Southampton fans in the tavern are quietly over the moon that they were able to come away from last weekend with all three points despite a nervously frantic second-half at home to West Ham United.
Mauricio Pellegrino is satisfyingly meeting the fans’ expectations with two Premier League games under his belt with him yet to be beaten; an opening draw to Swansea City brings their tally up to four points for the campaign so far.
The Transfer Tavern’s landlord is eagerly anticipating for the third round of top-flight fixtures when they travel north to face division new boys Huddersfield, who themselves have enjoyed an encouraging start to the year.
Their two wins will make it extremely difficult for Southampton to come away from Yorkshire on Saturday with all three points, however the boss will know what it takes to get the victory.
If Pellegrino goes 4-2-3-1, this team will absolutely demolish Huddersfield this weekend…..
