Ings’ contribution for Saints during the past season was huge as he scored 25 goals in all competitions and became the attacking threat that his team could rely on.

He deserves so much credit for putting in the hard work to get his body right once again to enable him to play consistently throughout the grind of an English campaign.

There were some question marks over the £20m fee that Saints shelled out to Liverpool to sign him permanently following a loan spell where it seemed that he couldn’t play more than two games on the bounce.

However, that fee now seems like excellent business and will continue to look good if Ings can still be Ralph Hasenhuttl’s main man into the future.

Moussa Djenepo burst onto the scene early in the 2019/20 season by scoring two fantastic goals in separate away games at Brighton and Sheffield United.

They were two very different efforts but really showed off his ability to the rest of the league. His brilliant solo strike is the one that is nominated for the Goal of the Season here.

His potential looks to be huge and Saints will have a superb creative player on their hands if they can work on his physical state ahead of 2020/21.
