Southampton fans still unconvinced by Pellegrino’s tactics after West Brom win

Southampton advanced to the quarter-finals of the FA Cup as they beat West Bromwich Albion 2-1 at the Hawthorns on Saturday, but Saints fans are still struggling to see much progress being made on the pitch under manager Mauricio Pellegrino.

The south coast outfit picked up their first Premier League win since November when they also beat the Baggies in the west Midlands earlier this month – this time by a 3-2 scoreline – to move themselves out of the relegation zone in the top flight.

However, a 2-0 defeat at home to Liverpool plunged them back into the bottom three and increased the pressure on Pellegrino, who is still struggling to win over the St Mary’s faithful despite goals from Wesley Hoedt and Dusan Tadic giving them a victory on Saturday.

Southampton supporters have been speaking about their team’s situation via social media, and while one said “it’s like watching Burnley without the long ball”, another said “I have no idea what Pellegrino is trying to do”.
