Southampton narrowly lost to Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday afternoon.
Southampton lost 2-1 to Tottenham Hotspur this weekend with goals from Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli enough to seal all three points for the hosts.
James Ward-Prowse found the net for the visitors but it proved to be a mere consolation, even though the Saints pushed hard for an equaliser in the last 30 minutes.
In a bid to score a second goal, Southampton manager Claude Puel sent on Sofiane Boufal in the second half but the Morocco international could not add to his two strikes in English football to date.
Boufal has featured 21 times for Southampton this season. However if he wants to be any more than a bit-part player at St. Mary’s he will need to start replicating the form that earned him his move in the first place.
After the match we took to Twitter to see what Southampton fans thought of Boufal’s latest performance and you can read a selection of what we found below:
@EthanEvansDDT I think we need to be patient with Boufal. Given a full pre season I think he'll be much better in the next campaign.— Steve Aubin (@steveaubin2) March 19, 2017
Players have bad games. Boufal had a bad game - it happens. Back the team and one of our most creative, innovative players ffs. #saintsfc— Luke Osman (@LukeOsmanRS) March 19, 2017
I'm assuming #saintsfc fans slagging off Boufal are the same ones that wanted rid of Mane after his first season then cried when we sold him— Matt Hookway (@MattHookway) March 19, 2017
@LukeOsmanRS Boufal doesn't need detractors, he needs match time in PL games.— Mike (@Notablogger16) March 19, 2017
@BenStanners love it when Boufal's on - feels likethe unexpected can happen at any moment— Rational Rich (@Rational_Rich) March 19, 2017
