Southampton whizkid James Ward-Prowse admits he's Portsmouth mad!

Ward-Prowse is desperate to help Saints get their first points of the season at Arsenal today.

The teenager, son of a Portsmouth-based barrister, told the Daily Star: "I was a Portsmouth fan as a kid and have quite a lot of friends down there.

"I played for both clubs at the same time and had to pick who I wanted to sign for.

"I chose Southampton because I thought it was the best move for my career. I have grown to love the club and this is my future, so I am not worried about any stick I get."
