Saints fans call for Pellegrino's head after Palace's late show

Southampton 1 Crystal Palace 2

By Nick Mashiter

Shane Long's first goal in 325 days was undermined by Crystal Palace once again coming from behind to secure three key points in a 2-1 win at Southampton.

The striker's struggles in front of goal have characterised those of his team since the final weeks of the reign of former head coach Claude Puel.

Under Mauricio Pellegrino they have become contenders for relegation and, after falling to 16th place as Palace rose to 14th with finishes from James McArthur and Luka Milivojevic, their supporters chanted for the manager's sacking.

The Saints took the lead in the 17th minute after Jeremy Pied played a ball into the area for Long to end his goal drought.

Palace's equaliser came in the 68th minute when Christian Benteke nodded into McArthur's path, and the midfielder netted.

And when Andros Townsend squared to Milivojevic in the 80th minute, the Serbian curled into the bottom left corner.
