Southampton fans were livid with the performance of Mohamed Elyounoussi during the Saints’ 1-0 defeat to Wolves on Sunday.
Saints have not had the best start to the 2021/22 campaign at all. So far, they have won just one match during the 90 minutes in all competitions, an 8-0 victory over Newport County in the League Cup, and have drawn four and lost two of their six Premier League games to date (Sky Sports).
The latest match was a 1-0 loss to Wolves, who won the match thanks to a Raul Jimenez goal.
On the day, £10.8m-valued Elyounossi (Transfermarkt) did not put in a great display at all, losing possession a huge 23 times against the Old Gold (SofaScore), so it’s no surprise the supporters were not happy with what they saw from the Norway international.
He did bag a hat-trick against Newport, but he needs to do it regularly in the league, it seems, to win over the fans after a loan spell away.
Is Elyounoussi good enough for Southampton?
Supporters took to social media platform in their droves to share their thoughts on the former Celtic loanee.
Let’s see what the fans had to say about Elyounoussi below
“Elyounoussi has been absolutely terrible. How is he still on?”
“Elyounoussi has been absolutely horrendous today”
“Elyounoussi is disappointing in the midfield, He just passes the ball without seeing around and runs forward ,No Accuracy …He should have been taken off in place of Redmond”
“Facts. Djenepo, Redmond, Elyounoussi so wasteful.”
“Well maybe he should try playing more than 1 up front and we may score a goal. Also constantly picking Redmond and Elyounoussi is just gifting the opposition a clean sheet. Both very very poor players when Tella is on the bench. Also, Long coming on, that’s abysmal!!”
“That was garbage today. Adams and Armstrong get a lot of stick but having a player like Saint Maximan or Sarr, the likes our rivals have would make a huge difference to the amount of chances they get. Redmond and Elyounoussi is just a bag of nothing”
