Southampton beginning to adapt to Premier League, says Steven Davis

After a tricky start to life in the top flight, which saw fixtures against Manchester City and Manchester United, the Saints man believes his team are starting to find their feet

Southampton midfielder Steven Davis believes his team are starting to find their feet in the Premier League, after a difficult start in which they've taken just three points from six games.

After having to travel to Manchester City, Arsenal and Everton, as well as host Manchester United, Davis is sure there are a number of positives to take from their opening games despite their lack of points so far.

"I think there’s a lots to take from the games that we’ve had so far, especially from the fixtures that were dished out to us at the start of the season," Davis told Saints Player.

"We know we’re capable of playing at this level and it’s just about erasing those little mistakes and get that consistency over the course of ninety minutes to get a result.

"Hopefully we can start picking up a few points and start climbing the table, but at the same time we’re in an unforgiving league and there are no easy games."

The summer signing from Rangers was one of seven arrivals at St Mary's before the campaign, and believes quality such as fellow new-boy Gaston Ramirez show how ambitious the club are to survive in the top tier.

"I think it’s great that the club are showing the ambition by spending money on a young player like Gaston," Davis continued. "He has quality and a bright future in the game. He’s shown in glimpses what he’s capable of and hopefully he can be a big player for us.

"We’ve made a few good additions during the summer and hopefully we’ll see the effects of us starting to gel together soon."
