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 on Saturday.
Long's strike, in first-half injury time, came just 120 seconds after Yan Valery was sent off for a second bookable offense.
Wilfred Ndidi pulled a goal back in the second half for Leicester, which is 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.
