Predicting the Southampton Lineup in the Championship

Arlo Gibbons


Southampton FC has officially been relegated from the Premier League, and now attention turns to their return to the Premiership. The Saints’ roster is expected to look much different next season, with several key players rumored to be leaving. The team’s management will need to make critical decisions, including filling out the squad, backroom staff, and manager. In terms of goalkeeper, Gavin Bazunu is likely to be the starter, despite his disappointing performance in the Premier League. The center-back position will be difficult to fill after the likely departures of Mohammed Salisu and Armel Bella-Kotchap, with Lyanco and Jan Bednarek expected to start. Full-backs Kyle Walker-Peters and Romain Perraud are also likely to leave, while Tino Livramento and Juan Larios will likely start. Defensive midfield is expected to be anchored by James Ward-Prowse, who may leave, while Roméo Lavia’s future with the team is uncertain.
