Some Southampton fans have been left blasting the performance of Oriol Romeu in their 4-0 loss at Liverpool on Saturday afternoon in the Premier League.
Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men got a real battering at Anfield, with two goals from Diogo Jota and one each from Thiago and Virgil van Dijk more than enough to give the home side all three points.
Should Southampton start Romeu?
Romeu was simply run ragged in the centre of midfield at times, as he lost out on four of his duels, while he also failed to block any shots on his goal and made no key passes, losing possession of the ball 12 times, the seventh-most out of any of his teammates to have set foot on the pitch (SofaScore).
Nonetheless, he will now be hoping to make amends when his team host Leicester City in midweek.
Southampton fans on Romeu performance
These members of the St. Mary’s faithful blasted his display on Twitter, with one Saints supporter even going as far as to claim that he was a ‘disgrace’:
“Romeu and JWP are too slow to play PL football together in a two”
“Bednarek, Livramento and Romeu have been awful. Should be subbed at half time and dropped until they earn there place back”
“Romeu laughing and smiling with Thiago at the end of that shocking half. Absolute disgrace, how can you be doing that after being hammered for 45 minutes and not having a care in the world?”
“Romeu leave out of respect thanks”
“Romeu has been way off it today, don’t know what’s wrong with him today, but he could have done a lot better on 3 of the goals”
“Jesus, Romeu is having an absolute shocker today”
