Shane Long made the most of his second half substitute appearance, scoring twice to break a goalless stalemate, and Southampton continue to fly high in the table with a 2-0 win over Leicester City.
Ronald Koeman seems to be doing everything right as the Saints look to be more deserving of a top four spot with each passing week. Today, he was given his usual attacking contributions from the likes of Dusan Tadic, Sadio Mane and Graziano Pelle, but after 65 minutes, there still was no finishing product to be had. Enter Long. In the span of five minutes, he scored twice, first being teed up by Pelle then Victor Wanyama, giving Long his first two goals as a Saint in dramatic fashion. As if enough weren't already going their way, the Saints get to face an Aston Villa side next who will be without their top weapon Christian Benteke due to suspension. Nov 8 - 12:04 PM
