Yan Valery is going to treasure his first Premier League goal for the rest of his life, and perhaps it will stand as a momentous one for Southampton, but rest assured many neutrals won’t be forgetting it either.

[ STREAM: Man Utd - Southampton ]

Southampton’s 20-year-old fullback attacked with vigor when he had a chance from distance, beating David De Gea with a goal sure to meet contention for Goal of the Month.

The ball is worked from left to right and Valery is well-position to have a touch and a look at the goal guarded by one of the world’s best goalkeepers.

De Gea wasn’t at his finest, and he would’ve needed to be as Valery drills the ball with the fierce intent to give Ralph Hasenhuttl and Saints a 1-0 edge in their fight to further this Premier League safety campaign.
