Southampton will look to bounce back from last weekend’s disappointing 1-0 defeat to Manchester United at St Mary’s when they face Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium on Saturday, and Saints fans are divided ahead of the game.
Mauricio Pellegrino’s men would have counted themselves unfortunate to come away with nothing against the Red Devils considering they dominated large periods of the match, but it was once again their struggles in front of goal that cost them.
The south coast outfit have now failed to score in 10 of their last 14 Premier League games, and they will be hoping that they can find the net against the Potters, who come into the fixture having been beaten 4-0 by Chelsea at home last time out.
Southampton supporters have been having their say on the clash via social media, and they are divided.
While some are feeling “strangely confident”, others are “really nervous” going to a ground which is notoriously difficult to get a result at.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
Be a good one to win today….repeat of second half showing of last week with end product should do it! #saintsfc

We are so overdue a few goals. Nice to get two or three today and keep a clean sheet. Probably an obvious tweet haha #saintsfc

Last 2 games we have played very well and unlucky against arguably best team in the league last week. Must win today!#saintsfc

Tricky game today, one where anything could happen. Neither can score so 0.0 is my guess! #saintsfc

I’m actually really nervous for Stoke(a). It’s always a tough place to go but their defensive injuries could be a massive bonus for us #SaintsFC

Could be another tight game today. Love to say we will win but sadly predicting 1 nil stoke. #saintsfc
