​Southampton without Long for West Ham clash

Southampton are rocked by the news that they will be without Shane Long for their Premier League clash against West Ham United.

The Saints and Hammers are going head to head on Saturday, with players returning from international duty.

Long tested positive for COVID-19 right before Ireland's World Cup Qualifier against Portugal.

He is currently self-isolating, and is certain to miss the game against West Ham.

"We have a few players who have been travelling a lot. We will have everybody back today except (Shane) Long," manager Ralph Hasenhuttl said during a pre-match press conference.

"He is in self-isolation in the hotel because of a positive Covid test but the rest will arrive today and I will have a look."
