I must admit I hadn't particularly noticed Tella's pace during any of his brief appearances to date, but notable on the list below from BBC. Good asset, will be interesting to see if we can develop him effectively.

Fastest Premier League players this season
Player Top speed (km/h)
Tariq Lamptey (Brighton) 36.6
Kyle Walker (Man City) 36.6
Nathan Tella (Southampton) 35.6
Oliver Burke (Sheff Utd) 35.2
Aboubakar Kamara (Fulham) 35.2
Dominic Calvert-Lewin (Everton) 35.1
Jack Grealish (Aston Villa) 35.1
Jamal Lewis (Newcastle) 35.1
Harvey Barnes (Leicester) 35.1
Kenny Tete (Fulham) 35.1

I think it'll be interesting to see which position he plays in eventually.  He looks very direct when he comes off the bench, which is great as a contrast to Redmond, but unlikely how Ralph would want him to play if starting.

The stream I was watching was actually really good to be able to hear Ralph’s instructions from the touchline.

You could hear Ralph encouraging him by saying ‘Good, Good!’ and ‘Nathan stay in the middle’, ‘Press now’ etc etc 

I think we will see more from him, might even end up being the go-to sub instead of Obafemi. We all know how much Ralph values speed/pace
