Southampton: McCarthy, Livramento and Walker-Peters struggled v Norwich

Southampton: McCarthy, Livramento and Walker-Peters struggled v Norwich -Southampton

Southampton trio Alex McCarthy, Valentino Livramento and Kyle Walker-Peters all experienced poor days at the office in the 2-1 defeat to Norwich City.

Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side suffered a hugely disappointing loss at Carrow Road on Saturday afternoon, as Dean Smith won his first game as Norwich manager.

Che Adams’ early goal got the Saints off to a perfect start but strikes from Teemu Pukki and Grant Hanley turned the game on its head.

As per statistical website Sofascore, these were Southampton’s three worst performers in the defeat to the Canaries, with only those who featured for at least 45 minutes eligible for consideration.

Alex McCarthy – 6.3

McCarthy started between the sticks for Hasenhuttl’s team but his performance left a lot to be desired. Indeed, his was the lowest match rating awarded to a Southampton player.

The 31-year-old was beaten at his near post for both of Norwich’s goals and picked out a team-mate with only 11 of his 17 passes (65%)

McCarthy also played just two accurate long balls out of eight, won zero duels and lost possession six times at Carrow Road on Saturday.

Valentino Livramento – 6.4

Livramento was another man who struggled, with the right-back failing to affect proceedings in a positive manner.

The 19-year-old didn’t play a key pass at Carrow Road, suggesting that a lack of attacking thrust was on show, and he won just six of his 15 duels, along with losing possession 17 times, the joint-second highest figure among Ralph Hasenhuttl’s team.

One accurate cross out of three was also a disappointing return from the youngster, who gave away two fouls.

Kyle Walker-Peters – 6.7

Walker-Peters was another Saints defender who flattered to deceive at Carrow Road, failing to impress at left-back.

Just like Livramento, the 24-year-old ceded possession 17 times in the match and he lost nine of his 18 duels. The former Tottenham full-back also committed four fouls, suggesting that he was an erratic presence against the Canaries on Saturday.

In other news, some Saints fans slammed another player’s performance against Norwich. Find out who it is here.
