Southampton fans discuss Jan Bednarek’s form after concerning stat emerges

Lots of Southampton fans have taken to Twitter to discuss Jan Bednarek’s form, after WhoScored highlighted a particularly concerning statistic.

The 23-year-old has committed more errors leading to goals that any other outfield player in Europe’s top five leagues this season, with the Poland international making three costly mistakes.

While that stat sounds like a worrying one, it hasn’t stopped Ralph Hasenhuttl starting the 6 foot 2 centre-back in all eight of the Saints’ Premier League games this term.

It also hasn’t led to Southampton fans below jumping on his back, quite the contrary in fact.

One supporter said that Bednarek’s style is a “joy to watch”, while another called him the best defender at the club.

However, another said that he gets away with it as he is the “best of a bad bunch”, whereas another feels confused as to why the youngster is exempt from criticism at times.

Let’s take a look at some more of the Twitter reaction…
