Southampton can’t resist two cheeky digs at Bournemouth after 9-0 defeat

Southampton wasted no time in poking fun at south-coast rivals Bournemouth following their 9-0 defeat against Liverpool – having found out exactly how that feels twice over the past three years.

Ralph Hasenhuttl's men, who lost 1-0 at home to Manchester United on Saturday afternoon, lost by the same 9-0 scoreline against Leicester in 2019 and the Red Devils just last year.

Now seemingly very grateful to not be on the wrong side of that record losing margin in the Premier League – Southampton took aim at the Cherries with a series of social media jibes.

The first dig from Southampton included the famous Spider-Man 'double identity meme' with both club badges pasted over the heads of the identical Peter Parkers.

Later, in reply to Bournemouth's full-time tweet, Southampton's official account wrote alongside a handshake emoji: "DM us if you need to talk, @afcbournemouth."

Scott Parker was understandably downbeat after his strugglers took a beating at Anfield, with Roberto Firmino stealing the show and scoring twice, Luis Diaz also got two with Harvey Elliott, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Virgil van Dijk and Fabio Carvalho scoring alongside a Chris Mepham own goal.

Parker told Sky Sports: "I think the bottom line is… we were in the arena with massive quality and at this present moment in time we are probably not equipped to handle where it currently is.

"I'm disappointed, one because of the result of course, for the travelling fans and also bitterly disappointed for the players as well.

"It doesnt surprise me and I think I've probably sensed this… but yeah I think this is currently where it is at this moment in time in terms of the players and probably everyone needs a bit of help.

"Today proved too big a challenge, the levels were far too big and the quality was there for everyone to see really.

"They are a clinical team and at times we just couldn't bare that really, the intensity at the stadium as well so we've got a decision to make really I think that is probably where it is as a football club.

"We have got a decision to make, we need to get competitive in this division really because there will be days like this to be fair."
