PENALTY

Southampton 2-2 West Ham

DRAMA! Maya Yoshida is bundled down by Pablo Zabaleta.

Southampton have their second penalty of the match. In the 90th minute!

CLOSE!

Southampton 2-2 West Ham

Woah that was close! Nathan Redmond's strike is deflected on to the bar and out for a corner.

I think Joe Hart got a slight finger to it, and it may have taken a deflection off Jose Fonte, too.

Southampton 2-2 West Ham

Southampton break! Maya Yoshida pumps the ball down field and Shane Long is trying to do something with it.

But the Saints sub is wrestled off the ball.

The hosts build up again and Cedric Soares' ball is headed home by Long...but the whistle has already gone for a foul on Joe Hart.

Southampton 2-2 West Ham

Pedro Obiang rescues West Ham as Cedric Soares charges up the right.

Southampton's resulting corner comes in from James Ward Prowse and Shane Long, who's just come on as a sub, can't quite get on the end of it.

SUBSTITUTION

Southampton 2-2 West Ham

Charlie Austin is on for Manolo Gabbiadini.

CLOSE!

Southampton 2-2 West Ham

Not bad from Nathan Redmond. Not bad at all.

The Saints man strikes from distance but his effort goes just wide of the post.

Southampton 2-2 West Ham

Southampton try and push forward to find a winner but play is halted when Maya Yoshida clatters Diafra Sakho.

It looks like Saints are going to make their final changes, with Charlie Austin ready and waiting on the sidelines.

SUBSTITUTION

Southampton 2-2 West Ham

Pedro Obiang comes on in place of Declan Rice and the referee feels the need to have a chat to Slaven Bilic, who is very animated on the side line.

GOAL - Southampton 2-2 West Ham

Javier Hernandez

My word! What a comeback!

Javier Hernandez brings West Ham level by doing what he does best - poaching.

The former Manchester United forward pokes home after Diafra Sakho's header came off the woodwork.

Southampton 2-1 West Ham

James Ward-Prowse bangs a powerful cross into the box and it's headed away with Jose Fonte.

Ten-man West Ham survive another spell of pressure.

Southampton 2-1 West Ham

It's gone a bit quiet in the last few minutes.

Maya Yoshida punts a looping ball over the top but Nathan Redmond can't latch on to it.

Jack Stephens, having survived being almost decapitated by Marko Arnautovic's elbow earlier on, makes a rare dart forward.

Saints are rewarded with a corner.

SUBSTITUTION

Southampton 2-1 West Ham

A double sub by West Ham.

Diafra Sakho and Edimilson Fernandes come on for Antonio and Ayew.

This was Antonio's first match after four months out injured.

SUBSTITUTION

Southampton 2-1 West Ham

Mario Lemina, who was involved in quite a few battles out there today on his debut, is replaced by James Ward-Prowse for Southampton.

Slaven Bilic is getting Diafra Sakho ready to come on for the Hammers.

Southampton 2-1 West Ham

Joe Hart with a double punch to deny Southampton.

First of all he gets his hands on to an in-swinging cross and then a shot from distance from Dusan Tadic.

The England stopper did well on both occasions.

Southampton 2-1 West Ham

At the other end, Hernandez has another go at testing Fraser Forster.

At times, West Ham don't look like they're a man down.

CLOSE!

Southampton 2-1 West Ham

A sweet, sweet strike from Manolo Gabbidani goes just off the cross bar.

He took his time to take his shot and it was so close to squeezing into Joe Hart's net.

PENALTY APPEAL

Southampton 2-1 West Ham

West Ham go nuts. They reckon Jack Stephens has handled the ball in the box as he's tried to clear from a Hammers throw-in.

It looks like the Saints defender kept his arms by his side and it's come off the lower bit of his shoulder.

A difficult one to call, that.

Southampton 2-1 West Ham

The deadly duo of Cedric Soares and Dusan Tadic are at it again.

Southampton break forward and Tadic feeds to his team-mate, before the Portuguese shanks wide.

And now a good chance for West Ham at the other end! Hernandez whips in a cross-shot and Fraser Forster has to really stretch to clear it.

Southampton 2-1 West Ham

Steven Davis' right foot swings the ball into the box and it just clears the head of Maya Yoshida.

Michail Antonio is then caught by Mario Lemina and the West Ham forward looks in a bit of pain.

Mark Noble takes the resulting free-kick on the halfway line as Antonio walks away gingerly.

West Ham really don't need another injury problem.

I think time is running out for Slav. West Ham need a manager with a winning mentality. We have a good squad that needs a strong manager.

Southampton 2-1 West Ham

Dusan Tadic continues to cause problems on the right for Southampton.

His whipped ball angles across the box and although Gabbiadini is loitering, Joe Hart gets there first.

KICK-OFF

Southampton 2-1 West Ham

We're back under way.

Jay: Arnautovic's sending off was harsh. He can't be penalised if his elbow has a mind of its own.

Yousaf Ali: 's early days yet but things aren't looking good for Bilic. How long will he last with coaches like Tuchel available?

Ryan: Only thing falling faster than @WestHamUtd goal difference is Slaven's chances of being sacked, really worried for this season.

'West Ham lack discipline'

Trevor Sinclair

Ex-England winger on Final Score

West Ham are back in the game but they still need to change things or else they'll concede a few more this afternoon.

It just seems like the discipline within the squad isn't quite right. Arnautovic owes his team-mates an apology.

HALF-TIME

Southampton 2-1 West Ham

Three goals and a red card in 45 minutes.

What more could you want?

Southampton 2-1 West Ham

Nathan Redmond slides the ball into the box but there are no red and white shirts there.

Instead of leaving it for the keeper to pick up, Angelo Ogbonna decides to clear out and concedes a corner.

Luckily for the Hammers it comes to nothing.

GOAL - Southampton 2-1 West Ham

Javier Hernandez

Chicarito is off the mark and the Hammers are back in this match!

Michail Antonio wriggles free and has a go from distance. His shot is saved by Fraser Forster but the Saints keeper parries into the path of Javier Hernandez and he taps home from close range.

Southampton 2-0 West Ham

As Jose Fonte looks like he's about to clear from just outside his own penalty area, Steven Davis rushes in and gets there first.

The Southampton captain's shot is poor, though. It loops up and wide.

Southampton 2-0 West Ham

Southampton are firmly in control now against 10-man West Ham.

Nathan Redmond lets fly from distance but it's blocked by the Hammers defence.

Saints build up again. Tadic feeds to Cedric Soares on the right before Angelo Ogbonna gets his body in the way.

Corner to the hosts.

'The referee had no choice'

Alex Scott

Arsenal Ladies & England right-back on Final Score

Marko Arnautovic's elbow was already up before he started to run, so you can see his intention was there.

The referee has no choice but to give him a straight red card.

GOAL - Southampton 2-0 West Ham

Dusan Tadic

Tadic bangs his spot-kick down the middle and although Joe Hart almost gets his legs to it, it's in the back of the net.

PENALTY

Southampton 1-0 West Ham

An easy one for the referee. Jose Fonte drags down Steven Davis in the box and Saints have a penalty.

RED CARD - Marko Arnautovic

Southampton 1-0 West Ham

Oooooh. That is nasty.

Marko Arnautovic gets a straight red for simply ridiculous elbow on Jack Stephens. The West Ham forward just went for him. It seemed completely unprovoked.

What was he thinking?

Marko Arnautovic
PA

Southampton 1-0 West Ham

Mark Noble is dispossessed in the centre circle and Southampton steam forward.

Dusan Tadic makes another inviting run up the right but his ball in is once again cleared by the towering Pablo Zabaleta.

Southampton 1-0 West Ham

Mario Lemina's in the wars again. He's just taken a stinging ball to the stomach after it bounced around the edge of the West Ham penalty area.

The former Juventus midfielder is winded but it looks like he'll be OK to carry on...well, once he can breath again.

Southampton 1-0 West Ham

Marko Arnautovic goes down after colliding with Southampton's record signing Mario Lemina as they both went for a header.

Play continues until Mark Noble goes in with a risky challenge on Lemina. That looked nasty - his foot is off the ground.

Referee Lee Mason has a word with a couple of players but no action is taken against either side.

You lot are cheery today...

Joshua Edwards: West Ham may as well take a ticket for the relegation line and just wait there. Certainly be less embarrassing.

Andy: Over 9hrs without a league goal at St Mary's but only took 10 mins against West Ham. And people say we don't need new defenders

Andrew Priestley: Another conceded low to Hart's left. If he was half as good as he thought he was, he would be twice as good as he actually is.
