Southampton fans called for Shane Long to be dropped after Saturday’s win

Southampton left it late against West Bromwich Albion on Saturday, scoring just five minutes from time to pick up all three important points in the English Premier League.

The hero of the day was Sofiane Boufal, who scored a magical solo goal just minutes after coming on as a substitute. It was the highlight of an otherwise drab game, although Southampton showed enough across the 90 minutes to deserve the victory.

Breaking down Tony Pulis sides is always difficult but fans were left disappointed with the attacking performance from their side, with many particularly confused with Mauricio Pellegrino’s insistence to continue playing Shane Long.

The Irish forward has started their last five matches in the league but has yet to find the net and, having missed a good chance against the Baggies, supporters are losing patience.

With an important game against Brighton & Hove Albion next week, is it time to give the likes of Charlie Austin a chance ahead of him?
