Southampton fans delighted on Twitter with Victor Wanyama's performance v Liverpool

The Saints faithful were over the moon with the 24-year-old's performance against the Reds.

Southampton supporters were on cloud nine after a 3-2 win over Liverpool on Sunday afternoon.

Indeed, the Reds were 2-0 up at half-time at St Mary's but a couple of game-changers swung momentum in Southampton's favour.

One of them was Martin Skrtel... The Liverpool centre-back was just awful after coming on, contributing mistakes during all three goals and even giving away a penalty on top of that.

But Sadio Mane, James Ward-Prowse and Victor Wanyama were also lauded for their definitive impact on the South Coast on Sunday.

Indeed, Wanyama in particular was praised by Southampton fans on Twitter, with the midfielder showing just what he can do in a Saints shirt. Those pardoning him for all his mistakes this season are perhaps going overboard - the 24-year-old has been criticised for good reason at times this term.

Against Liverpool, however, Wanyama was brilliant, with supporters giving him due credit on social media...
