Southampton legend Matt Le Tissier insists all is not lost this season.

Le Tissier won a string of ­relegation battles during his 16-year Saints career.

He told the Daily Star: “In 1998-99 we had a horrendous start ­under Dave Jones. We didn’t win until our 10th game and had a similar amount of points to what they have now.

“You might look at the table now and say there is no chance, but it has been done.

“As a fan the situation ­worries me but that doesn’t mean I don’t think we can turn it around and give ourselves a chance of staying up.”
