Only by standing together – players and supporters alike – can Saints turn around their current situation, according to Oriol Romeu.

Goals from Harry Kane – who hit a hat-trick – Heung-Min Son and Dele Alli condemned Southampton to a 5-2 defeat on Tuesday in front of more than 3,000 travelling supporters at the national stadium.

The fans’ efforts certainly did not go unnoticed by Romeu, who was quick to thank those who made the journey to London on Boxing Day, and he called for more of the same going forwards in a difficult period.

“We understand the frustration of the fans but it happens in football,” he said. “ I have been here in a similar situation before and I know how it feels. We appreciate the support and what the fans keep doing for us and that is exactly what we need. 

“We want to thank them and tell them that together we will be stronger and together we can get back to where we want to be.”
