VAR denies Saints a penalty

Another moment where the game could have swung back away from Saints, but another one that saw them continue on their path to victory.

Shane Long was slid through on goal and looked ready to make it 2-1 to Saints before being tripped by a Leicester defender, leaving referee Lee Mason with no choice but to point to the spot.

VAR was soon involved though and showed Long to be just inches offside as he received the ball – frustrating, but it showed that Saints could still grab the three points late on if they pushed.

A carbon copy move then produced their winner, and inevitably it was their main man who found the net.
