    Southampton out of relegation zone with 2-1 win against Leicester

    LEICESTER, England (AP) — Ten-man Southampton climbed out of the English Premier League relegation zone as Ralph Hasenhuettl’s revolution continued with a 2-1 win at Leicester last Saturday.

    James Ward-Prowse’s penalty and Shane Long’s first goal in nine months earned the victory at King Power Stadium.

    Long’s strike, in first-half injury time, came just 120 seconds after Yan Valery was sent off for a second bookable offence.

    Wilfred Ndidi pulled a goal back in the second half for Leicester, which are led by former Southampton manager Claude Puel.

    Southampton moved a point above the league drop zone after just a fourth win of the season. Three of them have come under boss Hasenhuettl as he revives the Saints just a month after replacing Mark Hughes.

    Leicester dropped to eighth with boss Puel under fire from fans after performances lacking inspiration.
