James Ward-Prowse's Twitter message to Southampton fans after Burnley loss

Southampton Fans

The Southampton midfielder was delighted to have made his comeback despite his side's 1-0 Premier League defeat to Burnley.

Southampton's fine run of form has now well and truly been haulted.

The Saints' 1-0 loss at Burnley earlier today was their fourth in a row, while they are now without a win in five.

And a frustrated Ronald Koeman told BBC Sport after the game: "Again the same story as last Monday against Manchester United. We had more chances, missed a penalty and one of our mistakes ended in 1-0.

"In my opinion, football is not that difficult but you can make it difficult.

"The difference between when we were winning games and are now losing them is a small detail like not punishing the opponent in a key moment like today. Also, doing more defensive mistakes."

But there was one major positive in the return of previously injured midfielder James Ward-Prowse.

And the Southampton man took to Twitter after the Burnley defeat to thank fans for their support, as well as expressing his delight at being back.
