  1. Post update

    Friday night football is done.

    This is what's coming up tomorrow. Join me on the live text from 11:00 BST.

    Can Watford cause an upset at Manchester City? And will there be another Pukki Party when Norwich travel to Burnley?

  2. Post update

    Chief football writer Phil McNulty was at St Mary's for tonight's game. You can check out his report here.

  3. 'Lost the game in first half'

    FT: Southampton 1-3 Bournemouth


    Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl speaking to Sky Sports: "The finish was not important anymore. If you lose 2-1 or 3-1 it does not make too much difference. We lost the game in the first half.

    "In the second half we were sharp. Had about 26 shots on goal to six from Bournemouth but the most important stat is the goals. They scored three, we scored once.

    "We weren't aggressive enough and too easy in the first half. It is not easy to be 1-0 down after 10 minutes. We had a lot of blocked shots and misses near the post. It was a good performance in the second half but without a result.

    "For the second goal was had a lot of players in our attacking box so it was not easy to defend.

    "We showed a good reaction because we knew we needed to be brave. We changed our shape and were aggressive for the second ball. It gave us 64% possession and we had a lot of shots. Maybe we didn't deserve to take something because of our first half."

  4. Post update

    Here you go Bournemouth fans. You're sitting in a Champions League place! Enjoy it while you can.

  5. 'We were devastating at times'

    Southampton 1-3 Bournemouth


    Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson, speaking to BBC Match of the Day: "Probably the easiest goal I will score. A gift. But that's what you get for being patient. We weren't at our best, the final pass was poor.

    "We are starting to be more consistent. We would probably have drawn that 2-2 in previous seasons. The defence was resilient and we got our rewards at the end.

    "In periods we were good. Devastating at times. But we were also sloppy too.

    "When you score goals, goals like today fall for you. It is nice to have four goals but I want more.

    "We are making more history with the boys and progress with the team."

  6. The best Cherries stats

    FT: Southampton 1-3 Bournemouth

    Harry Wilson's strike was his 25th goal in English league football (excluding play-offs) with three of those coming in just five Premier League games for Bournemouth.

    Since the start of last season, no player has scored more Premier League goals for Southampton than midfielder James Ward-Prowse (eight, level with Danny Ings).

    And since the start of last season, Callum Wilson has been directly involved in 16 goals away from home in the Premier League (11 goals, 5 assists), more than any other player.

  7. 'It's a very nice feeling'

    FT: Southampton 1-3 Bournemouth


    Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe speaking to BBC Match of the Day: "It was a nice moment. We rarely get those moments in football where you get that pure emotion and joy for a few seconds. Then you start thinking about next week!

    "You want the players brought down to earth because you want the focus on consistent success.

    "In the first half we were okay. We didn't hit the heights we are capable of. We were scrappy and didn't keep the ball as well as I wanted but we had spirit and sometimes that's the most important thing.

    "In the second half, we were reactive and looked tired and that's where we needed to show our heart to see the game out. There were some heroics from our goalkeeper too."

    On being in the top four: "That's a very nice feeling at this early stage but that's all it is. We need to keep grounded."

  8. 'Football is about scoring'

    Southampton 1-3 Bournemouth


    Southampton midfielder Oriel Romeu, speaking to Sky Sports: "We were there last 10-15 minutes and had a few chances but didn't get them in. Football is about scoring goals. The way we played was alright but in regard to scoring goals we didn't. We were doing the game plan second half but the big mistakes were in the first half and it gave us a mountain to climb.

    "We were not getting enough second balls. They were playing the way they wanted, attacking us with space at the back."

    Anthony: Huge props to Eddie Howe and what he’s achieving with this Bournemouth side, soo brilliant to watch. Wonder where Howe will go next? He deserves a bigger challenge..

  10. Post update

    Kevin Nolan

    Former West Ham captain on BBC Radio 5 Live

    Tony Pulis [below] hit the nail on head with the Burnley thing. That put a lot of suitors off. And there are a lot of foreign owners. He went back to Bournemouth and settled. The supporters love him and he loves the club. That’s maybe one of the reasons.

  11. Post update

    Tony Pulis

    Former Bournemouth manager on BBC Radio 5 Live

    Why haven't bigger clubs approached Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe?

    I can't explain it. There are a lot of foreign owners in the Premier League who go for foreign managers. Eddie has done a wonderful job over a long period of time. He's still got the opportunity to [get a job like that]. It might be the fact he went to Burnley and didn't do well. He desperately deserves a chance.

  12. 'We had to fight and believe'

    FT: Southampton 1-3 Bournemouth


    Bournemouth defender Nathan Ake speaking to Sky Sports: "It was a very tough game. The fans are buzzing. It was a great three points. The manager said to put the ball in the box.

    "It was a great ball and it fell on my head. In the second half we made it difficult for ourselves. We didn't keep hold of the ball and had to defend more.

    "The last result against Everton was great so it gives you confidence. But we had to fight and believe we could win.

    When Gary Neville jokes about their top four position: "It is way too early but obviously it's great to be here!"

  13. Post update

    FT: Southampton 1-3 Bournemouth

    Bournemouth have won four of their last eight away games in the Premier League now. They had lost nine in succession beforehand.

  14. 'Centre-back should attack ball'

    FT: Southampton 1-3 Bournemouth

    Tony Pulis

    Former Bournemouth manager on BBC Radio 5 Live

    With that last goal, you hope and pray the centre-back attacks the ball and the goalkeeper should never have been involved.

  15. Get Involved

    #bbcfootball or text 81111 (UK only)

    Kyle: Brilliant from Bournemouth under the cosh for much of the 2nd half yet they see it through and win 3-1. If they can start defending better with the strike power they have in their side possibly they could be the ones to challenge for the top 6

  16. 'Very positive'

    FT: Southampton 1-3 Bournemouth

    Tony Pulis

    Former Bournemouth manager on BBC Radio 5 Live

    It's a fantastic start to the season for Bournemouth. Fair play to Eddie Howe and the lads. They were very positive tonight. They scored three goals, had another cancelled out and could have had a penalty.


    Southampton 1-3 Bournemouth

    All over. Bournemouth claim their first ever win at St Mary's.

  18. GOAL - Southampton 1-3 Bournemouth

    Callum Wilson

    Oh no! This is a horror show.

    A long ball forward from Aaron Ramsdale causes all kinds of problems for Jan Bednarek and keeper Angus Gunn.

    The two don't know what the other is doing and in the end, Callum Wilson races onto a free ball and pokes into an open net.

    Callum Wilson celebrates
  19. CLOSE!

    Southampton 1-2 Bournemouth

    Sofiane Boufal fires another shot from long range and again, Aaron Ramsdale has to be alert. Danny Ings' strike was blocked a few seconds before too!

    Nervous times.


    Southampton 1-2 Bournemouth

    Bit more time-wasting here. Andrew Surman replaces Joshua King.
