Southampton 2-1 QPR

GRAZIANO PELLE SCORED a spectacular winner as Southampton’s great start to life under Ronald Koeman continued with a 2-1 triumph over QPR.

Pelle, a close-season signing from Feyenoord, found the net with a stunning acrobatic strike to secure a sixth successive win in all competitions for Koeman.

Ryan Bertrand had opened the scoring for the hosts early in the second half with his first goal for Southampton, which also served as his maiden strike in the Premier League.

QPR looked to have sealed a share of the spoils for Harry Redknapp against his former club when Charlie Austin levelled matters in style with his second of the campaign.

But Redknapp’s hopes were dashed by the brilliance of Pelle, whose goal-of-the season contender keeps Southampton in second place in the table.
