English Premier League Countdown

The countdown Part 2: English Premier League returns Let’s get a recap on Arsenal and Southampton as beautiful game returns on June 17. For good or for bad, the Premier League is back. Sure, its return has been questioned comprehensively and the arguments look set to continue in the weeks and months ahead.

Ok, the run of seven wins from 11 games following that thrashing from late November to January might have had something to do with it. But, Southampton are currently just seven points above the relegation zone and with nine games to go, Hasenhuttl will be demanding his young side implement his high-pressing style of play if they are to avoid the dreaded drop.

“I think it’s normal that there are more important things around us than football to focus on and then it’s not so easy to bring the focus back on the pitch if you need to,” he said. Rousing. That’ll get them playing, Ralph …
