Saints captain Ryan Bertrand says there’s a feel-good factor among fans and his teammates despite the recent Liverpool and Brighton games.

Southampton skipper Ryan Bertrand believes the unity among his Saints teammates and fans will be key as they look to improve on last season’s Premier League campaign.

Bertrand was disappointed in the results seen against Brighton & Hove Albion last Monday, as well as the Liverpool defeat Saturday, but believes Southampton will emphatically bounce back.

“I think overall, bar the late goal we conceded in the last game (against Brighton), it’s been a positive start,” he said per the OS.

“We’ve got the feel-good factor, everyone is together and we’re looking forward to the games.

“One thing we can feel this year is that unity. You see those fans who have traveled up, and there was one point in the second half where they (Liverpool) had a spell of possession, but all you could hear was the Southampton fans roaring and singing.

“That gives us that feeling, and it’s something we know the club has got. That was great, but unfortunately we couldn’t get the result for them today. We’ll put that right next week.

“We’re here to play games, we want them to come thick and fast, and hopefully we can go on a good run.”
