It has been a season of highs and lows for Southampton in 2020/21.

After a flying start to the campaign that saw Ralph Hasenhuttl's side briefly occupy top spot in the Premier League, a wretched run of form at the turn of the year - including six straight losses, 10 defeats in 12 games, and a 9-0 drubbing by Manchester United - sent the Saints tumbling down the table.

While their form has hardly been impressive since, Southampton have almost certainly done enough to secure their top-flight status for another year.

Their results in the cups reflect similar inconsistencies, having lost in the second round of the League Cup to second-tier Brentford while reaching the semi-finals of the FA Cup, where they face Leicester City.

As with every squad, some players have excelled for Southampton this season, while others have struggled.

Who is the highest paid player at Southampton?

Danny Ings is not only the top scorer at Southampton but the England striker is also the top earner.

Ings – who earns £75,000 per week according to Spotrac.com, an online team and player contract website – has been one of Southampton's standout players since he first joined the club on loan from Liverpool in 2018 before making the move permanent the following season.

Coincidentally, Ings is joined by a Liverpool loanee as the highest-paid player at Southampton. Much like Ings, Takumi Minamino moved to St Mary's in January  in search of regular football, and the Japanese forward has impressed despite injuries.
