Southampton host reigning champions Chelsea in a dress rehearsal for next Sunday’s FA Cup semi final at Wembley knowing that they have to start winning sooner rather than later if they are to escape relegation.
That match at Wembley is now Chelsea’s biggest game of the season, but the Saints are on the hunt for every point they can muster in order to get out of the very real relegation trouble they are in.
That means that Mark Hughes, who used to play for the Blues, has to get his tactics spot on between now and the end of the current season.
It doesn’t seem as if Southampton fans believe he is at present. The 5-4-1 formation the Welshman plumped for did not go down well and neither did the personnel included.
Saints fans want to see Charlie Austin from the start and do not want Dusan Tadic in the side, citing his lack of commitment among the reasons.
We’ve taken a closer look at the best of the angry responses from the St Mary’s fanbase who are beginning to panic…
That is shocking
