Long has been ruled out for Sunday's match against Manchester City after suffering a hamstring injury during Thursday's Europa League match against Inter Milan.

Given how well Charlie Austin is playing, it was pretty unlikely that Long was going to start, so while his absence hurts the Saints' depth, it's unlikely to affect many fantasy decisions.

Long (hamstring) will have to pass a late fitness test ahead of Sunday's match with Burnley.

Long picked up the hamstring injury while on duty with the Republic of Ireland. Nathan Redmond has played every minute of all seven Premier League matches and Charlie Austin has been in great form with five goals and one assist in five matches. If Long is able to go, he is unlikely to start due to the aforementioned duo being preferred at this time.

Long's substitution during the World Cup qualifier win over Moldova has been due to an injury, according to Southampton's official website.

Long started the match despite injury complaints before that and is still unclear if the newly picked up issue is related to the previous problems. The striker will be assessed once he goes back to Southampton. If he can't suit up the on-form Charlie Austin will surely grab another start upfront versus Burnley on Sunday.

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.
