WBA vs SOU As It Happened
Key moments so far
- Pereira's penalty fires West Brom in front at The Hawthorns
- Phillips adds quick-fire second to double the lead
- Robinson fires in Albion's third in the second half
- Johnstone saves late Ward-Prowse penalty
we're very disappointed. in the first half we didn't really get to grips with them - the first 15-20 minutes we barely had the ball. the second half we were a lot better, but only created half-chances, nothing clear cut. the third goal made it a real uphill task."stuart armstrongsouthampton midfielder
FULL TIME: West Brom 3-0 Southampton
It's a night to forget for Saints, who have been well beaten at The Hawthorns. Matheus Pereira fired the hosts in front from the penalty spot, before Matt Phillips slid in to score at the far post three minutes later. Callum Robinson added Albion's third in the second half, while James Ward-Prowse saw a late penalty saved to sum up a very difficult evening.
Johnstone denies Ward-Prowse
That sums up Saints' night... Johnstone dives to his right to repel the spot-kick.
Djenepo wins a penalty
Townsend upends the substitute. Ward-Prowse to take...
Six added minutes...
We're into an extended period of stoppage time following the treatment for Maitland-Niles.
Vestergaard threatens a consolation
It's a decent effort from the defender on the stretch, but his header drops on to the top of the net.
Maitland-Niles is fiit to continue
After a heavy fall, the midfielder rejoins the action.
Maitland-Niles given lengthy treatment
The stretcher is out for the Arsenal loanee. This time will be added on at the end of the 90...
Just wide from Adams...
So close to a goal back, as the substitute drives a low shot that just flashes past the far post.
Redmond goes close
It's a decent strike from distance, but Johnstone watches it over.
Robinson makes it three
Yokuslu threads a pass through for Robinson, who drills the ball past Forster.
Callum Robinson (69’) | 3 – 0
Yokuslu fires over
A rare West Brom attack since half-time results in a free-kick in shooting range, but Yokuslu's effort never looks like troubling Forster.
Johnstone denies Armstrong
Saints are bossing the possession now, but the latest attack forces only a routine save from Johnstone after Armstrong lets fly.
Furlong gets back at Redmond
Better from Saints, as Ings flicks the ball around the corner for Redmond, but the winger is stopped by some excellent defending by the sliding Furlong.
Armstrong on the attack
Played in by Ings, the Scot is halted by an important last-ditch tackle, before the resulting corner is cleared.
More intent from Saints...
No chances yet in the second half but Saints already look a different side, forcing West Brom back. Score the next goal and it's game on...
We're back under way...
The second half is up and running. Big improvement needed!
HALF TIME: West Brom 2-0 Southampton
Saints look shell-shocked here, trailing at the interval to two first-half goals. Matheus Pereira opened the scoring from the penalty spot after he was brought down by Fraser Forster, before Matt Phillips slid in at the far post to make it two. There have been other chances for the hosts, clearly buoyed by putting five past Chelsea. Saints recovered from 2-0 down last week... can they do it again?
Yokuslu fires over
A hopeful shot from distance comes to nothing.
Yellow Card for James Ward-Prowse (Southampton)
The skipper goes into the book for holding back Pereira.
Phillips makes it two
Saints are in big trouble now, as Diagne crosses low for Phillips to double Albion's advantage.
Matt Phillips (35’) | 2 – 0
West Brom lead
Straight down the middle from the Brazilian, who picks himself up to score.
Matheus Fellipe Costa Pereira (32’) | 1 – 0
Penalty to West Brom
Forster rushes out and sends Pereira tumbling. The hosts have a spot-kick.
Great strike from Armstrong
The Scot tests Johnstone from 20 yards with an excellent shot, but the keeper beats it away.
What a chance - the best of the lot for West Brom, as Pereira feeds Diagne, but his shot is high and wide when he should've scored inside the box.
Another chance for Saints!
Redmond picks out Armstrong, whose shot on the turn falls for Ings, who angles the ball back across goal but West Brom survive.
Ings goes close
Clever footwork from Redmond, who goes down in the box but no penalty is forthcoming. The loose ball falls for Ings, who gets his shot off, but it sails narrowly wide.
Forster denies Pereira
There was not much power in the header, making it a straightforward save for the keeper, but it's another chance for the Baggies.
Crucial defending from Bertrand
He gets back to dispossess Diagne just as the striker was ready to pull the trigger. Saints need to find a foothold in this game.
Furlong heads wide
The defender finds space at the near post but his glancing header flashes wide of the far post.
Forster denies Townsend
West Brom have started well here. Another good move sees Townsend pick up a good position, but his low shot is blocked by the legs of Forster.
Walker-Peters forces a save
Tremendous work from the full-back to chase down a raking pass from Vestergaard and beat his man, but he opts to go for goal from a tight angle and Johnstone is happy to parry the ball behind for a corner at his near post.
Robinson goes close
Callum Robinson gets across the near post to connect with a cross from the left, but cannot direct the chance on target.
Saints survive an early scare
That's a let-off. Forster parries Phillips's shot to Furlong, whose effort is touched in by Diagne from close range, only for the striker to be fractionally offside and the goal is ruled out.
We're up and running!
