Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl pulled few punches as he spoke to the media following the defeat to Cardiff City on Saturday.
Despite effectively dominating the game at St Mary’s Stadium, defensively we threw it away once again much like the previous encounter, and despite the performance, the disappointment far overshadowed any positives this time around.
Even statistics website Whoscored couldn’t credit the overall performance in their match ratings which I do find incredibly harsh, but again the late defensive capitulation probably explains why only three players received a score of seven of above.
Nathan Redmond took their top rating for Southampton with a score of 7.46 for his individual efforts, and Jack Stephens (7.10) and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg (7.06) completed the top three.
In terms of the top five, Yan Valery took fourth spot with 6.91 and Jannik Vestergaard was way down on 6.63 for fifth.
By comparison, the visitors had five players with seven scores.
Onto the next one.
