Scoring comes second nature to young forward Dan N'Lundulu, who netted twice during Saints' sensational comeback victory over Manchester City yesterday.

The goals were scored in the 87th and 93rd minutes of the tie, completing a turnaround from being 3-1 down just moments before, eventually winning the game 4-3.

The 20-year-old, who has suffered with more than one long-term injury during his time at the club, is keen for this season to be a turning point after signing a one-year contract extension in the summer.

Talking about yesterday's victory, and his Southampton future, N'Lundulu said: "It was a great win.

"We had to hang in there because Man City are a good team. We conceded a lot of possession so just had to be patient.

"We had to sit and and wait for our time. Luckily, as you can see, our time came. 

"After we scored the equaliser, we said as a team, make sure we stay focussed and stay in the game. 

"Things in life just happen, Harlem [Hale] set the ball back to me and I don't know what went through my head. It was the last minute, put it bins.

"I'm happy to be on the pitch and back scoring. This is a big season for me, so now I'm focussed on the next game against Derby and being ready to go again."
