Southampton kept their place in the bottom three last weekend as they lost 2-1 to Manchester City at The Etihad.

Despite the loss, it was a much-improved display from their 9-0 drubbing at the hands of Leicester a week prior.

After the match, Southampton’s official account Tweeted lauding the commitment level of the players during the defeat.

These Southampton fans reacted to the post… 

Well done…

Pick and choose…

Well…

Minimum…

Never in question…

READ SOUTHAMPTON VERDICT 

These Southampton fans are right. The minimum you should expect of any football team is that the 11 players on the pitch at any given time are giving their all for the cause. You cannot afford for anyone to be half-hearted or not trying their best, as you will be punished in this league – and Southampton are certainly being punished. 

Ralph Hasenhuttl needs to make sure that his players are getting the basics right every game, the quality will come into play after that.

Will Southampton stay up?

Yes

No
