FULL TIME: Norwich 0-3 Saints

Football is BACK! 😇

FINALLY! Premier League football is back for Southampton, with Ralph Hasenhüttl's side travelling to Norwich City at 6pm (BST).


Three points for Saints at Carrow Road could see them rise to as high as 12th place, level on points with Everton and ten points clear of the drop zone. 


A win for Norwich would see them close the gap on 19th placed Aston Villa to just two points, as they look for survival.
