Dominated his area despite carrying a slight injury and saved comfortably from Rickie Lambert twice, but otherwise had quiet game. Saved well from Adam Lallana very late on.
Booked for a high tackle on Adam Lallana early on, and let the winger get in behind him for a decent chance later in the half. Was otherwise perfectly competent.
Went close with his head after connecting with Peter Odemwingie's shot. Solid display at the back, though wasn't truly tested. Lucky to not concede a penalty with a clumsy tackle on Adam Lallana in the second half.
A poor defensive header led to Rickie Lambert hitting the bar after the break, but made a number of important blocks.
Dealt with Gaston Ramirez well, though the winger was off form. Sometimes pinned back by Nathaniel Clyne and couldn't get forward as much as he might have.
Dominated play in both halves of the field. Brilliant tackle to stop Rodriguez from pulling the trigger on the edge of the box. Generally protected his defense well while also starting a number of moves going forward.
Put a shift in in front of his defense, making a number of fine tackles and reading Saints' play well. A solid display.
Was allowed plenty of space on the wing, which he could have done more with. Replaced by Chris Brunt with 25 minutes remaining.
Nearly opened the scoring with a reaction flick of the boot after a shot from Peter Odemwingie, but saw the ball fly over from just yards out. Otherwise hassled Southampton throughout.
Worked superbly hard from kickoff. Wasted a fantastic opening with 20 minutes gone but made himself a great second chance just before halftime - though was denied by a brilliant save. Fantastic cross for Peter Odemwingie's second. Earned a standing ovation from the home fans.
Went close with a low shot from range before nabbing a goal when his left-foot effort went in off Maya Yoshida, though it looked as if he handled in the run up to it. Made it two with a brilliant run and header, getting on the end of Shane Long's pin-point cross. Brought off to rapturous applause late on.
Nearly got caught out direct from a corner but recovered well. Had no chance for Peter Odemwingie's opener after the deflection off Maya Yoshida. Saved superbly from Shane Long just before the break but, again, could do little about the home side's second goal.
Left some wide open spaces at the back in the first half, improved in the second but his delivery wasn't as good as normal. Let Peter Odemwingie get away from him for his second goal. Replaced late on.
Got forward to good effect, but left far too much space for Shane Long and Graham Dorrans, with some of his defending non-existent.
Gave away some clumsy fouls and let Shane Long got the better of him to cross for the second goal, but overall wasn't a terrible display. Tackled well on Romelu Lukaku later on.
Unfortunate to help Peter Odemwingie's shot past his own keeper, but part of a slightly better defense that was left open on the counterattack. Went close with a decent late header.
Wasted a decent early chance by blasting over. Allowed the Baggies to find a lot of space in the middle of the park with poor tracking.
The record signing failed to live to up his price tag. He was wasteful with the ball more often than not, gifting Shane Long a good chance on one occasion. Certainly lacked sharpness and was replaced with 15 minutes left.
Sometimes caught in possession in front of his back four, criminally failed to put Peter Odemwingie under any pressure for the opener and was then half-hearted with his attempted block. A lackluster showing.
Showed lovely touches as normal and drew numerous fouls. Was Saints' brightest spark. Could have had a penalty late on and even a goal if it wasn't for a fine save from Ben Foster in injury time.
Got himself involved in and around the area more than in other games, but was wasteful at times. Poor marking from one set-piece nearly allowed Liam Ridgewell in. Brought off with 15 minutes remaining.
Could have done better with a header in the first half, in which he failed to get on the ball enough. Rattled the bar just after the break.
Came on for Graham Dorrans mid-way through the second half to provide fresh legs. Went close with a decent volley after Romelu Lukaku's cross.
Thrown into the fray for the last 20 minutes. Bullied Jose Fonte before teeing up Chris Brunt for a good chance.
Came on late on for Peter Odemwingie.
