4. FC Southampton

FC Southampton is surely a historical club but this season's performances cannot be compared with any other accomplishment.

Southampton were founded in 1885. In these one hundred and twenty seven years of history Southampton have won just two major milestones.

First the FA Cup in 1976 against Manchester United at Wembley stadium and the second the runners up position in the championship of 1983-1984.

Southampton are enjoying a season so far that could be another milestone in its history. In addition to this, the last time that Southampton had three of its players been called up to the England National Team was back in 1986. 

Jay Rodriguez, Rickie Lambert and Adam Lallana are the three players - more evidence that this season is going to be a memorable one for the Saints.
