Comments:

League position: 13th After a run of six unbeaten away league games, Southampton had now lost their last four Premier League away games. Victor Wanyama received his second red card of this season. Sadio Mane was originally selected in the starting line-up. The club's official Twitter account quoted manager Ronald Koeman's reasons for dropping him to the bench immediately after the teams were announced an hour before kick-off. "It's a disciplinary reason. He was in the team, but he was too late in the meeting. We have rules in the team".
