61 touches, 2 goals; Pelle impresses in Southampton win over Swansea

Graziano Pellè: By The Numbers:  : 20160312

The Italian ended a long goal drought to seal all three points for his side.

Graziano Pelle was in fine form at the Britannia Stadium as his side were 2-1 winners against Stoke City.

The Saints managed to secure all three points in an open game, and could have been more comfortable winners had Dusan Tadic not wasted a chance to make the score 3-0 in their favour.

It was two goals from striker Pelle that sealed the win for them though, as the Italian managed to end a goal draught that had been running since November.

And a look at the stats shows just how good a game he enjoyed.
