Southampton had won just two games before beating Watford at the end of November. Their previous two wins had come against Sheffield United and Brighton, but they had lost to the likes of Bournemouth and Burnley – as well as picking up a 9-0 loss to Leicester City at home.

What do we think?

Considering how the club had won just two of the first 13 games of the season, one can see why Saints fans were worried.

But they are currently 14th in the table and are seven points clear of 18th-placed Bournemouth. It shows that the season has progressed better than how it had started. Since the start of December, they have won seven games. Saints fans should laud the team for this improvement.
