‘Superb’: Southampton fans praise striker Manolo Gabbiadini after Watford draw

Manolo Gabbiadini completed 90 minutes for Southampton in the draw to Watford on Saturday – and some of the club’s supporters on Twitter hailed him for his performance.

The Saints were held to a 1-1 draw at St Mary’s and it leaves them just outside of the relegation places on goal difference going into the international break.

Mark Hughes’ side were ahead in the 20th minute when attacker Gabbiadini scored a left-footed effort on his return to the starting XI.

But visitors Watford scored a late equaliser in the 82nd minute through Jose Holebas, as he rescued a point for them with his deflected effort.

Gabbiadini has been on the fringes so far this campaign at Southampton, but impressed on his return to the side as he was deployed as a right-winger.

The Italian will be delighted to score his first goal of the season for the Saints and will now hope for an extended run in the side.

He has had a frustrating run this season by starting just two league games, but the Watford clash may be a catalyst and turning point in his time at Southampton.

A selection of supporters on social media praised the 26-year-old for his latest display and feel he played a crucial role.

Here are selection of the fans tweets on Gabbiadini’s performance:
