James Ward-Prowse scored one goal and assisted another as Southampton earned a much-needed victory over West Ham at London Stadium. Among other Premier League football results, Southampton won 3-2 over West Ham United in a pulsating football match on Sunday.
The victory was Southampton’s first in the league since November 5 and moved them up to 14th in the standings. Now, with 20 points from 18 games, they are only eight points behind sixth-placed West Ham on the EPL table.
Meanwhile, defeat for West Ham just continued their patchy run of form (the football news). Despite a fine start to their season, they have just one win in their last seven league games.
Premier League Football Results – Southampton Won 3-2 over West Ham
A lethargic opening from the home side allowed Southampton to take the lead after eight minutes. Following Kyle Walker-Peters’ driving run, Mohamed Elyounoussi lashed home with his left foot from the edge of the box.
West Ham created scant chances by going forward and Southampton keeper Fraser Forster remained largely untroubled during the first half.
As a results, after the break, West Ham manager David Moyes turned to his bench to offer up some inspiration. And indeed, substitute Michail Antonio made an instant impact when he headed home from close range in the 49th minute.
Also, Ward-Prowse restored the away side’s advantage from the spot just after the hour-mark.
Centre-back Craig Dawson seemingly clipped Armando Broja inside the area. This led to a penalty award based on a VAR check, which was a decision that incensed West Ham players.
A revitalised West Ham hit back three minutes later, though, through Said Benrahma after Jarrod Bowen played him in.
However, Jan Bednarek grabbed the winner in the 70th minute when he deftly turned in a curling freekick from Ward-Prowse.
