Southampton manager Mauricio Pochettino has stated he is putting his trust in the youth of Southampton for this season, instead of buying more players, according to Sky Sports.
The Saints have some promising talent within their first team, as the home-grown talent has been grabbing the headlines on how many will actually make it on the plane to Brazil for the 2014 World Cup.
With Englishman Adam Lallana as Southampton captain, the Hampshire side sit fifth in the Premier League, having picked up wins against Liverpool and Swansea, along with picking up a valuable point at Old Trafford last month.
Pochettino sees the main success through the amount of young players he has within his squad; "We have a lot of young players coming through the ranks, and they are making a case to be in the senior team."
The Saints' next match is away to Chelsea, were they drew 2-2 last season; with Luke Shaw and Nathaniel Clyne both putting in solid performances.
The 41-year-old went on to say that the future is looking bright for the club and possibly for England with the amount of youth players coming through into the first team;
"We are not worried about the depth of our squad because we have a lot of young players that can guarantee us a very good future, in the immediate future."
Southampton have always been known for producing great talent, bringing through the likes of Gareth Bale, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Alan Shearer over the decades.
The Saints have a busy month ahead of them, with games against Chelsea, Man City and Tottenham all within December, then start the new year with another game against Chelsea, a chance for the youths to step up.
