Hammers Ease Past Southampton To Move Out of The Relegation Zone

After the excellent performance at Anfield against runaway league leaders Liverpool, the Hammers followed that up with a convincing win against The Saints at the London Stadium.

New signing Bowen scores in his home debut, Haller and Antonio both get on the score sheet and the result offers some real hope of safety for the struggling Hammers.

Fans held a protest against the owners before the match, walking from Plaistow to Pudding Lane, mostly peaceful by around 4,500 people in all to hear speeches about how the current owners have sold the heart and soul of the club leaving in a desperate situation, especially on the pitch.

Credit to Ngakia who again showed his quality with some confident forward runs and crosses. Rice was back in the zone with a solid performance, Haller took his goal really well, beating the keeper with a header and managing to get the ball over the line. Fornals put in yet another quality shift with an assured performance and assists.

A special mention to Rice as well, who always stops outside the ground to speak to fans and sign shirts and programmes. A young fan called Yusuke waited patiently for Rice to come out and sign his shirt and talk to him about the match. Its wonderful to see this by the players who realise how important it is to keep in touch with the fans.
