Southampton defender Jan Bednarek believes midfielder James Ward-Prowse has the best delivery of anyone in the Premier League, following another set-piece masterclass from the team's captain.

Ward-Prowse produced the in-swinging corner that allowed Bednarek to head Saints in front against Manchester United, before netting his third direct free-kick of the season to double the lead.

Saints ultimately lost the game thanks to a second-half comeback from their opponents, but Bednarek was still glowing in his assessment of his teammate.

"He has got the best delivery in the league, so we have to use it and that's what we are trying to do," he said.

"We practise a lot during the week on set-pieces and I think we have scored a few goals this season, so I think that has to be our strength. Prowsey delivering the ball is a great opportunity to create chances."

On the opening goal, Bednarek added: "We practised it [on Saturday] and it's a danger zone. Prowsey delivered a great ball, I flicked it in, and it was a goal. It's nice, but it's not enough. We still have to work hard to get something and that's what we'll do."
