttl and skipper James Ward-Prowse discuss the team’s recent form and the collective desire of the team to return to winning ways in the Premier League against Villa.

Franny Benali also previews the visit of one of the top-flight’s most improved sides this season, while Sam Tighe takes a tactical look at what’s responsible for Villa’s progress in 2020/21.

Club historian Barry Webb looks at the growth of Saints Archive, a Facebook group connecting fans with fond memories of yesteryear, and our Junior Members section offers a host of quizzes and games for our younger supporters to test their knowledge.
