Southampton fans react to Jordy Clasie's performance against Middlesbrough

Southampton manager Claude Puel

Southampton and Middlesbrough went head-to-head at the weekend.

Southampton defeated Middlesbrough 1-0 in their latest Premier League match, with summer signing Sofiane Boufal scoring the only goal of the game.

Saints manager Claude Puel continued to rotate his squad, making eight changes from the side that slipped out of the Europa League last week, and this result shows the strength in depth at St Mary’s these days.

One player that came in was Dutch midfielder Jordy Clasie and he did not disappoint.

The 25-year-old has been in and out of the side under Puel, featuring nine times in the league and 14 times in all competitions.
