Southampton need Sadio Mane to shine over the Christmas period.

This time last year, Southampton endured a miserable end to November and beginning to December in the league, before embarking on a positive set of results over Christmas, and they will be hoping history repeats itself.

The Saints have picked up just one point from the last 12 available, which has seen them slip away from European contention, and things don’t appear to get any easier with matches against Tottenham, Arsenal and West Ham to come.

However, it was Sadio Mane that sprung to life at this point in 2014, scoring three times in three matches as the club took seven points from a possible nine, and Ronald Koeman might look to the Senegal international once again for inspiration.
