Southampton fans react on Twitter to Kelvin Davis's performance v Leicester

Southampton Fans

There was criticism from some and a leaping to the goalkeeper's defence from others.

When Leicester City are involved, it's as though you know exactly what's going to happen when the other side go 2-0 up.

On this occasion, it as Southampton who surged into a two-goal lead against the Foxes, only for Jamie Vardy to claw the visitors back into the game to earn a 2-2 draw.

Substitutions swung the game for both sides. Claudio Ranieri made the right ones, Ronald Koeman faltered.

But there was, naturally, also plenty of focus from Southampton fans on goalkeeper Kelvin Davis, whose kicking performance let his side down on Saturday afternoon.

It's always difficult when a veteran is no longer at his best. The same happened with Frank Lampard, Steven Gerrard and so many quality players over the years. It's very difficult to decide when to hang up those boots.

As far as Davis is concerned, he is a Southampton legend. But many are still calling for the 39-year-old to call it a day. His performance against Leicester showed flaws and he may never get the chance to earn the game time that can help avoid such displays.

At the same time, however, plenty of Southampton fans leaped to the goalkeeper's defence due to his iconic status at St Mary's. Here's a selection of how supporters reacted to Davis's performance v Leicester on Twitter...
