ORIOL Romeu has urged his Saints team-mates to use last weekend's defeat to Wolves to make them "angry" as they look to bounce back against Chelsea tomorrow.

Sunday's 2-1 reverse against Nuno Espirito Santo's side was Saints' sixth Premier League defeat in a row - the first time they have endured such a run in the club's history.

Saints looked comfortable against Wolves, leading 1-0 before a controversial penalty swung the contest the way of the visitors.

With no midweek fixture, Saints have plenty of time to prepare for the visit of Thomas Tuchel's Blues to St Mary's on tomorrow lunchtime (12.30pm).

And Romeu is eager to put things right against his former club.

Discussing being part of a team which has set an unwanted club record run of losses, Romeu told the Daily Echo: "It is tough. It is a crucial moment.

"We all said that we wanted to react and do better and we haven’t done it (against Wolves).

"We have to use this defeat to be angry and to bounce back next week."
