It's destination Europe for West Ham, who take the lead at London Stadium upon the half hour mark. The goal came very much against the run of play, though as Saints continue to press for a goal in the capital.
Pablo Fornals (30’) | 1 – 0
Diallo brings down Bowen as West Ham are awarded a free-kick. It's a long way out but Bowen's ball in finds the head of Craig Dawson, his looping header comes down a little too late and bounces off the top of the net.

Corner for West Ham
Bowen sends in a lovely corner to a packed penalty area. Alex McCarthy gets lost in a sea of players and it's Salisu who clears for Saints to divert the threat.

Captain fantastic ✨
Southampton captain James Ward-Prowse hasn’t missed a single minute of Premier League football in either of the last two seasons – if he plays 90 minutes in this game, he will be the first midfielder to play every minute in consecutive seasons, and only the second midfielder to do so in more than one season, along with Gary McAllister (1993-94 with Leeds United, 1996-97 with Coventry City).14.00
STAT ATTACK 🔢
Against no side has Southampton’s Theo Walcott scored more Premier League goals than he has against West Ham (6), while he’s only had more goal involvements against Newcastle (11) than he has against the Hammers (10 – 6 goals, 4 assists).13.30
The last time Saints claimed victory over West Ham away from home was back in September 2016. Charlie Austin, Dusan Tadic and James Ward-Prowse were all on the scoresheet for Saints who left 3-0 victors. Can they finish their season on a high with victory this afternoon?13.15
in their own stadium we didn't compete so good in the last years, so we have to go there and do it better."ralph hasenhüttlSouthampton manager
Matchday in the capital 😇
Happy Sunday Saints fans and welcome to London Stadium, where Southampton face West Ham in the final game of their 2020/21 Premier League campaign. It's been a season of highs and lows for Saints, but victory in the capital could see them finish as high as 12th in the table. For West Ham, victory at home could see them secure a spot in the Europa League group stages,11.30
