Sofiane Boufal gives an honest assessment of his Southampton career to date and explains why he’s so determined to produce his best form in the Premier League, as SAINTS returns to St Mary’s for the visit of Chelsea on Sunday.

The Moroccan maverick is the subject of the programme’s feature interview, in which he also discusses his relationship with Ralph Hasenhüttl and the Saints supporters.

Cover star Danny Ings relives his south coast derby heroics in our From the Dressing Room column, while Saints icon Franny Benali also reflects on a landmark victory at Fratton Park.

There is the traditional helping of features for all the family, celebrating our unique history whilst catering for our junior supporters with eight pages of quizzes and games, including a special Q&A with a legend of the modern era, Rickie Lambert.
