Southampton fans react to Oriel Romeu’s monster display in midfield

Premiership Picks

After a hard-fought contest in which Southampton went down to ten men against Manchester United, a draw certainly feels like a huge result for Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side.

The Saints fought back to equalise in the second-half, and but for Kevin Danso’s sending off turning the game on its head, may have fancied themselves to go on and win it.

But whilst the home side couldn’t quite manage all three points, one man who caught the eye in the middle of the park was Oriol Romeu.

The Spaniard was a powerhouse in central midfield, making a team-high six tackles and registering two interceptions and one clearance.

After seeing the 27-year-old stand up to the physical contest against United, Southampton fans took to Twitter to marvel at their midfield machine.

Many supporters of the south coast side hailed the former Chelsea ace as a “beast” and thought he produced a performance that would have silenced any doubters.

Some fans even disagreed with Jannik Vestergaard being named man of the match for the game, and felt the more worthy recipient was Romeu.
