My word, Romeo Lavia is having some debut. Diagonal passes to start counter-attacks, receiving under pressure and defensive positioning has been largely faultless. 18-years-old. Premier League debut.
This Lavia for Southampton is a serious baller. How do City just spawn these youngsters every year?
Romeo Lavia has so much composure and discipline. Not afraid to take touches in his own box with Harry Kane and Dejan Kulusevski circling.
Also always found just at the base of that midfield, giving JWP and Oriol Romeu license to roam. Hard to believe he's 18. #SaintsFC
Lavia, aged 18, didn’t break a sweat in midfield against an elite side. Massive prospect.
🇧🇪 Roméo Lavia .vs. Spurs:
- 90' min
- 49/51 accurate passes (96%)
- 13 ball recoveries
- 11 passes to the final third
- 7/8 ground duels won (88%)
- 4 fouls won
- 3/3 accurate long balls (100%)
What a performance, can't believe he's an 18-year-old in his debut. #SaintsFC https://t.co/PpalCcleql
🏴| Roméo Lavia est TITULAIRE pour le premier match de Southampton !
Dendoncker titulaire également pour les Wolves.
Orel Mangala commence sur le banc pour Nottingham Forrest. https://t.co/7j1XRJNYnt
✨ Première titularisation réussie pour Roméo Lavia en Premier League
De la maturité, du calme, un gros QI foot, de la justesse, tient complètement la route physiquement, de l'audace,...
Tottenham était trop fort pour Southampton, mais pas forcément pour lui. https://t.co/ROaOj0oipl
found another azzurri vid in my camera roll haha did daniele lavia just say “go pilipino”???? https://t.co/1SP0geb8pQ
🚨#SaintsFC starting XI:
Bazunu: KWP, Valery, Bednarek, Salisu, Djenepo; Lavia, Romeu, JWP; Aribo, A.Armstrong
Hasenhuttl sticks with his 3-5-2, with Joe Aribo and Armstrong up front. So critical Southampton pose a threat on the break.
Tottenham XI: Lloris, Romero, Dier, Davies; Emerson, Hojbjerg, Bentancur, Sessegnon; Kulusevski, Son; Kane.
Southampton XI: Bazunu; Valery, Salisu, Bednarek; Walker-Peters, Ward-Prowse, Romeu, Lavia, Djenepo; Aribo, A. Armstrong.
Not as bad as everyone’s making it out to be. Lavia is a serious player. Romeu for Armstrong would make a whole lot of sense. #saintsfc

Impressive debut by 18-year-old Romeo Lavia 🤝
Today's game not enough to leap to conclusions, other than the facts that we need a better CB and a goalscorer. Lavia was a standout.
Didn't expect anything from an opening game, especially away at one of the best sides we'll face this season. #SaintsFC
Ralph Hasenhuttl asked about Romeo Lavia and says there is a reason he started this game. Impressed. #SaintsFC
Btw Lavia impressed today. Will be playing for a CL team in a few years. Potentially even returning to City
barely seen anything praising romeo lavia today, guy was top notch. looked so so mature and a great player. hope city regret losing him
RH: "There was a reason he (Romeo Lavia) started this game." #SaintsFC
XI TOTTENHAM: Lloris; Romero, Dier, Davies; Emerson, Hojbjerg, Bentancur, Sessegnon; Kulusevski, Kane, Son

Il tweet di Lavia che parla della bava altrui viene subito dopo quello di #Filippo

People need to calm down. Spurs are favoured by many to challenge City and Liverpool this year & we are favourites 4 relegation.
Silly individual mistakes cost us but there are also solid individual performances to note: Lavia, Aribo, JWP.
Romeo Lavia will get a lot of minutes for a 4.5 mid.
Ralph will be gone by end of November. 3 at the back doesn’t work and playing no strikers is appalling. All you djenepo and Valery lovers can pipe down too. Both are shit. Lavia only plus from that game and also keeping at 4 #SaintsFC
One positive from today was the performance of Romeo Lavia. He is going to be some player #SaintsFC
Lavia excellent. Armstrong (A) appalling. Defensively a bit of a liability. Zero attacking threat unfortunately. System won’t work, need to go back to a 4222
Thought the lad Lavia was decent, given his age he didn't look out of place. Joe needs to adjust, the SPL ain't nowhere as fast as the EPL. Keeper did nowt wrong despite conceding 4. Djenepo ain't a wing back by any stretch of the imagination. We'll get there.
