Armstrong has uncertain future at Southampton, Hasenhuttl’s treatment to blame

Stuart Armstrong finds himself on the periphery at Southampton and could be on his way out in January as a result. The 27-year-old has been short of playing time under Ralph Hasenhuttl despite Southampton’s lack of goals in the Premier League (eight games, eight goals), so it’s hard to see Armstrong staying at St Mary’s in 2020.

The Scotland international has made six league appearances this season, but they’ve all come from the bench. Armstrong has found himself behind Oriol Romeu, James Ward-Prowse and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg in the midfield pecking order while Sofiane Boufal has been preferred in an advanced role too.
