Southampton midfielder Oriol Romeu has been speaking ahead of his side’s game against Liverpool at Anfield this weekend, as reported by the Daily Echo.
The Saints currently sit in 13th place in the table after a disappointing start to the season, which has seen them pick up just three wins in 13 matches in all competitions. This is something the Spaniard wants to put right.
However, on the road Saints have been competitive, losing just one of their four matches away from home, beating Crystal Palace and claiming draws with newly promoted sides Huddersfield Town and Brighton and Hove Albion.
Romeu is fully aware that there are more difficult games on the horizon for him and his teammates.
We’ve got harder games coming up and it will be difficult to get points from that, but we don’t want to say that’s impossible.
He went on to add:
If you ask me one week I can tell you we are very close and the next week we are too far away.
This will be a much tougher test than Saints have had on their travels this season, as they look to claim only their second Premier League victory at Anfield since their return to the Premier League.
Romeu wants the team to put in a complete performance for the whole 90 minutes.
We’re not feeling we are doing bad performances but we would like to get more consistency in our games and in our style of play.
We don’t want to just have 20 or 30 good minutes when we are feeling good. We wish we could score two or three goals every game and be offensive.
Saints have been lacking a real cutting edge up front and this is something which will need to improve if they are to pick up a positive result this weekend.
