Southampton got back to winning ways in impressive fashion this weekend, defeating Norwich City 3-0 at St Mary’s.
Graziano Pelle opened the scoring on the stroke of half-time and two second-half goals from Dusan Tadic ensured a comfortable victory for Ronald Koeman’s men.
While Southampton’s job was made considerably easier when Norwich had Steven Whittaker sent off for two bookable offences the Saints had plenty of their own players to thank for the three points.
One of those was summer signing Oriol Romeu who is beginning to show on a consistent basis just what a talented midfielder he is.
Romeu is still only 23 and he has already featured five times for Southampton, improving week on week.
While Chelsea fans never got to see the best of the player during his time at Stamford Bridge it seems Southampton have done it again, replacing a departed player with another who can do a great job.
After the match we took to Twitter to see what Southampton fans thought of Romeu’s performance and you can read a selection of what we found below:
Lol if Wanyama thinks he's too good for us. Romeu already looks 100% better in that position. Spurs, please, feel free to take him :)— Lewi§ DWMC (@LewisDWMC) August 30, 2015
