Long scored two goals on four shots (two on target) and picked up a yellow card in Saturday's 4-0 victory over Arsenal.

The Irish centre forward has been shuttled in and out of the starting XI over the past month, but shined in the second half of Saturday's match. He's scored three goals in his past five matches and has seven goals in 15 matches across all competitions. When healthy, Southampton has one of the finest stables of forwards with Graziano Pelle, Sadio Mane and Long, but there have been few times when the Saints have had their full compliment of forwards.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Long scored a goal on three shots (two on target) in Saturday's 3-1 defeat to Manchester City.

Since coming back from a sprained ankle, Long has played the full 90 in each of the past two matches and scored his first Premier League goal since opening day in the process. He now has five goals in 10 matches across all competitions, partly in thanks to a brace in the Capital One Cup against MK Dons. When healthy and playing, Long can be the center forward option the Saints need alongside Graziano Pelle and Sadio Mane.

Long surprised manager Ronald Koeman by returning from his ankle injury in Ireland's match versus Bosnia on Tuesday.

The 28-year-old had not trained, let alone played, in roughly six weeks, so his 40-minute cameo naturally comes as a bit of a surprise. However, with no reported setbacks stemming from the match, Long stands a chance to play against Stoke on Saturday. He is unlikely to see a full complement of minutes, but an appearance as a substitute is not out of the question.

Long will miss Ireland's match against Bosnia on Friday due to the ankle injury he sustained in October, reports Sky Sports.

Long's ankle will not heal in time for the trip to Bosnia, but may have a chance to be fit for Ireland's return match on Monday.

Long (ankle) has been ruled out for Saturday's fixture against Sunderland.

The 28-year-old center forward has struggled to get or stay on the pitch this season, playing in just four Premier League matches. In the League Cup, he showed against MK Dons why he can still be valuable, scoring two goals and adding two assists; however, he has no goals in Premier League play since an Aug. 9 substitute appearance—the first match day of the EPL season.

Long (ankle) remains out for the match against AFC Bournemouth.

Long has been progressing well, however he is not healthy enough to play this weekend, according to manager Ronald Koeman. The striker has appeared in four Premier League matches, scoring one goal on six shots this season. In his absence, Graziano Pellé should continue making starts up top for Southampton with fellow striker Jay Rodriguez seeing time.

Long will be sidelined for 2-to-4 weeks because of an ankle injury, manager Ronald Koeman said Thursday.

Long picked up the injury while on international duty, and while the ailment certainly doesn't help the Saints' depth, his fantasy value was somewhat limited given his inconsistent playing time.
