Southampton took a 2-0 victory over Crystal Palace at the weekend as goals from Danny Ings and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg secured us the victory at Selhurst Park, but it appears some fans have now run out of patience with Charlie Austin.

With Southampton’s issues in front of goal in recent times, there’s already plenty of frustration amongst the fan base and a number of fans feel we’d be better off persevering with Manolo Gabbiadini and getting his confidence properly up and running given we know how he can finish.

Austin didn’t help himself in this one as he had a gilt-edged opportunity to score from 12 yards as we were awarded a penalty but his tame effort was easily saved by goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey and that stuck with fans as they took to social media to discuss the match following the fulltime whistle.

Like many, he seems to continue to suffer from confidence issues especially after the season we had last year and having opened his account for the season in the recent EFL Cup victory over Brighton, he could’ve done with that one going in to give himself a further boost.

Hopefully, he’s firing sooner rather than later though as we know what he’s capable of when on form.
