Southampton defensive midfielder Oriol Romeu has praised manager Claude Puel's management of the team. He claims his management is key to their success.
Puel made seven changes to the Saints side which had featured in the Europa league for last weekend's Leicester match. The game, which ended scoreless, was Southampton's sixth clean sheet on the trot. However, the manager rarely changes the style with which the team plays - this has suited the Spaniard. GW7's tie highlighted this. He made the most tackles and gained possession the most of everyone on the pitch. He also had the highest success rate of all in his duels on the pitch. The video which went around showing him blocking from Vardy, Slimani and Vardy again in quick succession did not exaggerate his importance to the side. Oct 8 - 10:14 AM

Oriol Romeu went off injured early and his absence worsened Southampton's issue at the base of midfield as they capitulated 2-0 at Old Trafford.

The Saints had to be looking longingly across the pitch where their former midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin sat as an unused substitute for Manchester United. The Saints have lost key player after key player over the past few summers and it looks like it might be catching up to them as Jordy Classie struggled to deputize for the injured Romeu. Classie was culpable in United's second goal conceding a needless penalty to Luke Shaw at the edge of the box. Losing Schneiderlin, Wanyama, Mane, Lallana, Lovern, Clyne, and Pelle over the past two summers looks like it might just be too much.

Oriol Romeu scored a late equalizer for Southampton to give them a 1-1 draw against Aston Villa.

The midfielder has been playing better for the Saints but doesn't usually do enough in attack to warrant fantasy consideration. He strengthens Southampton's defensive play and that showed in a decent performance against Aston Villa today, but Morgan Schneiderlin's presence is certainly missed this season. The Saints need to find a way to improve in attack, where they've struggled in the past couple of weeks, and Dusan Tadic's returning to form could give them the boost they need.

Southampton have moved to further sure up their holding midfield with a move for Chelsea's frequently loaned-out midfielder Oriol Romeu for £5million.

There was a time when Oriol Romeu looked like he was going to be the answer in holding midfield for Chelsea for a number of years. Nemanja Matic hadn't panned out and the Barcelona-trained player arrived. After a solid first season, a serious knee injury derailed Romeu's second season at Stamford Bridge and he never really rebounded. He was loaned out to Valencia and Stuttgart over the past two seasons with modest success. With his move to Southampton he will likely be in the mix with Harrison Reed as a reserve in holding midfield behind Jordy Clasie and Victor Wanyama. His Barcelona training may make him a solid fit for Southampton's style of play and maximize his potential if he gets a solid run of matches.

Chelsea midfielder Oriol Romeu has joined Stuttgart on a season-long loan.

The midfielder is an exciting prospect who is only 22 years old. He will be able to face good competition in the Bundesliga and earn important playing time before making a run at a Chelsea job. Chelsea's midfield is crowded at the moment and the acquisition of Cesc Fabregas really hurt Romeu's chances of staying at the club this season. He will be a big part of Stuttgart's team as they try to improve from a bad season last year.

Chelsea midfielder Oriol Romeu has been loaned to Valencia on a season long loan.

Romeu had a tough time finding a spot in the Chelsea lineup and the 21 year old can likely benefit from extra playing time at Valencia. The Chelsea midfield is crowded and this will likely benefit both sides. Valencia can provide him with plenty of playing time and he will have fairly good competition in La Liga.
