With seven assists so far this campaign, (the division’s best) Fraser has been one of the league’s most inform players. In comparison, Chelsea star Eden Hazard’s best season finished with the Belgian notching nine assists come season’s end, and in December Ryan Fraser is only two off that total.

Eddie Howe delivers Liverpool warning

Eddie Howe delivers Liverpool warning Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe has warned Liverpool of the attacking threat his forwards pose ahead of the two sides meeting each other this weekend, TEAMtalk report. Bournemouth returned to winning ways with a 2-1 victory against Huddersfield on Tuesday night, thanks to two goals from Callum Wilson and Ryan Fraser. Callum Wilson already has three goals to his name in the Premier League this season and is the league’s third top goal-scorer so far. Jurgen Klopp’s side travel to the Vitality Stadium to take on Bournemouth at the weekend and the German’s defenders will need to be at their best if they are to keep the likes of Wilson quiet. However, the odds look in Liverpool’s favour ahead of the showdown, with the Merseyside club having conceded the fewest amount of goals (5) so far this campaign. Ahead of the clash, Howe spoke of the attacking threat that Callum Wilson and Ryan Fraser in particular pose ahead of their weekend clash against Liverpool as his side look to beat that tricky Liverpool defense. “Callum’s is a really good finish from a quick ball in from Ryan and then trademark us really for the second goal, an excellent move and finish from Ryan. I was pleased to see our attacking play looking so dangerous early in the game.” “Ryan has been an attacking threat all season for us. He is a dynamic player, his set-piece delivery is very good, I think sometimes that gets lost, a number of goals have come from that. We are pleased with him, pleased with all of the attacking players.” “I think we have to focus very quickly on Liverpool now. It is that sort of month where it is game after game after game and a relentless schedule, so let’s try and use this win to give us confidence to perform well against Liverpool.

Ryan Fraser racked up a goal and an assist in Scotaland's international break win over Albania. That sort of language points towards a place on the bench to me, with Jordon Ibe probably getting the nod. Howe also confirmed that Josh King has returned from his own international exploits unscathed.

Southampton. Ryan Fraser 42'. Charlie Austin61'. Bournemouth started slowly but then forced Fraser Forster into two fantastic saves, whilst they were 35' It may not be the biggest derby in the Premier League, or even on the South Coast itself, but incidents like that will certainly change the perspective.

Having joined from Aberdeen in 2013 for £300,000 the Scotsman has transitioned from pacey prospect to a tricky winger in his sixth season on the South Coast.

Speaking in the Summer about his aspirations for the coming season, the winger is quoted by the Bournemouth Echo as saying:

“I don’t want to be a bit-part player. I want to be the game changer who takes it by the scruff of the neck and gets on the ball a lot more to make things happen.”

“I feel like in past seasons I may have set up a couple of goals here and there and scored a few here and there.”

“I only scored five goals last season and want to try to get a lot more than that.”

“I think it is going to be a big change for me this season to try to stamp my authority on games and go from there.”

Fraser and co will hope to continue their good form against title challenger Liverpool in an exciting affair at the Vitality Stadium on Saturday.

Saints duo heading for January exit.
Ralph Hasenhüttl is wasting little time when it comes to making his mark on the Southampton squad. The Austrian tactician has reportedly already identified two players that he has no use for on the south coast, namely Steven Davis and Fraser Forster. Davis has been a Saint since 2012, and has made 223 appearances in his time at the club. However, falling down the pecking order has made playing time hard to come by for the Northern Irishman, and now a move to Glasgow Rangers seems to be in the offing. Forster has had a torrid 12 months, being dropped after a series of poor performances for Alex McCarthy. The former deputy took the gloves and has shown no signs of relinquishing them, and the signing of Angus Gunn from Manchester City seems to have made Forster third choice at St Mary’s. There are a number of Championship sides on the brink of promotion runs who could use another goalkeeper, including Leeds United and Aston Villa – possible destinations for Forster.
