Morgan Schneiderlin reacts on Twitter to Southampton's loss at Spurs

The Frenchman took to social media after the 1-0 defeat at White Hart Lane.

Morgan Schneiderlin may have hoped for better as Southampton faced Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday afternoon.

The Frenchman has long been linked with a move to the north London side and a result at White Hart Lane would have worked for him either way - whether he wants to move to the capital or not.

But the Saints couldn't quite keep their recent momentum going, as a first-half winner from Christian Eriksen sealed the three points for Spurs.

Schneiderlin himself produced no disgraceful performance. Southampton overall, though, fell short of leaving Tottenham with a result.

After the match, the 24-year-old was in reflective mood, taking to Twitter to send the following message to Saints fans:

Meanwhile, manager Ronald Koeman also tweeted in a personal capacity after the defeat.

The Dutchman had discussed the game with reporters, criticising those Southampton fans that chose to taunt Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino.

But, on social media, Koeman was more positive, stating that his side were 'unlucky' after a 'difficult game.'

The Premier League will now pause for an international break, after which Southampton will resume their season against Sunderland at St Mary's.

Despite their defeat at Spurs, meanwhile, Koeman's side still sit third in the table. It's been an impressive start indeed from the Saints.
