The rest of the team remained the same. Southampton could have been ahead after 15 seconds through Shane Long after he was set up by Dusan Tadic after a long ball straight from kick-off, but the Irishman fired the ball over the crossbar. After 17 minutes, Southampton were ahead through Shane Long, yes, Shane Long scored his first goal since February. Ryan Bertrand’s initial cross evaded everybody, but found Pied on the opposite flank. Pied’s low cross was met by Long who smashed the ball neatly into the corner to end his goal drought. Crystal Palace had their first sight at goal just past the hour mark as Wilfried Zaha found Christian Benteke in the centre of the penalty area, who swiveled before his low shot was superbly saved by McCarthy.
