Michael Obafemi's First Premier League Goal Of The Season Was Worth The Wait

Michael Obafemi's First Premier League Goal Of The Season Was Worth The Wait

Michael Obafemi gave Southampton the lead in their Stephen's Day game against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

The Ireland international picked up a pass from Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg outside the Chelsea box and ran at their defence before curling a brilliant strike into the top left corner.

It is the 19-year-old's first league goal of the season and his second ever in the Premier League for Southampton. His first was scored a year ago against Huddersfield. He also scored the winner for Southampton in a League Cup tie against Fulham back in August.

Earlier this month, Southampton manager Ralph Hassenhuttl criticised the teenager saying that he "still has a lack of professionalism in his whole life".
