    Obafemi didn’t see much of the ball, but was industrious when he saw it. Long did reasonable when introduced. Important 2-1 win for Southampton with the 2 goals scored after Obafemi was subbed. So chances are he won’t start the next game. Hopefully he will though and get the run of games he so badly needs.

    Such a pity Mick won't give Long his due shot.

    I like Long and believe he should be in the squad. But he isn’t doing anything exceptional and this match was a perfect demonstration of his lack of killer instinct in front of goal. He was heavily involved while scuffing at least two half chances.

    I don’t criticize Mick for examining alternatives even if it hasn’t worked out.

    Not saying he should be always there and starting but when Scott Hogan is getting more chance, well...

    Two Irish teenagers last started on Saturday, 21 January 2006, when Joey O'Brien and Stephen Ireland and were both 19 when they lined out against each other for Bolton and Manchester City, respectively.

    Yeah, it was frustrating to watch - Southampton were rubbish when he was on and collectively woke up after he went off and suddenly started creating chances (although Boufal's arrival helped with that)
