Saints kick off the 2013/14 season with a trip to West Brom before a home game against Sunderland and a trip to Norwich City.

And with newly promoted Crystal Palace and Hull City to face in September and November respectively, Lallana is confident there are some 'winnable games' in the early part of the campaign.

"It's a bit different to last season's fixtures," Lallana told the club's official website.

"It's pretty exciting when the fixtures come out, and now I'm just looking forward to the first game of the season away at West Brom.

"You'd say there are some winnable games in there, but that doesn't mean you're guaranteed three points.

"Last season everyone was bound to be excited about the fixtures and, with the tough start we got, people kind of wrote us off but we did quite well even though we didn't get results.

"This year it feels slightly different - you play every team twice at some point in the season, so we're more concentrated and focused on getting back for pre-season and getting our fitness up to the level it needs to be ahead of that game at West Brom."

Southampton failed to beat any of their opening four opponents last season and were defeated by Steve Clarke's men at both St Mary's and the Hawthorns.

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
