Southampton 3-2 West Ham

A Charlie Austin penalty helped Southampton secure their first win of the season in a five-goal thriller at St. Mary's.

Saints took the lead through Manolo Gabbiadini who finished well when combining with Nathan Redmond.

West Ham were then reduced to ten men when Marko Arnautovic was sent off just after the half-hour mark.

Saints capitalised to double their advantage when Steven Davis was brought down in the area. Dusan Tadic stepped up to score from the penalty spot.

Chicharito pulled a goal back for the visitors just before the break.

After the break, Chicharito showed his poaching goalscoring instincts again to draw the game level for the Hammers to make it 2-2.

Saints kept going despite letting a two-goal lead slip and eventually got their rewards with a late penalty winner from Charlie Austin.
