Last night's victory was helped by Japanese defender Maya Yoshida's early opener within ten minutes. But, that task was not helped by Victor Wanyama's red card with around 30 minutes left to play - his third sending off in the 2015-16 Premier League season following red cards against AFC Bournemouth and Norwich City already.
The result half hour saw Southampton defend for their lives to earn a priceless victory to gain ground on Saturday's opponents. A West Ham win would have seen Slaven Bilic's side extend the gap between them and Saints by eight points. But, the win means Southampton only trail by two points as they close in on the top six of the Premier League.
So, if you are based in the States, relive the game with the match highlights provided by NBC free of the stress you would have been feeling while the Hammers barraged the sturdy Saints defence.
