Analysis: Southampton's struggle for goals

A stalemate welcomed in the new Premier League season at St Mary's Stadium as the Saints and Swansea struggled to find any goal-scoring prowess: a rather exciting yet tedious 90 minutes of football where only two shots on target were registered.
Southampton have now gone 545 minutes without a goal at St Mary's, a run which began back in April. Yet, after 90 seconds when striker Gabbiadini fizzled his header against the woodwork, this unfortunate stat looked to be coming to an end, 28 attempts on goal followed Gabbiadini’s effort.
