Southampton and Republic of Ireland striker Shane Long has certainly had his critics so far this season, few dismiss and overlook his work rate but his goal threat has long been an issue.

It’s been a good week for the 32-year-old though and when he scored against Watford in midweek, not only did he set a new Premier League record for the fastest goal, he also made it three goals in his last four matches, so he’s another player who has seen their form improve following the arrival of Ralph Hasenhuttl.

Despite late disappointment in the match as we were denied the win with a late leveller, there were certainly positives to take given the points gap we now have on Cardiff City, and Southampton fans on social media were more than happy to lavish praise on Long for his own recent improvements.

Hopefully, his improvement continues and along with the rest of the side we take some momentum into next year as we all hope for better.
