Angus Gunn was in action for Southampton against Chelsea in the Premier League on Sunday.
Southampton fans have taken to Twitter to give their reaction to the performance of Angus Gunn against Chelsea.
Gunn was in action for Southampton in their Premier League game against Chelsea at St. Mary’s Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
The 23-year-old goalkeeper started the match and played for the entire 90 minutes, as the Saints lost 4-1.
Although the 23-year-old former Manchester City prospect made one or two good saves, he could have done better on two of the four goals that he conceded.
The Englishman had a disappointing game and made some bad judgements and errors, and Southampton fans were not impressed, as shown in the following posts on Twitter.
On a real wtf is Gunn actually thinking?— Jack (@SaintJack98) October 6, 2019
Gunn has given away far too many goals … needs to have some time on the bench— NorwegianSaint (@NorwegianSaint1) October 6, 2019
Gunn , Ward-Prowse need to be dropped #SaintsFC— Gary Wyatt (@SaintGaz76) October 6, 2019
Gunn has to be dropped after today. Inspires no confidence whatsoever, I didn’t even think he should be starting today. I actually thought we might get something today, no idea why. #saintsfc— Bjergy (@NI_Saints) October 6, 2019
Ings has been excellent and Romeu likewise. Long created a nuisance. Not many other things to write home about. Gunn poor. Valery abject defensively. Redmond been unusually selfish so far. I’d be tempted to get Boufal on to have a run at an uncertain Chelsea defence #saintsfc— Saint Alastair (@Saint_Alastair) October 6, 2019
Can’t defend the defence for the third goal. Backing off. Still think I would stick with Bednarek, Yoshida and Bertrand but with Cedric and McCarthy. Need a settled run I’d say. Gunn has to be dropped surely— Saint Alastair (@Saint_Alastair) October 6, 2019
Saints supporters, long suffering, are prepared to forgive the odd individual mistake (Gunn, Valery and Bednarek for the 3 goals) as long as we see our team play with honest effort and intensity. Again we are asked for forgiveness without giving effort and intensity— Charles Miller (@vanislesaint) October 6, 2019
Chelsea are a much better team than Southampton, and the win for Frank Lampard’s side does not come as a surprise at all.
However, given that the match was at St. Mary’s Stadium and Southampton had home advantage, they should have done better.
The result means that the Saints remain dangerously close to the Premier League bottom three, and it is imperative that they put together a run of positive results after the two-week international break.
