Fans on Twitter have been getting nostalgic over a starting Xl from on this day in 2016 as Slaven Bilic took his men to face Southampton.

There it is, in all it’s glory, Song, Payet, Collins, the works, it’s a wonder how we managed to lose this game 1-0 against a ten-man Saints.
But the outcome on that Saturday evening hasn’t stopped some supporters from drooling over the Xl from that very special season – just take us back!
One proclaimed that the side alone would get into the Premier League top eight, a second stated how much he misses the good old days of our football club and a third simply called the Xl “sauce.”
Below is a list of the best reactive Tweets to the nostalgic side…
Those were the days
