Saints edge 5 goal thriller
Jan Bednarek secured a rare away victory for Southampton as West Ham’s recent slump in form continued.
The result gave Saints what was only their second win on the road this season, and a third straight loss for the Hammers.
Southampton had taken the lead after only eight minutes when Mohammed Elyounoussi finished from the edge of the penalty area.
At halftime, David Moyes brought on Mikhail Antonio returning from a spell out with Covid 19 and it only took him four minutes to make an impact – pouncing from a corner to put them back into the game.
James Ward Prowse put Southampton in front again with a penalty but the Hammers pulled themselves level once more through Said Benrahma.
But the home side had no response when Jan Bednarek popped up 20 minutes from time to give Saints their first win in seven.
