Transfer Rater: Young to Shandong Luneng

Shane Long can prove barren days are behind him with start against Leicester

Claude Puel should start Shane Long against champions Leicester and give the striker time to return to top form.

This time last year, Shane Long's stock had never been higher.

Long was in the middle of the most prolific goal-scoring season of his Premier League career -- having just demolished title-chasing Arsenal -- and en route to hitting double figures in the top flight for the first time.

With Southampton's No. 1 front man Graziano Pelle suffering from a lack of form prompted by a spate of injuries, Long's goals were the single biggest factor in the club achieving Europa League qualification.

Long's late goal sees stagnant Southampton past Norwich

Southampton were uninspiring and left it late but grabbed a late winner to advance to the FA Cup fourth round.

Shane Long scored a dramatic stoppage time winner to lead Southampton to a 1-0 FA Cup third round replay win at home against Championship side Norwich.

Long's scrappy 92nd minute effort set up a fourth round clash at home to Arsenal -- but the laboured performance did little to restore the fans' faith in under-pressure manager Claude Puel.

Saints' Premier League woes continue, as wasteful attack silenced at Burnley

Joey Barton made an immediate impact on his return to Turf Moor, coming off the bench to down Southampton.
Joey Barton scores on his Burnley return, and explains he's just happy to be back playing football.

Southampton's miserable Premier League form continued, as Claude Puel's side slumped to a narrow 1-0 defeat at Burnley on Saturday, their fourth straight loss.

Saints' lack of firepower once again came back to haunt them, as they failed to make the most of dominating possession in a match in which Burnley's Tom Heaton was by far the busier goalkeeper. Joey Barton's deflected free kick 12 minutes from time to mark his return to Turf Moor was enough to seal the points for Burnley to the frustration...
