Ward-Prowse, 26, has been at Southampton his entire career after joining their youth academy all the way back in 2003.

Best known for his ability to convert dead-ball kicks, even Ward-Prowse would have been taken back by how close he came to scoring from a corner against Arsenal.

After battling it out for a place in the FA Cup’s Fifth Round, the 26-year-old midfielder rattled the bar in a piece of play which would have undoubtedly seen keeper Bernd Leno breathe a huge sigh of relief.
