Southampton are now only outside of the Premier League relegation zone on goal difference following their 4-1 home defeat to Chelsea on Sunday afternoon.
The Saints actually started quite well against Frank Lampard’s side but conceded the first goal in the 17th minute courtesy of a finish from Tammy Abraham.
The referee needed goal-line technology to confirm that Abraham’s effort had crossed the line with Maya Yoshida doing his best to clear.
Is Moussa Djenepo the new Sadio Mane?
Angus Gunn hardly covered himself in glory as the goalkeeper came to confront Abraham and ended up getting nowhere near the ball.
To be honest, there might not even have been a chance for the Chelsea forward had the Southampton goalkeeper not decided to leave his goal.
Gunn also dropped a clanger in the defeat to Bournemouth last month, and it seems that the club’s fans are fast losing patience with the 23-year-old.

Indeed, many of the Southampton supporters took to social media during the defeat to Chelsea to criticise the Englishman.
A selection of the Twitter reaction can be seen below:
Gunn has given away far too many goals … needs to have some time on the bench

Gunn , Ward-Prowse need to be dropped #SaintsFC

Stop blaming the defence – Gunn is directly or indirectly responsible for both of those goals. Needs resting, McCarthy back in #saintsfc

Gunn has to be dropped after today. Inspires no confidence whatsoever, I didn’t even think he should be starting today. I actually thought we might get something today, no idea why. #saintsfc

Bring back Forster, Stekelenburg, Chris Woods, literally anybody but Gunn

JWP, Gunn and Hojbjerg have all been terrible this season and should all be dropped. Problem is we have no depth in central midfield what so ever #saintsfc
