Southampton were given the Friday evening slot for this weekend’s Premier League clash against Eddie Howe’s Bournemouth side and manager Ralph Hasenhuttl would’ve been looking for us to register back to back victories following the earlier win over Sheffield United.
Sadly the game went completely against us as our first half performance was woeful and our Austrian gaffer knew the 45 minute spell had cost us.
Coming out of the halftime break trailing 2-0, James Ward-Prowse’s penalty gave us hope, but we were unable to find the leveller and Bournemouth made it 3-1 in stoppage time – but at least the second half showing gave some positives.
Statistics website Whoscored only had two of our players rated above seven, so by default, Oriol Romeu was our Man of the Match with a score of 7.70 and he was quickly followed in second place by JWP on a straight 7.00.
Completing the top five were Sofiane Boufal (6.93), Nathan Redmond (6.91) and Che Adams (6.66).
Not the result anyone wanted, but onto the next one.
