Goal Modibo Maiga
GOAL! Maiga has his first Premier League goal to make it 4-1! It's a lovely effort, as West Ham win the scrap in midfield to get the ball to the striker. He is surrounded by three defenders but steps past Fonte before getting the ball out of his feet enough to poke a superb curling shot beyond Boruc.
Yellow Card Morgan Schneiderlin
Yellow Card Jos Hooiveld
Penalty Goal Mark Noble
GOAL! Noble has his second of the afternoon from the penalty spot and West Ham lead 3-1! It's a baffling bit of defending from Fonte, who clearly pulls Carroll down from behind after the striker had won a header from Noble's free-kick. Noble sends Boruc the wrong way and the Hammers are headed for three points.
Goal Adam Lallana
GOAL! Southampton have one back through captain Lallana! After some much better play ended with the midfielder just failing to pick out Rodriguez in the box, the Saints try again with more success. Rodriguez gets in behind Collins on the left and turns back inside before picking out Lallana across the penalty area. He spins off McCartney and fires a quick shot into the roof of the net past Jaaskelainen - a lovely finish.
Goal Kevin Nolan
GOAL! It's a quick-fire double and Southampton are reeling! Yoshida is caught in possession by Benayoun after a poor pass from Guly and the Israel international advances into the penalty area and rolls the ball across goal for Nolan to tap home at the far post.
Goal Mark Noble
GOAL! Noble gives West Ham the lead immediately after the break! After Carroll was fouled, the midfielder drifted a free-kick in towards the back post that evaded everyone and nestled in the corner. Collins' run across goal put Boruc off and the Polish goalkeeper was left rooted to the spot.
