Southampton's Jan Bednarek praises teammate James Ward-Prowse's set-piece

Southampton defender Jan Bednarek believes the team's captain James Ward-Prowse is an outstanding player following his exceptional set-piece at the weekend.

Ward-Prowse's corner led Bednarek to open the scoreline to put Southampton in the lead against Manchester United and then he found the back of the net himself through a phenomenal free-kick.

However, the visitors had the upper hand in the end and maintained their unbeaten run away from home with goals from Bruno Fernandes and a brace from Edinson Cavani who came of the bench to seal the deal for the Red Devils.

"He has got the best delivery in the league, so we have to use it and that's what we are trying to do," he told the club's official website.

"We practise a lot during the week on set-pieces and I think we have scored a few goals this season, so I think that has to be our strength. Prowsey delivering the ball is a great opportunity to create chances."

Bednarek also mentioned regarding the first goal: "We practised it [on Saturday] and it's a danger zone.

"Prowsey delivered a great ball, I flicked it in, and it was a goal. It's nice, but it's not enough. We still have to work hard to get something and that's what we'll do."
