Twitter reacts to an exciting first half between Southampton and Bournemouth

What a half we’ve had between Bournemouth and Southampton to kick-off Sunday’s Premier League action. Not a traditional derby by any means, these two south-coast sides are fast establishing an entertaining rivalry in the nation’s top flight.

It has been two names familiar to Chelsea fans that have stolen the show so far; Nathan Ake and Ryan Bertrand.

Ake is on loan from the Stamford Bridge side and it was his excellent diving header that gave the Cherries a 1-0 lead within five minutes. That will have done little to ease Southampton fans’ fear prior to kick-off about Puel’s team selection.

Bertrand, who left Chelsea in 2015 after a long spell at the club, replied with a stunning drive past Artur Boruc to make it 1-1. That’s where things stand at the break.

We’re expecting more goals in the second half with both sides looking likely to add to their tally in a toe-to-toe battle.

Fans, neutral or otherwise, have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts on today’s cracker. Can one of these sides get ahead and claim a big victory?
