Southampton’s newest recruit, Kyle Walker-Peters, gives an extended interview inside SAINTS as the matchday programme returns for the visit of Aston Villa.

The Tottenham loanee discusses his upbringing at Spurs, why Saints was the right club for him and how he hopes to make a positive impression in his time at St Mary’s.

Elsewhere, Jannik Vestergaard reflects on a frustrating afternoon last time out against Burnley, while manager Ralph Hasenhüttl addresses the team’s home form and how to improve it.

Franny Benali talks up the importance of capitalising on games against sides embroiled in the Premier League survival scrap, and why he’s pleased to see former Saint Matt Targett seize his chance at Villa Park.

Bleacher Report’s Sam Tighe continues to provide statistical insight on the opposition, explaining why Villa are an unpredictable outfit capable of anything, and how stopping talisman Jack Grealish is easier said than done, even for top-flight defences.

As always, SAINTS offers something for all ages, with a welcome dose of nostalgia in our history section and a host of quizzes and games for our younger readers.

Supporters can pick up issue 17 of the matchday programme from one of the numerous sellers outside St Mary’s and inside the stadium concourse, priced at £4.

SAINTS is also available to buy online, either as individual editions or as a seasonal subscription. Visit saintsprogrammes.com.
