Southampton: Saints fans laud Theo Walcott’s second debut performance

Southampton: Saints fans laud Theo Walcott’s second debut performance - Southampton News

A number of Southampton fans have been heaping praise on Theo Walcott following his second half performance in their 3-3 draw at Stamford Bridge against Chelsea.

Walcott was making his second debut for the Saints after re-joining the club on loan from Everton, and the winger had to endure a tough baptism of fire in the first half. The one time England regular was at times caught out of position down their right-hand side defensively, as Chelsea caused problems for Ralph Hasenhuttl’s team.

However, the 31-year-old did manage to win four of his eight ground duels and make one tackle and one interception, as per Sofascore. That, though, was not enough to prevent Chelsea from taking the lead on multiple occasions and racing out to a two-goal lead inside 28 minutes through Timo Werner.

The winger helped Southampton get themselves back into the contest though, completing two out of his three dribbles and eventually proving heavily instrumental in the late equaliser.

Walcott fired in an effort towards goal in the 91st minute after Kurt Zouma headed away a free kick, with the ball eventually being turned in by Jannik Vestergaard to earn the Saints a deserved point for the effort and quality they produced.
