Southampton climb into second but the three points at The Liberty came at a cost as James Ward-Prowse and Maya Yoshida are lost to injury.

James Ward-Prowse will be assessed after the Saints midfielder was caught by Swansea debutant Frederico Fernandez midway through the second half resulting in the player leaving the field of play on a stretcher. Although the early signs did not look good post-match Ronald Koeman confirmed that he had spoken with the medical team who advised the problem was "not bad," despite having his ankle fixed in a plastic cast. There was also good news regarding defender Maya Yoshida, his ankle injury only appears to be knock meaning a return next weekend would be realistic with defensive teammate Toby Alderweireld also expected to recover from the minor hamstring injury which sidelined him for the win over Swansea.

Victor Wanyama scored his first goal for Southampton to give the Saints an impressive three points away from home.

The assist came from Graziano Pelle, the striker who has been in hot form for the past few matches. Southampton and Swansea were matched well in the first half but after Wilfried Bony was sent off in the 39th minute, Saints took more and more control of the match and eventually got the winner they were looking for. Some soccer analytics guys now have Southampton at anywhere from 20-40% chance of finishing in the top four and that speaks a lot about the quality this team has brought this season.

Shane Long has recovered from the knock he picked up against Newcastle and has participated in training for the past three days.

Long has played well with Southampton despite not having any goals or assist this year. On top of that, Southampton have played well and have been scoring goals and it's just a matter of time until he gets on the scoresheet. Swansea have been playing well but aren't unbeatable. Long should be considered in fantasy leagues where he costs significantly less than Graziano Pelle.

New Southampton midfielder Sadio Mane could be involved as soon as this coming week when Southampton face Arsenal in the League Cup.

Mane has received his work permit and is expected to arrive at Southampton tomorrow. Ronald Koeman expects him to be involved against Arsenal but he will of course miss the weekend match against Swansea. it's unknown where Mane will play in the Saints' system but he is a quality player that deserves to be kept an eye on as he begins his Premier League career.

Shane Long has earned himself the starting job at Southampton in favor of James Ward-Prowse.

Long plays on the right side of Graziano Pelle and has performed respectably in recent weeks, almost scoring last time out against Newcastle. On the left of Pelle is Dusan Tadic, who has also played well and is unlikely to lose his spot. Long is not the greatest of options against Swansea this week but can certainly be used when Southampton face easier opposition.

Graziano Pelle dominated Newcastle United by scoring two goals and grabbing an assist.

Pelle has been great for fantasy managers in the last two weeks as he has three goals and an assist in that timeframe. The Southampton striker is a great goalscorer who is in the middle of great stretch of match ups. He gets to face Swansea and QPR next and we recommend you add him to your fantasy squad for the upcoming fixtures. Southampton are rolling at the moment and both Pelle and Dusan Tadic are worth owning.

New Southampton midfielder Sadio Mane likely won't be able to earn a start against Newcastle after a long international journey.

Mane featured and scored in Senegal's African Cup of Nations qualifier against Botswana on Tuesday but due to long travel, Sane isn't scheduled to arrive to Southampton until Friday. The midfielder hasn't actually been to Southampton yet as he signed with the club just days before his international travel. He will get to meet his teammates on Friday, just a day before the team's match against Newcastle. He may appear off the bench but if we had to guess we'd say Mane won't play at all this weekend.

Southampton have signed forward Sadio Mane from Red Bull Salzburg.

Saints boss Ronald Koeman has said that Mane can play both centrally or as a wing but it's more likely he lines up out wide. New Saints striker Graziano Pelle has played well centrally and Mane will likely support him from out wide. It's unknown whether Mane will replace Shane Long on the left or James Ward-Prowse on the right, but you can expect some sort of rotation throughout the season. Mane has scored 45 goals in 87 matches throughout the last two seasons and can be a good fantasy value as Southampton seem to have a good attack once again.

Southampton have acquired defender Toby Alderweireld from Atletico Madrid on a season-long loan.

This is a great move the Saints, who have just reinforced their defense with a number of signings. Alderweireld can play both center-back and right-back, and it's unclear where he'll play at the moment. The Saints have Jose Fonte locked in as a starter and recently acquired center-back Florin Gardos to partner him, so there may not be a place for Alderweireld there. At right-back, they have Nathaniel Clyne, who has played well going forward this season, but can be a liability on defense. Regardless of where he plays, we expect Alderweireld to start and be a good fantasy option for managers.

Southampton midfielder Saphir Taider is expected to leave the club after joining just three weeks ago.

Taider joined Southampton on a year-long loan from Inter but has not met Ronald Koeman's expectations and could leave as soon as this week. He hasn't featured in a match yet and won't be a fantasy option even if he finds a way to remain in the Premier League. The midfielder is expected to join Italian club Sassuolo who are playing in Serie A for the first time ever. This situation is not expected to affect Pablo Osvaldo's status at Inter.

Morgan Schneiderlin has appealed to Southampton fans after scoring a brace against West Ham.

Schneiderlin's brace was enough for the Saints to win 3-1 over West Ham. The midfielder has come out to say after the match that he has always respected the Saints' fans even thought he had requested to be sold to a bigger team over the summer. Schneiderlin also added that his future is now at Southampton and he will do his best to continue pleasing the fans. Despite the two goals today, the midfielder is not an usual threat and is not the best of fantasy performers. Avoid him for now.

Grazianno Pelle scored to help Southampton to a 3-1 win over West Ham United.

Pelle has been good in his first three Premier League matches but has been getting extremely unlucky. He had a few shots come close to goals and one ruled out for offside earlier in this match. At the end of the day, he finished with a goal to help Southampton win in inspiring fashion. The first half was a dull but the second was exciting as the Saints found their groove and went out to attack. Dusan Tadic looks like the real deal and James Ward-Prowse has been great as well. The future is bright at St. Mary's.

Dusan Tadic can continue his good fantasy form as Southampton travel to Upton Park to face West Ham in Week 3.

The summer signing from FC Twente is already showing signs of promise with a 12 point haul against West Brom in Week 2, containing a smattering of successful crosses and a couple of shots on target. Tadic is classed as a midfielder but had an excellent goal-scoring record in Holland and is lining up as a left-sided forward in Ronald Koeman's current system, so he's well worth a look for the Saints' trip to West Ham.
Aug 29 - 4:36 AM

Southampton midfielder Lloyd Isgrove will miss this weekend's match against West Ham United.

Isgrove has been moving up the pecking order but remains a bench player as of now and is not fantasy relevant regardless of injury. He is still young and has shown tons of promise, but he is not yet ready to be a Premier League regular and will need to continue improving at this rate to make a run at a rotation spot.
Aug 28 - 10:15 PM

Southampton are reportedly after Belgium international Toby Alderweireld.

Alderweireld is a good defender who would be a likely starter at Southampton. He can play both center-back and right-back, so it's not certain where exactly he'll line up, but he will immediately improve the Saints already solid defense. The Saints are also in pursuit of Tottenham's Andros Townsend, who would add an exciting option to their attack.
