James Ward-Prowse Delivers First Half Masterclass As Southampton Go 3-0 Up Vs Aston Villa

Southampton currently lead Aston Villa 3-0 in the Premier League and it's thanks to a set piece masterclass from James Ward-Prowse.

The Saints travelled to Villa Park on the back of a 2-0 victory over Everton last weekend and Ward-Prowse has ran the show.

He delivered an inch-perfect cross for Jannik Vestergaard to head home the opener.

But the Southampton captain turned on the style to double his side's lead, curling a lovely free-kick over the wall and past Emiliano Martinez.

Ward-Prowse fancied his chances again just before half-time and once again went to the left, leaving Martinez stranded once again.

It means Southampton are now comfortable 3-0 leaders with the game likely wrapped up.

Ward-Prowse's ability from a deadball is well known and Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola thinks he's the best in England.

Speaking following a game against Southampton two seasons ago, he remarked: "We played with the ball so good but not without the ball. We were not stable behind. We concede a lot of corner kicks and with the best taker in the league [James Ward-Prowse] like Southampton had."

Do you think James Ward-Prowse is the bet set piece taker in the Premier League?
