    Time:90'
    • West Bromwich Albion
    • Southampton
    • That’s it. West Brom 2-0 Southampton. Thanks for joining us!
    • 90+3' Not much time left now, even for a consolation.
    • 90+2' Great ball into Lambert and he knocks down to Lallana who shoots at the keeper. Foster just too close to him.
    • 90+1' Do Prado bundles over Yacob. Nothing given.
    • 90' Another poor pass by Lukaku with Fortune in acres of space down the right. Three added minutes here.
    • 89' Yoshida got up very well and got plenty of power into the header. Alas it goes wide.
    • 88' Southampton still trying and win another corner as McAuley heads over.
    • 87' West Brom have been very secure in seeing this out since scoring the second. Not over yet as Saints win a corner.
    • 86' No surprise, the match sponsors have awarded the man of the match to Odemwingie.
    • 85' Lukaku is nearly in again but it’s good covering defending by Yoshida.
    • 84' Yoshida gives it away and it’s played first time to Lukaku. Southampton get back to defend the threat.
    • 83' No hat trick for Odemwingie but what a game he has had.
    • 82' West Brom sub: Odemwingie off for Fortune.
    • 81' Southampton substitution: Shaw on for Fox.
    • 80' Lallana hits the deck under a challenge from Olsson. Ooh that looked a penalty! Blocked off it and sent flying,
    • 79' Little over ten minutes for Southampton to rescue something and it doesn’t seem likely.
    • 78' Corner to Southampton but it’s just over the head of Do Prado, who then concedes a free kick.
    • 77' Mulumbu lifts it to Lukaku. His cross finds Brunt at the back post and he volleys just wide. Should have been three.
    • 76' Davis gets a decent cross in and Do Prado heads well wide. Half chance.
    • 75' Southampton substitution: Ramirez and Rodriguez for Do Prado and Mayuka
    • 74' Mulumbu concedes a corner. Can Southampton capitalise.
    • 73' Southampton must believe they’re not out of this yet. A goal would really spice things up. No sign of a substitution as yet.
    • 72' Poor first touch from Lukaku and it’s out for a Southampton throw.
    • 71' If West Brom win tonight it will be their best start in the top flight for almost 30 years.
    • 70' West Brom sub: Long off for Lukaku.
    • 69' Long has Gera in support with a two on two situation but may have seen him late. Great chance but Saints defend well.
    • 68' Despite a suspected hand ball in the lead up to his first, Odemwingie has been brilliant tonight.
    • 67' Odemwingie putting in a star performance, tracking Danny Fox all the way back.
    • 66' Gera feeds long in the box but good defending from Southampton averts the danger for the time being.
    • 65' West Brom sub: Brunt on for Dorrans.
    • 64' All West Brom at the moment. Towering header from McAuley is over the bar.
    • 63' Great saving challenge from Clyne on Long in the box. Had to be perfect.
    • 62' West Brom fans loving it at the moment. Chanting ‘you’re going down with the Villa’.
    • 61' Yoshida offside and the attack fizzles out.
    • 60' Really tall order for Southampton but they win a free kick on the edge of the box. West Brom head clear. Corner.
    • 59' Goal West Brom! It’s a great counter attack and Long finds Odemwingie in the centre. He gets between the centre backs to head home.
    • 58' Olsson penalised for a challenge on Fonte and Saints survive.
    • 57' Gera’s delivery is straight at the wall. Another corner.
    • 56' Lambert feeds Fox on the overlap but his cross is picked out by Foster. Fonte brings down Long. Free kick.
    • 55' Surely not long before Nigel Adkins has to gamble on fresh legs.
    • 54' Poor cross from Odemwingie and Saints breathe again.
    • 53' Rodriguez feeds Clyne who whips in a dangerous ball. Southampton committing bodies forward and leaving themselves exposed.
    • 52' A lively start to this second half, certainly more action than at the start of the first. Saints giving it a real go.
    • 51' Clyne slides a lovely ball through to Rodriguez but Foster just gets there first. Close again for Southampton.
    • 50' Jones joins the attack and whips in a dangerous ball. Saints scramble it away.
    • 48' Southampton certainly not getting the rub of the green in this match. Unlucky to be behind.
    • 47' Dorrans gets in an early cross but Saints defend and mount an attack of their own. Rodriguez whips in a cross and it falls to Lambert. His shot cannons off the bar!
    • 46' No changes to either side at the break.
    • 45' We’re back underway here at The Hawthorns. Odemwingie patting his arm, seemingly admitting he used it in the build-up to his opener.
    • 45+1' It falls to Odemwingie wide on the right but he blasts wide. HALF TIME: West Brom 1-0 Southampton.
    • 45' Close again for West Brom. One added minute.
    • 44' Great chance for Long, saved by Gazzaniga. It falls to Odemwingie and his shot is blocked!
    • 43' Odemwingie loses out and back come Southampton. They have a throw in the Baggies half.
    • 42' Foster drops the resultant corner but luckily nobody is there and he picks it up at the second time of asking.
    • 41' Lallana streams forward and wins a corner for the Saints.
    • 40' Ridgewell plays it to long who heads down to Mulumbu. His shot is deflected for a corner.
    • 39' Saints doing all the pressing now. Schneiderlin pumps one into the box but Foster grabs it.
    • 38' Tough on Saints really, they’ve fought well and on balance don’t really deserve to be behind.
    • 37' Lallana tries to feed Rodriguez on the edge of the box and he looked to have been caught by Olsson. Nothing given and Saints aggrieved.
    • 36' That’s 27 goals conceded by Southampton this season.
    • 35' GOAL West Brom! And it’s Odemwingie again in shooting space on the edge of the box. It takes a slight deflection off Yoshida before beating Gazzaniga.
    • 33' Jones flagged offside in space on the right. Looked harsh and was a good attacking position.
    • 32' Rodriguez loses possession and goes down. Nothing given there. Odemwingie tries another shot on the edge of the box but it’s well off target.
    • 31' Well the best chances for either side fell in the same minute. Some action at last.
    • 30' Straight up the other end, Odemwingie cuts inside and shoots just wide of Gazzaniga’s post! That was close.

    • 29' Mulumbu fouled by Schneiderlin. Free kick West Brom.
    • 28' Lallana picks up a loose clearance and gets in behind Jones. He whips in a cross but nobody there. Saints almost get a lucky break there.
    • 27' Fox releases Lallana and he wins a throw wide on the left.
    • 26' The delivery almost catches out Gazzaniga and he palms it away for another corner.
    • 25' Free kick to West Brom. Swung in towards Olsson who heads it to Long. He can’t quite reach it but they win another corner.
    • 23' Long ball from Mulumbu has far too much on it and Gazzaniga has it.
    • 22' Yacob elects to shoot from the edge of the box but pulls it tamely wide. Neither keeper seriously tested yet.
    • 21' Mulumbu finds Long on the edge of the box but his shot is woeful. High, wide and handsome. A mistake from Ramirez and Long should have done much better.
    • 20' Poor cross from Jones easily cut out by Lambert.
    • 19' Odemwingie cuts inside Fox and shoots on goal but Olsson gets a head on it and it flies over. Best chance yet.
    • 18' Good defending prevents Odemwingie from getting his cross in. Throw to West Brom.
    • 17' Mulumbu does well and wins a free kick from Schneiderlin’s challenge.
    • 16' Foster got down well but never really any great danger there. Poor ball from Lallana is cut out.
    • 15' The ball falls to Lambert on the half volley and he smacks it straight into the arms of Foster. Our first shot on goal!
    • 14' Not a great deal to shout about so far, no clear cut chances or even shots on goal as yet.
    • 13' West Brom move it quickly and Rodriguez brings down McAuley. He was lucky not to get a yellow for that one.
    • 12' It’s poor from Ramirez, straight into the wall.
    • 11' Lovely turn from Lallana and he is brought down. Great set piece chance for the visitors.
    • 10' Schneiderlin gives it away and appears to foul Long but nothing given. Long is furious.
    • 9' Referee Halsey has a word with his assistant and gives Jones a yellow card. Correct decision.
    • 8' Lallana fouled by Jones who caught him with a high boot.
    • 7' Headed away by McAuley and Southampton win a throw.
    • 6' Decent ball in by Fox but a good claim by Foster. Too much pace on the ball for Lallana and West Brom have a goal kick. It’s been an okay start for the visitors.
    • 5' Odemwingie wins a first corner for Albion. Clyne clears under pressure from Mulumbu.
    • 4' West Brom setting up 4-2-3-3 here, Southampton 4-4-2. Jones links with Odemwingie. Jones wins a throw.
    • 3' Lallana does well at the byline to turn and whip in a cross but not the best effort by Davis who sends it high into the stands.
    • 2' Saints on the back foot straight away but Schneiderlin doing very well to cover across.
    • 1' Referee Mark Halsey blows the whistle to get us underway here at The Hawthorns, Southampton in their all red away strip. It could be a long night for The Saints, who have only one win this season and West Brom have been formidable at home.
    • 20.00 A minute's silence will be observed for those who perished in the field of duty. West Brom wearing poppies on their sleeves.
    • 19.55 Five minutes to kick off. Match odds: West Brom 7/10, draw 11/4, Southampton 4/1.
    • 19.50 Southampton’s total of 26 goals conceded in their first nine matches is the worst ever defensive performance at this stage of a Premier League season and equates to 110 goals conceded over the season, 10 more than the divisional record (Swindon 1993-94). They are the only team to have trailed in all of their Premier League games this season.
    • 19.45 A win tonight will send West Brom fifth. Shane Long has scored the opening goal in three games this season, only Sunderland’s Steven Fletcher (4) has done so more often.
    • 19.40 The Baggies boast an impressive home record this season and are ninth in the table. Southampton are rock bottom with only one win and one draw from their nine matches. Check the full Premier League table here
    • 19.35 The Baggies have lost their last two Premier League games to goals scored in the 90th minute, only the fourth time this has happened within eight days in Premier League history.
    • 19.30 West Brom: Foster, Jones, McAuley, Olsson, Ridgewell, Mulumbu, Yacob, Odemwingie, Gera, Dorrans, Long. Subs: Myhill, Popov, Rosenberg, Brunt, Lukaku, Tamas, Fortune /// Southampton: Gazzaniga, Clyne, Fonte, Yoshida, Fox, Schneiderlin, S Davis, Lallana, Ramirez, Lambert, Rodriguez. Subs: K Davis, Hooiveld, Ward-Prowse, Guly, Shaw, Mayuka, Puncheon
    • 19.25 West Brom have won none of the last seven league meetings with Southampton, though five of those have ended as draws.
    • 19.20 Nigel Adkins: "They have a way of playing which suits them, they have a good manager there and some good football players. There is a great vision here at Southampton Football Club and what we have got to do is concentrate on what we do - a lot of other clubs can be highlighted but we need to focus on ourselves. A big plus for us is that Gaston Ramirez, our record signing, is back training well this week and we would like to think that he will be included on Monday evening.”
    • 19.15 Steve Clarke on Romelu Lukaku: "I know Romelu is in a good place and he's happy. I know he's in a much better place now than he was when he came here at the start of the season because he's had minutes in the Premier League. He's played matches, he's been a handful and he's shown everybody that he's a big talent and one for the future, so I know he's happy. He has done well, he's got his goals.”
    • 19.10 Southampton could welcome back record signing Gaston Ramirez. Defender Frazer Richardson (groin) and midfielder Jack Cork (knee) remain sidelined, but Tadanari Lee featured in the 3-0 Capital One Cup defeat to Leeds following his elbow injury and could make his league return.
    • 19.05 West Brom captain Chris Brunt and defender Billy Jones have recovered from hamstring and knee injuries respectively. Head coach Steve Clarke is optimistic Shane Long will have recovered from a hamstring injury, while midfielder Claudio Yacob could also return from a similar problem.
