Southampton may be struggling near the foot of the table as things stand, but it hasn’t seemed to have dampened the team’s spirits ahead of this weekend’s trip to Wolves.
The Saints currently find themselves balancing precariously above to the relegation zone in 17th place after eight matches, with a defeat against Nuno Espirito Santo’s men potentially dragging them into the bottom three this weekend, should results elsewhere work against them.
After three straight defeats in the top flight, Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side take little momentum into their clash with Wolves. However, after having an international break to regroup and refresh, there seems to be a feel-good factor pulsating through the team ahead of Saturday’s trip to the West Midlands – judging by this clip below, anyhow.
Sofiane Boufal is renowned for his trickery and ability to beat a man whichever way he sees fit. Unfortunately, the 26-year-old’s latest victim was his own teammate, Stuart Armstrong, as he nutmegged the Scotland international in training. Even more unfortunately for Armstrong, it was caught on camera and uploaded to the club’s official Twitter page.
The clip hasn’t gone down too well with these Saints fans, however, who are understandably frustrated with the club’s lack of performances on the pitch of late…
Seriously?? Can we just man up and try to win an actual game.
