Everton 2-1 Southampton: 5 Hits and Flops
#4 Hit: Mason Holgate
As previously stated, Austin regularly came out second best in his battles with none other than Mason Holgate.
In the team following Phil Jagielka's suspension last week, the 21-year-old was composed in possession and equally calm out of it too - holding his position alongside Michael Keane and remaining firm under pressure whenever Southampton players looked to press.
While Jagielka and new signing Yerry Mina both watched on from the players' box, it's clear to see the Doncaster-born defender was keen to make a positive impression while asserting his starting credentials. A defensive display like this one did his prospects no harm either. Four clearances, a tackle, interception, blocked shot and seven aerial duels won. No fouls committed - not a bad afternoon's work.
