West Ham picked up all three points on the south coast last night.

The Hammers beat Southampton 1-0 thanks to Sebastien Haller’s first-half strike. It was West Ham’s second win since September and it eased the relegation concerns.

It was also a much-needed clean sheet and a much-needed win for Manuel Pellegrini. West Ham are now four points clear of Southampton, who occupy the final relegation spot.
