James Beattie reacts on Twitter to Sadio Mane’s heroics for Southampton against Aston Villa

Southampton hammered Aston Villa 6-1 at St. Mary’s Stadium in the Premier League earlier today.

James Beattie has taken to social networking site Twitter to give his reaction to Southampton’s comprehensive victory over Aston Villa at home in the Premier League earlier today.

The Saints hammered Villa 6-1 at St. Mary’s Stadium to maintain their chances of securing a Europa League spot for next season.

Senegal international winger Sadio Mane was the star of the show for the hosts, as he scored a hat-trick in the opening 16 minutes.

As a matter of fact, the 23-year-old netted three goals in two minutes and 56 seconds, which surpassed Robbie Fowler's treble of four minutes and 32 seconds for Liverpool against Arsenal in August 1994.

Former Southampton striker Beattie was delighted to see Ronald Koeman’s side win their final home game of the season in such convincing fashion..

Southampton are seventh in the Premier League table at the moment with 60 points from 37 matches.

The Saints are still in with a chance of securing a Europa League berth for the 2015/16 season.

Koeman’s side will take on last season’s English champions Manchester City away from home at the Etihad Stadium on the final day of the current campaign.
