Friday night in the Premier League…25/10/2019

St Mary’s Stadium hosted the Premier League meeting of Southampton and high flying visitors Leicester City on Friday evening which saw the hosts absolutely humiliated as they were annihilated by nine goals to nil. Both Shane Long and Michael Obafemi had participated in the ‘Saints’ final training session but the youngster did not make the matchday squad while Long was named on the substitute bench and must be delighted that he was not called upon.
In his pre-match press conference, manager Ralph Hasenhuttl had name checked Will Smallbone as one of the players not available because of injury.
