Southampton fans react on Twitter to Pelle's performance against Burnley

Southampton defeated Burnley 2-0 on Saturday but what did fans think of Graziano Pelle's contribution?

Southampton earned an important win against Burnley this weekend, with Shane Long and an own-goal from Jason Shackell sealing the hosts’ victory.

It was a win that saw the Saints keep in touch with the other sides competing for a top-four finish and could yet prove vital depending on how things go elsewhere between now and the end of the campaign.

But while Southampton did what they had to do, one of their players continued his own miserable run of form.

Graziano Pelle started the season on fire and looked like ending it as one of the league’s top scorers. But unfortunately for the 29-year-old, things have not gone well in recent months and he has now gone 13 consecutive league matches without finding the net.

Against Burnley he did his best, having six goal attempts in total, although only one of those found the target. He also managed to find a teammate with just 59 per cent of his passes.
