West Ham vs Southampton LIVE Premier League, West Ham defeated Southampton to earn crucial three points in their fight for survival, relieving David Moyes of some of the pressure. At the London Stadium, Nayef Aguerd’s first-half header ended a tense but lacklustre match. After the victory, West Ham is now one point above the bottom three and in 14th place in the Premier League.
After a tense beginning, West Ham took the lead with their first shot on goal on minute 25 when Aguerd met a Thilo Kehrer free-kick and headed in a vital goal. Despite a prolonged VAR offside assessment, the goal remained in what seemed like a pivotal moment for the season.
Lukasz Fabianski, who is now back, made a fantastic stop to prevent Romain Perraud from responding right away. In the second half, Said Benrahma nearly scored on a free kick, and late in the game, Southampton substitute Paul Onuachu hit the crossbar with a header, but West Ham managed to hold on for an important victory.
