  • GOOOOALLLLL!!!! WHAT A FINISH!!!!!! It's an absolute cracker from Che Adams and Southampton lead 1-0!!! The Scotland striker is forced into running the ball away from goal under pressure from Troost-Ekong, but makes himself time to turn and shoot, and his shot from the edge of the area flies past Foster into the top corner!! It's a great, great goal, and just what Southampton's bright start deserves.
