Long had one shot off target and sent in one cross in Saturday’s 1-1 draw against Watford.

Long finished last season with three goals in his final six matches but was unable to put any pressure on net to start the season. Long was through on goal but was taken down outside the box by Watford’s Ben Watson, who was sent off for the foul. Long’s next match is Friday against Manchester United.

Shane Long: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

July 5, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Long started all four Republic of Ireland matches during Euro 2016, tallying one shot off target, one cross and two yellow cards on 11 fouls. He extended his international record to 67 caps and 16 goals. Ireland lost 2-1 out to France and were knocked out of the tournament at the round of 16.

Long rediscovered his prolific form last season with Southampton despite struggling to stay healthy in the beginning of the campaign. The 29-year-old forward recorded his most league goals in five years and finished the season with 10 goals, four assists and an average of 2.3 shots per game in 28 Premier League appearances (23 starts).

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Long tallied one cross and a yellow card on two fouls in Sunday's Euro 2016 round of 16 2-1 loss to France.

Long positioned himself exceptionally well between a loose ball in the box and Paul Pogba's clumsy challenge for a vital penalty early in the game. From there on, though, with the Irish mainly on the defensive side of the ball there wasn't much activity for the forward. He couldn't make much impact at the end, either, when his team needed him to wake up.

May 1, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Long scored a goal on two shots (one on target) in Sunday's 4-2 victory over Manchester City.

Long opened the scoring in the 25th minute before Sadio Mane put City away with his treble. The Irish striker has been on a strong run of form, scoring three goals and adding four assists in his past five matches—collecting 13 of the 15 available points in those matches. On the season, he's up to 10 goals and four assists in 27 Premier League matches.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Long scored once and assisted twice in Saturday's 4-2 win at Aston Villa.

After opening the scoring with a headed finish, Long twice set up Dusan Tadic to pick up a pair of assists. Firing six shots in total, the Irish international just completely overwhelmed Villa's backline. If you've been riding Long during his recent run of form, he's worth a gamble next week against a City defense that tends to struggle away from home.

April 16, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Long (dizziness) is starting Saturday against Everton.

The Toffees are using lots of squad rotation after playing midweek, so Long could have plenty of opportunities at goal alongside Graziano Pelle and Sadio Mane.

April 14, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Long was taken off of last weekend's match against Newcastle due to dizziness, but he has fully recovered and is available for Saturday's match against Everton, manager Ronald Koeman said Thursday.

Long has been a vital piece of the Saints' attack this season, and he is likely to slot right back into the starting XI in the attack with Graziano Pelle and Sadio Mane.

April 9, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Long scored with his only shot on goal and also added an assist in Saturday's 3-1 win over Newcastle.

Long's goal came four minutes in when he sliced through a hapless Magpies back line. His assist came late in the first half when he teed up Graziano Pelle's strike. The Irish forward has had a nice season, and this performance was one of his very best, though that's largely because he was facing Newcastle. Next week against an Everton team that allows its share of goals, staying with Long wouldn't be a bad option.
