It was the perfect week for the striker, who welcomed his baby daughter into the world and scored from his first touch while making his debut for England.
This week, the forward is expected to line up against Sunderland, who struggled on their opening day of the campaign due to a 1-0 defeat to Fulham, despite a number of Paolo Di Canio's new signings impressing.
Possible starting lineups
Southampton: Boruc; Chambers, Fonte, Lovren, Shaw; Wanyama, Schneiderlin, Ward-Prowse, Lallana; Osvaldo, Lambert
Sunderland: Westwood, Celustka, Roberge, O'Shea, Colback, Giaccherini, Larsson, Cabral, Johnson, Sessegnon, Altidore
Sports Mole says: 2-1
