    • - Don't forget you can watch highlights of this match, along with every Premier League game, from 00:01 on Monday morning (UK only).
    • 90+4' And that's it. A draw is probably a better result for West Ham given their poor form on the road but it does move both clubs further away from the relegation mire.
    • 90+3' Rodriguez almost wins it. He charges at the West Ham defence and fires on goal but Jaaskelainen pushes it wide. Puncheon can’t get to the rebound but he was offside anyway.
    • 90+2' Nolan is offside as the ball is lifted to him wide.
    • 90+1' West Ham with a late corner - can they add to their three away wins this season? No, poor ball.
    • 90' Four added minutes for either side to grab a winner.
    • 89' The West Ham fans are in good voice as they appear happy with a point. Big Sam gesticulating manically on the side though.
    • 88' Puncheon has a shot from distance but it is charged down.
    • 87' Puncheon leads a break but his pass to the over-lapping Clyne has too much on it.
    • 86' The Saints finishing firmly in control but can they grab a winner? West Ham sitting very deep here and they are inviting pressure.
    • 84' Taylor on for Vaz Te – as a former Pompey man, Taylor gets a customary booing.
    • 83' Lambert’s free-kick is over via the wall.
    • 82' There is a coming together on the edge of the area and Vaz Te remains down but Dean gives the free-kick in favour of the Saints.
    • 80' Rodriguez leads the charge forward and he cuts inside but the numbers get the better of him and West Ham clear for a corner which is, in turn, dealt with ease.
    • 78' Ramirez is hooked for Puncheon.
    • 77' Rodriguez wins another free-kick from Pogatetz but Ramirez’s set-piece has too much on it.
    • 76' Rodriguez gets in behind again and his cut back is cleared. Carroll breaks and draws a smart save from Boruc.
    • 75' Ramirez has another effort from distance but the effort has neither the accuracy or power to threaten the goal.
    • 74' Southampton moving the ball from right to left as they look to prise open this rigid defence but West Ham stick to their positions well and manage to get a foot in. The ball comes straight back at them though as Carroll takes a heavy touch.
    • 73' Ramirez elects to shoot from the resultant free-kick but it is high and wide to the groans of the home fans.
    • 72' Rodriguez takes an early nice touch, turns his man and runs at Pogatetz who puts in a very unconventional tackle and he is duly in the book.
    • 71' Lallana is to come off as Rodriguez enters the fray.
    • 70' Rodriguez, who has been suffering from a virus this week, is getting ready to come on – can he make it four goals in four games to secure all three points?
    • 69' Carroll is down having caught a stray elbow in the face.
    • 68' Collison swivels in the box and flashes a volley over the bar.
    • 67' Harsh on Southampton whose Achilles heel of set-pieces comes back to haunt them and West Ham have the initiative.
    • 66' GOOOAL!! Lallana breaks from the wall to charge down Carroll’s effort from the free-kick – it takes a slight flick off Davis and the ball flies past Boruc. 1-1.
    • 65' A posse of O'Neil, Carroll and Collins over it.
    • 64' Late and poor challenge from Hooiveld on the edge on Diame.
    • 63' Tomkins is off for Pogatetz. The defender picked up an injury when battling for a ball at a corner.
    • 62' Clyne makes some ground down the right but his cross is cleared.
    • 61' Ramirez has a shot blocked for a corner – which is cleared but the hosts have them pinned back.
    • 60' West Ham almost with the immediate riposte. Vaz Te’s flicked header at the corner is cleared off the line with Nolan lurking.
    • 59' GOOOAL!!! Boruc pumps the ball long. Collins half clears. Ramirez takes it on his chest and has a volley blocked. The break of the ball falls to Ramirez who goes into the box and waits for Jaaskelainen to go down before slotting home. 1-0.
    • 57' Jarvis is off with Collison on in his stead. Vaz Te is off over to the left now in a slight reshuffle.
    • 56' Big Sam is readying a substitution.
    • 55' Diame is having more influence now.
    • 54' The Hammers are putting a lot more pressure on the hosts now who have been forced to play back to Boruc twice in succession.
    • 53' Yoshida misses the ball into the box and Carroll reacts first but his volley is just wide from deep inside the box.
    • 52' During Mauricio Pochettino’s reign at Southampton, the club have averaged 1.3 points per game. Under his predecessor, Nigel Adkins, Saints they averaged just one.
    • 51' West Ham fail to clear the ball and Ramirez has a shot from the edge and Collins blocks with his face.
    • 50' West Ham have begun the second half further up the pitch which is allowing them to put pressure on the hosts.
    • 47' Bit of a slow start to the second half.
    • 46' Back underway as the home side get us underway.
    • 45+2 And that's it from the first half.
    • 45+1 Cork lifts the ball to Lambert who flashes a header just wide.
    • 45' There is one minute of added time.
    • 44' Jaaskelainen takes a while take his goal kick as the game heads to half-time.
    • 43' This one is really boiling over now and half-time can’t come quick enough.
    • 41' Carroll is in the book for dissent.
    • 40' Nolan fouls Schneiderlin and his foot is high – Lallana has a word with the referee looking for the booking. Nolan and Lallana exchange a bit of abuse before Ramirez's cross-cum-shot from 30 yards drops wide.
    • 39' Andy Carroll pulls Yoshida's shirt and Dean brings the play to a halt.
    • 38' Schneiderlin hauls back Diame as he breaks forward – he is already booked and is lucky not to get his marching orders.
    • 37' Another free-kick for the home side. Ramirez shoots from distance but it is easy for the keeper.
    • 36' Rickie Lambert is currently the highest scoring Englishman in the Premier League. The striker has netted 14 times in his 32 appearances.
    • 35' Ramirez swings the ball over and Lambert – lurking at the far post – slides in but Jaaskelainen turns his effort first on to the post and then wide of goal. What a save.
    • 34' Double foul from West Ham there. First O'Neil upends Ramirez before Cork nuts Nolan. Free-kick in a dangerous area wide right.
    • 33' Lambert is found wide by Davis and the forward crosses for Lallana who turns and shoots. His effort is blocked but he may have been better served squaring the ball for Schneiderlin.
    • 31' Davis picks up a loose ball in front of the West Ham back four but he looks to feed Ramirez through a gap that wasn’t really there.
    • 30' The Saints play out from the back but the ball in behind is a little too straight and it skips out for a goal-kick.
    • 29' Demel is beginning to make some strides down the right and it is down that channel that he feeds Vaz Te inside the box. The former Barnsley man picks out Nolan just inside the box but Hooiveld makes the block. Best chance of the half.
    • 28' Yoshida fouls with the ball in the air and Dean gives the free-kick to relieve the pressure on the West Ham defence.
    • 27' Lambert wins a free-kick from Collins to ironic cheers from the home faithful. Lambert shoots from fully forty yards but Carroll sticks out a boot to concede a corner.
    • 26' Nolan slings the free-kick into the box from just inside his own half but Carroll is adjudged to have fouled whilst the ball was in flight.
    • 25' Fox is in the book for a pretty wild challenge on Guy Demel.
    • 24' In contrast, Ramirez and Lallana are getting in and around Lambert and look far more threatening.
    • 23' Carroll is currently very isolated and the visitors really need to get up in support of him. That rasping shot aside, Vaz Te has contributed very little.
    • 21' There have been a couple of late challenges out there thus far and referee Mike Dean needs to get a handle on this.
    • 20' O'Brien is late on Schneiderlin and the Saints have a free-kick.
    • 19' Southampton look a very accomplished side. They are lucid in attack but stout in defence.
    • 18' West Ham have scored the joint lowest (9) goals away from home this season.
    • 17' Cork slips the ball to the returning Lallana. The Saints captain flashes the ball across the box but Demel ushers Cork – who had continued his run – off the ball.
    • 15' Schneiderlin finds Clyne in space down the right but he slows the play down before finding Ramirez on the edge. The impetus of the move has faded and West Ham again clear.
    • 14' Lambert has dropped deep a few times to link the play effectively but this time he gets the ball caught under his feet and Collins steps out to clear.
    • 13' Clyne skips down the right and into the box but there are enough West Ham bodies there to clear.
    • 12' Fox whips a cross in but Jaaskelainen claims.
    • 10' Ramirez fouls O’Brien. The full-back reacts with a little push but there’s little doing.
    • 9' West Ham have settled now but continue to hold their line rigidly on the 18-yard line, which is inviting pressure.
    • 8' Jarvis wins a corner but the delivery is too deep. Southampton half-clear and the visitors work it to Vaz Te, whose shot has enough about it to worry Boruc into a jump but it fizzes just over.
    • 7' Fox is adjudged to have hauled Carroll back and Dean gives a soft free-kick on the edge of the box. Collins hits it straight at the wall.
    • 6' Nolan makes a challenge on Schneiderlin but the West Ham captain pulls out last minute. Schneiderlin hits the deck before getting to his feet to receive a yellow for simulation.
    • 5' The side from east London are sitting rigidly deep.
    • 4' Southampton are firmly in the ascendancy here already.
    • 3' Davis slips a ball through for the run of Lallana but he takes a fraction too long to get his shot off and Tomkins makes a decent last-ditch block.
    • 2' The Hammers go long again and, while Carroll does well to win the aerial battle, there is no colleague within ten yards so his efforts are in vain.
    • 1' West Ham get the game underway and immediately go long for Carroll.
    • 14:55 We’re almost underway as the West Ham fans make their presence felt with a rousing chorus of “Bubbles”.
    • 14:50 The referee officiating at St Mary's today is Mike Dean.
    • 14:45 Match odds: Southampton (19/20), West Ham United (10/3), Draw (13/5).
    • 14:40 Sam Allardyce was slightly less verbose in his side's appraisal but he has a point: "“If we win it’ll be the game that makes us safe. I find it difficult to believe anyone would overtake 40 points.”
    • 14:35 Saints boss Mauricio Pochettino has been firing platitudes at Jay Rodriguez: "Jay Rodriguez, in the two months I have been here, has developed a lot. He has great potential and he has a lot more to go - his potential hasn't reached its peak yet and he has much more to give. It is clear to me that his football talent and football skills make him a Premier League player." Rodriguez is only fit enough for the bench today though.
    • 14:30 West Ham have on-loan striker Andy Carroll available again after he was ineligible for last weekend's goalless draw against parent club Liverpool. Midfielder Joe Cole (hamstring) and Mark Noble (shoulder) are still sidelined alongside defenders Winston Reid (hip) and George McCartney (knee).
    • 14:25 A virus has sidelined Luke Shaw while Jason Puncheon and Jay Rodriguez are only fit enough for the bench as the Saints look to hit 40 points for the season.
