Southampton legend Matt Le Tissier names his Saints XI since their return to the Premier League

There is very little "Le God" could do wrong in our eyes. But, do you agree with him on this one?

You'd be hard-pressed to find a figure like Matt Le Tisser in the modern game of football. Before you make a joke, I wasn't having a dig at his paunch. <!-- ######## START FLOATED VIDEO SNIPPET ######## -->

A one-club player who showed unbending loyalty to a "small" club like Southampton while offering such a consistent level of football mastery which deserved more plaudits, Le God is still a hero to many Saints fans across the globe.

So when Le Tiss talks, you listen. But, will you agree? Below, he lists his best Saints line-up since their return to the Premier League in 2012.

Some notable exclusions include Ryan Bertrand, who made the Premier League team of the season for 2014-15. But, Luke Shaw is a tremendous talent so it's understandable. Saying that, it's a travesty that Danny Fox wasn't considered for the left back berth.

Graziano Pelle's omission for Rickie Lambert will also provide some debate. But, I don't think Saints' love for Lambert has waned despite his move to his beloved Liverpool last summer.

So, what do you think? Leave your teams below!
