Well that is all we have time for on this Premier League live text. I hope you have enjoyed this week's coverage of the top flight, where we have had goals galore. We'll be back with European football in mid-week, but until then goodbye.


Full time: West Ham United 0-3 Southampton

Perhaps as one-sided a Premier League game as you might see all season. West Ham lose for the fourth game on the trot in the top flight, as Southampton claim their fourth win in a row in all competitions. Charlie Austin, Dusan Tadic and James Ward-Prowse did the damage. The boos didn't exactly ring around the London Stadium at full-time, but mainly because several of the home fans had already made their way home. A frankly awful display from the hosts.


Goal: West Ham United 0-3 Southampton (James Ward-Prowse)

Adrian can't keep Southampton out this time as the away side net a deserved third. Redmond and Davis combine and though Adrian half-blocks the pulls back, Ward-Prowse passes into an empty net. West Ham dreadful and well beaten here.


Charlie Austin named man-of-the-match today. A goal and an assist for the ex-Poole Town man. Hard to argue with that.


Cedric off and Cuco Martina on for Southampton, as Claude Puel looks to run down the clock and confirm his first away Premier League win. Very impressive display this has been as well.


Adrian to the rescue again, this time denying James Ward-Prowse. Now it's Hojbjerg who is kept out by the Spaniard. This could have been embarrassing for West Ham.


Southampton still pressing, as well they might with eight minutes left, but Hojbjerg's strike from range is off target. Timing running out for West Ham if they want anything from this game.


Off the line! Southampton survive as Zaza pokes goalwards and Van Dijk smashes clear. West Ham getting closer.


Adrian makes another good save to give West Ham a glimmer of hope, saving from Redmond. Southampton should be out of sight but hope remains in the form of their 'keeper.


The crowd have come alive since that penalty appeal and they almost half the deficit when Payet steers goalwards but it goes wide. Change for Southampton meanwhile, as Shane Long replaces goalscorer Austin.


Another penalty shout for West Ham, and this is perhaps the most credible - though that isn't saying much. Fegouli's shot clearly strikes the arm of Davis, but whether it was in an unnatural position or if Jon Moss could even see it is up for debate.


Steven Davis is the latest to scamper through and only a late block denies him putting Saints three up. Less than 20 minutes gone and a West Ham comeback looks less likely than a burst of pace from Gary Cahill.


Southampton double their lead and West Ham only have themselves to blame. Kouyate runs into trouble deep in his own half, and some quick passing between Davis, Redmond and Austin springs Tadic free, who allows Adrian to go to ground before slaloming through and passing into an empty net. Long way home for the beleaguered hosts now.


Goal: West Ham 0-2 Southampton (Dusan Tadic)


West Ham fans are growing increasingly frustrated by this listless display by the home side, and their mood won't have improved after Jon Moss waves away a latest penalty appeal. Zaza goes down under a half-challenge from Romeu, who is on a yellow card. Moss doesn't even move amid the appeals, and again he has it spot on as replays show the Italian exaggerated the contact.


Southampton celebrate as Charlie Austin puts them ahead before half-time.

Southampton will feel they should be two up. Cedric is played in beautifully by Tadic, and the Serbian is the one who forces Adrian into a full length save, before Redmond's shot is deflected to safety.


West Ham threaten and as Bertrand clears at the back-post, a stray arm strikes Kouyate and the midfielder needs treatment.


Second half underway at the London Stadium. Feghouli on for Lanzini for West Ham.


Half time: West Ham United 0-1 Southampton

Neither side have been particularly impressive in that opening 45 minutes, but the most potent striker on the field has the visitors ahead. The first and only shot on target in that half came from Charlie Austin, and he converted with aplomb to give Southampton the lead. West Ham's home blues continue, and they have lacked any ideas going forward. Much to do for Slaven Bilic.


Saints rue the chance to make it 2-0 before the break as Cedric gets the wrong side of Arbeloa but instead of flashing the ball across the penalty area where Austin is lurking, he fires at the near post and finds the side-netting. Huge waste.


Austin was a target for West Ham in the summer and also in 2015, until co-owner David Gold criticised his long-term fitness. Not a bad repost for Austin, who now has five goals in the last 10 days. Sam Allardyce will be taking note.

The best move of the match not surprisingly ends with the opening goal. Ryan Bertrand is set clear down the left and despite having only Austin to pick out he finds the ex-Swindon forward who sweeps the ball low beyond Adrian from 12 yards. The first effort on target produces the opening goal.


More or less sums things up....
