Maya Yoshida shifted to left-back during Southampton's match against QPR yesterday and was successful in the role.
Matt Targett picked up an injury in the first half and Florin Gardos replaced him, but it was Yoshida who slid over to left-back while Gardos was utilized centrally. Yoshida was great in the win, picking up the game winning assist and a clean sheet. He finished with 16 fantasy points, which was nice to see for fantasy managers after a negative six point performance last week(due to a yellow card and four fouls). Yoshida is generally useful in fantasy when he starts, and we would expect him to start again next week. There is a chance that Matt Targett and Toby Alderweireld both return for next weekend, in which case it's worth monitoring Yoshida's starting status. Feb 8 - 11:37 AM
