James Ward-Prowse

Southampton captain James Ward-Prowse is closing down on Premier League Free Kick record.

The Englishman has been a dead ball specialist throughout his career and netted a stunner of a free kick in the Saints 2-2 draw against Crystal Palace on Wednesday night.

In netting the stunner, the Saint captain has now scored 11 free kicks in the English top-flight and is now fourth in the overall ranking. Only David Beckham (18), Gianfranco Zola (12), and Thierry Henry (12) have scored more free-kicks than James.

With a chunk of games left in the season, one can bet that the player might notch a few free kicks to close down on the leaders of the pile starting with their next game against Brentford.
