A number of Southampton fans have raged over the performance of Nathan Redmond during the Saints’ 1-0 defeat against Everton at Goodison Park on Monday night.
Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side headed into the game aiming to get their form back on track and relieve some of the pressure that has been building on them following an eight-game winless run in the league.
The Saints though could not show enough quality going forwards to take anything from the game as they fell to their eighth defeat in their last nine league matches.
One player who continued his recent struggles was Redmond, with the attacker guilty of losing possession on far too many occasions as failed to make the most of getting into some dangerous positions. The 26-year-old was moved back to his more natural wide role against Everton having been played up front in recent weeks, but he failed to perform well enough once again.
Redmond tried to make things happen when he got on the ball, but he was guilty of giving away the ball on 22 occasions, while he also failed to put in a single cross or make a single key pass (Sofascore). The 26-year-old needs to show more end product if he is going to be able help the Saints out of their dismal run of form.
