Pelle rewriting Southampton record books

Graziano Pelle is breaking records with Southampton.

The 29-year-old's double strike in the 8-0 hammering of Sunderland last week took his league tally to six Premier League goals in just eight games.

Only one striker has ever plundered more goals in the same timeframe for Saints in post-war football than the Italian international has done.

That was Colin Clarke, who scored seven goals in his first eight First Division games for Saints at the start of 1986/87.
