Romeu targets response against Inter

By SFC Media Sun 30 Oct Saints vs Inter

Oriol Romeu says Southampton are focusing on beating FC Internazionale after losing their first home game of the season.

Saints were defeated 2-0 by Chelsea in the Premier League at St Mary’s on Sunday, and Romeu wants the squad to get back to winning ways as quickly as possible.

"We have to come back now,” he said. “We don't want to lose two in a row.

“The season is very long and we need to come back. We have been very good recently, and the feelings are bad today because we have lost. We are being honest with ourselves, but we need to look forward and we need to be proud as well.”

St Mary’s is set to host another sell-out crowd on Thursday, and Romeu says Claude Puel’s men will be looking to reward that support.

"I think the fans will be behind us,” he said. “It will be a nice night and hopefully we can get a good win, and get those wins back again.

"It's the first one we have lost, but we have to stop it as soon as possible and we have to come back stronger and better.”
