Shane Long Insists Southampton Simply Cut Through Arsenal
It has been revealed that Southampton striker Shane Long admits he ran himself into the ground for victory over Arsenal.
Long scored twice in the 4-0 rout.
“I don’t think anybody expected us to win especially after our recent performances and with Arsenal were on a bit of a high pushing for the league.
“When we got the first goal we pushed forward up a bit more and everyone worked hard and put in a great shift.
“I’m looking forward to seeing the stats but I’ve never been so tired in my life.”
Long added: “I was surprised how we cut through them but it came from midfield and the backs really pushing on.
“After we got the first goal I think the crowd recognised how hard we were working for each other and got behind us as well.”
