VIDEO: Long dinks home beauty to give Saints lead vs. Chelsea

After falling behind to Southampton in the first half, Chelsea roared back in the closing moments to defeat Southampton 2-1.

Shane Long now has 10 goals this season and his latest gave Southampton the lead against Chelsea at St Mary’s on Saturday.

Long had already gone close early on in an end-to-end encounter on the South Coast and just three minutes before the break he gave put Saints ahead.

A long ball forward saw Baba Rahman make a dreadful mistake as he headed his clearance straight to Long and the Republic or Ireland international raced through on goal and dinked the ball over Thibaut Courtois and into the far corner.

Watch the delightful finish above, as Southampton can move into fifth-place with a win.
