And the former Newcastle man is hoping to use such performances as a springboard to displace Manchester City’s Joe Hart as Roy Hodgson’s go-to goalkeeper. “It was good to keep a clean sheet,” he said. “It was nice to make the save, it is one of those where I haven’t really had that much to do save-wise and it is just important to try and help the lads out as they defended brilliantly in front of me. It is my job when one comes along to make those saves. “I was delighted to have the interest from Southampton. They were brilliant last season, a few have gone out but we have got a lot of good players in. “It is one of them where I have only played two games in the Premier League and it is a fantastic league to be a part of. “It comes down to playing well for Southampton first and foremost – that is what it is all about. If I do all that then we will just have to see what happens with England. “For me personally it is about me working as hard as I can with Dave (Watson, Southampton and England goalkeeping coach) and in the gym and improve myself as a ‘keeper.” Koeman is still without a win after his first two Barclays Premier League games in charge, with his new-look side unable to break down a resolute West Brom defence. Fraser Forster is hoping his move south can see him move up the reckoning in the race to become England’s first-choice goalkeeper – and Southampton boss Ronald Koeman is backing his new signing to do just that. The 26-year-old was signed from Celtic to take over the number one position at St Mary’s and impressed on his home debut in Saturday’s goalless draw with West Brom. In a match where chances were at a premium, Forster made the save of the game as he kept out a late shot from Baggies’ record signing Brown Ideye. James Ward-Prowse came closest when he clipped a post with a free-kick with Forster’s late save vindicating Koeman’s decision to replace Artur Boruc. The Dutchman said: “The goalkeeper is a very good one, we know that because that is the reason that we sign players. He’s 26, and that is a young age for a ‘keeper. “We knew the situation with Boruc, his contract and the fact that he is older and we have to change that. Forster brings qualities and experience and he showed that.” Saints fans lauded Forster with calls of ‘England’s number one’ and Koeman believes that is not something beyond his capabilities. “I can’t say that because I’m not the coach of England,” he added. “I’m the coach of Southampton and I’m happy that he is playing for Southampton. Who plays in the national team is not my job. “Of course he is capable, he was one of the three goalkeepers in the World Cup. If you take three ‘keepers to the World Cup, all the three can play because they are all good. “We like that he will be number one for England, of course, because that is good for himself, good for his experience and finally good for Southampton.” The other goalkeeper on display in the dreary deadlock was Hodgson’s other regular squad member Ben Foster. The 31-year-old started England’s final World Cup group game against Costa Rica and West Brom head coach Alan Irvine is pleased to have his own international-class keeper. “I’m delighted with the one I have got, absolutely delighted,” he said. “He is a terrific goalkeeper and really big personality, and is really important in our dressing room and I would not swap him. “(He has a) great personality, great professional and he is able to get other people going as well and full of enthusiasm and full of energy.” At the other end of the pitch, Irvine was pleased with the impact debutant Ideye made after coming off the bench. “It is early days for him,” he said. “He is a good finisher and if he gets into positions where he gets chances then he will score goals. It is a good start. That is really encouraging – there is more to come from him.” Press Association
Press Association The Foxes have shocked the Barclays Premier League this season and could go top if they win at Newcastle on Saturday. If Arsenal also drop points at West Brom, victory will take Leicester top before current leaders Manchester City face Liverpool in the late kick-off. They are third, just a point behind City, but are set to face them, Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea before the end of the year a nd Ranieri is wary before they reach his pre-season target of 40 points. “We know every match is a trap,” he said. “I know there will be some matches when we don’t take a point but maybe the next we’ll take a point. We are looking for 15 points and we are fighting for these 15 points. After, maybe we can change our minds. “I want to understand this team. We have played 12 matches and after January we can speak more clearly about Leicester.” Jamie Vardy will equal Ruud van Nistelrooy’s Barclays Premier League record if he recovers from a hip injury to score in a 10th straight game, with Van Nistelrooy having set the record while at Manchester United in 2003. Vardy broke into the England squad in the summer and Ranieri wants Danny Drinkwater and Marc Albrighton to follow him. Manchester United rookie Jesse Lingard and Tottenham’s Ryan Mason were squad replacements for Tuesday’s win over France after Vardy, Michael Carrick and Fabian Delph dropped out injured. Mason has started just four league matches compared to Lingard’s one while midfielders Drinkwater and Albrighton have played in every Foxes game a nd Ranieri wants the pair to get recognition. “I hope so because if these two players like Drinkwater and Albrighton can follow him (Vardy) it means Leicester are at the top,” he added. Boss Claudio Ranieri has warned Leicester they could be walking into a trap ahead of their games with the big boys.
Manchester: PUMA and Manchester City have revealed their 2019/20 home and away kits, the first designs of their partnership, which pay tribute to Manchester’s industrial and cultural heritage.Following Manchester City’s success last season in men’s, women’s and academy football, the club will push for new honours this season, wearing uniquely designed kits that also feature the club’s 125th anniversary crest.The 2019/20 home kit draws inspiration from Manchester’s industrial heritage, celebrating the true grit, fight, and character that emerged from the cotton mills of Manchester.The woven jacquard wave pattern, running through the shirt, is a visual representation of the looms which were integral to the industrial revolution in Manchester. The iconic City blue is highlighted with purple, a colour previously used in club kits, and is used on the home shirt for the first time.The 2019/20 away kit celebrates the city’s “Madchester” years, a period of extraordinary cultural activity in the late 1980s and early 1990s. The kit is directly inspired by former nightclub, The Haçienda, which was once an epicentre for emerging music, bands, DJs, and artists.“The partnership between Manchester City and PUMA goes beyond football. We want the club’s global fans and local Mancunians to all feel invested in this, and it starts with combining our very creative kit designs with authentic stories from Manchester’s history and music scene,” said Adam Petrick, PUMA’s Global Brand Marketing Director.
