Tella on Target as Saints Ease Past Fulham


Southampton secured back-to-back Premier League wins for the first time since December, overcoming already-relegated Fulham 3-1 at St Mary’s.

The hosts took the lead in the 27th minute from the game’s first shot on target as Che Adams fired home from close range following a James Ward-Prowse free-kick.

They doubled their lead on the hour mark when substitute Nathan Tella tapped the ball into the net just minutes after coming on to the field, his first senior goal in professional football.

Fabio Carvalho marked his full Premier League debut by pulling one back for Fulham in the 75th minute. The 18-year-old was played through by Bobby Decordova-Reid and fired the ball in off the underside of the crossbar.

Substitute Theo Walcott soon restored Southampton’s two-goal lead as his deflected shot went past Alphonse Areola to secure a second home win in a week for Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side, moving them up to 13th place ahead of the weekend’s remaining games.
