Southampton fans praise Nathan Tella despite 3-0 Leeds defeat

Southampton suffered another defeat in the Premier League on Tuesday – but some of the club’s fans on Twitter did at least find one positive in the display from exciting youngster Nathan Tella.

The Saints were comprehensively beaten 3-0 at Elland Road as they travelled to Leeds United for a league fixture.

Patrick Bamford opened the scoring shortly after half time, while Stuart Dallas and Raphinha both scored later in the second half to wrap up three points for the Yorkshire club.

Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side haven’t won in the top flight since they beat Liverpool back on 4 January and have just one point in eight league matches.

Southampton travel to Goodison Park to face Everton next Monday, which looks a desperately difficult tie given the way they’ve been performing of late.

It was an even first half where they impressed for large parts, but they fell away in the second period.

A selection of Southampton fans on social media were impressed by their youngster’s contribution in a defeat.

Tella, 21, started during the Leeds match before being taken off after an hour.

The winger was extremely positive during his time on the pitch and caused some problems for the opposition’s backline with his pace, as well as his direct running.

Here are some Saints fans praising Tella:
