Southampton 1 West Ham 1: Newbies nullify eachother in plod towards survival

You're great! are you....

It was all smiles for the two successful Premiership newbies at St Mary’s stadium as the teams shared the points with both edging ever closer to assured Premiership footie next year.  In a predictably tight encounter, Southampton enjoyed more of the possession but wereunable to convert this into decent scoring opportunities. The second half sparked in to life when Ramirez, enjoying considerable good luck as the ball ping-ponged off James Tomkins to allow him clear sight of goal and he coolly slotted the ball past Jaaskelainen.

                                                4 goals in 5 games!!! - the boy's a machine!
However, the Hammers were having none of it, and as they have done all season, immediately bounced back. Within minutes the on-form Andy Carroll capitalised upon some quick thinking from a Gary O’Neil free kick and slammed the ball in to the Saints net. Both sides pushed for all three points but in the end it was peace and love with satisfied smiles all round.

How delightful.
