Strikers and substitutes

9. Shane Long proved his worth today, as he brings a pace that few defenders in the league can contend with.  He started both attacks that led to the goals.  Held the ball up brilliantly when left all alone.  However, I am sure he won’t forget the goal he missed, alone at the back post.. Striker. Southampton. SHANE LONG

Entered in the 62nd minute with the game 1-2.  Had a real impact driving the ball forward off the dribble, breezing by opponents.  The skill is there, but Southampton’s midfield is very competitive.. Substitution centre-midfielder. Southampton. MARIO MEINA. 6.5

5. Came on in stoppage time following Watford equalizer.  Even in short period of time, you can see the different level of pace/technique he brings.. Attacking-midfielder. Southampton. SOFIANE BOUFAL

5. Came on with 2 minutes in stoppage time, a product of Watford tying the game. At 1-2 it didn’t even look like Pellegrino was going to make a change.. Attacking-midfielder. Southampton. JOSH SIMS
