Takumi Minamino Scored While Southampton Ended Losing Runs
In a well-deserved draw with Chelsea, Southampton’s Takumi Minamino was exceptional
For Southampton, which had been on a downward spiral, the days have changed.
The team collected their first Premier League point since beating Liverpool on 4 January, post a run of six successive losses.
The noise that echoed around St. Mary’s as Anthony Taylor as the final whistle was blown had been a sigh of relief that could be heard far and wide.
The manager Ralph Hasnhuttl said that it’s not easy taking a point against a side as great as that. It gives a mental lift.
He added that they haven’t got what they actually deserve during the past weeks. And it was now time to get some reward for the work that they do.
This result also limited Chelsea’s new manager bounce under Thomas Tuchel. A sequence of five subsequent victories came to a halt.
