Moi Elyounoussi opens up on his long journey back into the Southampton first team as SAINTS returns for tonight’s Premier League clash with Leicester.

The popular matchday programme includes a feature interview with the Norwegian international, who admits he has tackled the biggest challenge of his career since signing for Saints in 2018.

Since then, he has had to continually work to prove he has what it takes to start games in the Premier League, having finally established himself in Ralph Hasenhüttl’s squad.

Elsewhere, the boss reflects on a disappointing return to action since the international break, but sees this week’s St Mary’s double-header as an ideal opportunity to get back to winning ways.

Sam Tighe provides a tactical analysis on how to stop the Foxes, who are edging closer to top form, with particular reference to Jamie Vardy, who continues to trouble defences up and down the country with his menacing runs in behind.

Franny Benali signs off with his traditional column, remembering his iconic goal against Leicester at The Dell in 1997 – the one and only of his long Saints career.

There is the usual mix of features for supporters young and old, from our interactive Junior Members quiz to our historians’ nostalgic look back on the past.

Supporters can pick up their Leicester programme from one of the numerous sellers outside St Mary’s and inside the stadium concourse, enhancing your matchday experience for just £3.50.
