Southampton

Armstrong impressed by Redmond's form

5th February 2019, 13:46 by Tom Hill

Southampton playmaker Stuart Armstrong insists winger Nathan Redmond is 'invaluable' to the side after a string of impressive displays.

Redmond, 24, has been a key member of the Saints first team this season after featuring in every one of the club's Premier League games.

He scored his third goal of the season during the 1-1 draw with Burnley on Saturday, with Ashley Barnes grabbing a late equaliser.

The former Norwich man has now scored six goals in his last 10 games in all competitions and Armstrong insists he continues to lead by example.

He told the Daily Echo: "I think everyone can see how talented a player he is in training and in games of late.

"His goal [against Burnley] was fantastic. The way he moved the ball and then a quick shot into the corner of the net with so much power, with so little back-lift. He is a very good player to have in our team.
