Jay Rodriguez put in a full shift and got on the score sheet late with a long-range strike to help Southampton earn a 1-1 draw with Espanyol.
With a couple of exceptions, Ronanld Koeman unsurprisingly named a much different XI than the one that took on Vitesse in Europa action on Thursday, and it was another chance for Rodriguez to show the ACL injury is completely behind him. The Saints conceded a goal in the first half but the defense were mistake free from then on. In the 85th minute, Espanyol were dispossessed in midfield and Rodriguez casually strolled toward the box before unleashing a well-struck blast from 25 yards out. It remains to be seen how soon Rodriguez can challenge for pitch time and with European competition, there is risk of rotation throughout the Southampton attack. He is certainly worth monitoring though. Cuco Martina and Steven Caulker were handed debuts today. Maya Yoshida is looking the favorite to partner Jose Fonte in Week 1, but be wary of Caulker. He will likely get a crack at some point. Aug 2 - 12:34 PM
