West Ham 1-3 Southampton

West Ham lost at home 3-1 to Southampton, and produced a polar opposite performance to the one at Crystal Palace last week.

The Irons never really got going, and despite taking the lead thanks to a wicked deflection off a Mark Noble shot, it was clear Southampton were the better side.

They were at West Ham right from the off, and their tactics of closing down so well proved too much.

Southampton were rewarded for their determination and equalised right on the stroke of half time, which set the tone of the second half.

West Ham were second best, and simply could not get going – despite the introduction of lively Ravel Morrison and Enner Valencia.

This result has once again shown that West Ham struggle with consistency, as they were unrecognisable from the side that dismantled Crystal Palace last week.

As expected their were boo’s all round for the manager and players, as there was simply not one out there that deserved anything more.
