Antonio sent off as Hammers held at Southampton

Southampton held high-flying West Ham to a goalless draw at St Mary’s as the Saints’ search for a first Premier League win of the season continued.

In a tight game with few chances, it was new Southampton loanee Armando Broja who twice came close to breaking the deadlock.
However, with nine minutes to go, his low shot hit the foot of the post after a mesmeric dribble, before the forward saw his injury-time header cleared off the line by Declan Rice

And the visitors’ day ended on a sour note in stoppage time when Michail Antonio – the joint top scorer in the Premier League – was sent off for a second bookable offence.

As a result, despite extending their unbeaten run to seven games – the first time they have achieved such a feat in six seasons – the Hammers slip to fifth in the table, while the Saints lie in 14th place.
