When building a Fantasy Premier League squad, knowing the set-piece takers for each club can give managers the edge over mini-league rivals.
Ahead of 2019/20, The Scout analyses which players to target.
After making just six appearances for former manager Mark Hughes in 2018/19, the midfielder became a key influence for Hasenhuttl.
Ward-Prowse took 75 of Southampton's 115 corners after the Austrian was appointed in Gameweek 16.
His total of 22 successful corners in that period was the joint-fifth highest in FPL.
Ward-Prowse created 30 chances from set-pieces last season, a total bettered by only seven players in FPL.
Having produced a team-leading tally of 46 chances, he was very unfortunate not to claim a single assist all season.
Southampton struggled to capitalise on their set-pieces under Hasenhuttl.
But only five of those efforts came from free-kicks or corners, a total that only bettered the three of relegated Huddersfield Town.
They particularly lacked an aerial threat in such situations.
The 10 headed shots from set-pieces by Jannik Vestergaard (£5.0m) was a team-leading figure over the entire campaign.
Again, it was Ward-Prowse who was the most impressive performer from dead-ball situations.
He scored two of his seven direct free-kicks, second only to the three of James Maddison (£7.0m) in FPL.
Danny Ings (£6.0m) looks set to be Southampton's spot-kick taker in the season ahead.
He took and scored all three of his spot-kicks while on loan from Liverpool in 2018/19 and has joined on a permanent deal.
Ward-Prowse is their back-up option. He stepped up and converted Southampton’s only other penalty, against Leicester City in Gameweek 22.
