Ronald Koeman sends confident message on Twitter, gets great response from fans

The Southampton boss has been previewing his side's Premier League clash against Liverpool on Sunday afternoon.

Ronald Koeman sent a confident message out on Twitter ahead of Southampton's Premier League clash with Liverpool on Sunday afternoon.

And he got a great response from the Southampton fanbase.

Indeed, there has been plenty of emphasis on the Reds and their late surge this season - with both the Europa League trophy and a top-four place still available to Jurgen Klopp and co.

But Southampton themselves are only seven points off fourth. Granted, Liverpool have two games in hand over the Saints - but a win for Koeman's men at St Mary's on Sunday could move them back up to seventh - sixth if Manchester United lose by enough to fall below them on goal difference.

As such, Koeman's message to the supporters received plenty of positive responses from Southampton fans on Twitter. They fancy their chances against Liverpool and Saints-Reds clashes have always been entertaining contests in recent seasons:
