What a frantic ending... 😅 Saints go agonisingly close to claiming all three points, as substitute Armando Broja hits the post and has a header cleared off the line, before West Ham's Michail Antonio is shown a late red card. In the end, both side settle for a share of the spoils.

OFF THE POST! 😱

Electric from Broja ✨

The striker storms past Ogbonna on the right wing and looks to find Elyounoussi in the middle, but Coufal does enough to prevent the winger getting on the end of it. Great play from Armando 👏
