Southampton were denied a rare third consecutive Premier League win as they were beaten 2-1 by West Ham.

Felipe Anderson struck twice to cancel out Nathan Redmond’s opening goal, with all three goals coming within a 10-minute span following the restart.

West Ham was heavily depleted with 10 first-team injuries but Anderson still proved too much for the hosts to handle.

Redmond bundled home the ugliest opening goal on the third attempt, before Anderson then equalised with a sensational effort that had Alex McCarthy well beaten.

Stuart Armstrong was denied by Lukasz Fabianski and unfortunately, for Saints, the resulting corner kick led to a blistering counter-attack the other way and Anderson fired home to give West Ham a 2-1 lead on the hour.

Jannik Vestergaard stopped Lucas Perez from doubling the deficit, but Southampton hardly had a sight of goal with Mario Lemina coming the closest to a leveller 15-minutes from full-time.
