Player Ratings: Southampton 1-1 West Ham

There was little inspiration or class from either side in the tight first period at St Mary's, with second-half goals from Gaston Ramirez and Andy Carroll seeing the points shared

By John Stammers at St Mary's Stadium

    Artur Boruc

    Looked more assured with the ball at his feet and his kicking was better - though there were still some nervy moments. Saved well from Nolan. Probably should have done better for the equaliser.

  • Nathaniel Clyne

    Nathaniel Clyne Top of the Match

    Solid at the back and really added to Saints' attack with a number of dangerous runs. Quieter in the second half.

  • Maya Yoshida

    Maya Yoshida

    Made a few good blocks in the first half but in truth had little to deal with. Fortunate to see Carroll miss after his mistake gifted him a chance.

  • Jos Hooiveld

    Jos Hooiveld

    Struggled against Carroll for most of the game. Made an important block to deny Nolan. His rash tackle led to the free kick for Carroll's equaliser. Battled hard to keep hold of a point late on.

  • Daniel Fox

    2.50

    Daniel Fox

    Gave away a few cheap fouls and allowed Demel and Vaz Te to set-up a good chance for Nolan.

  • Morgan Schneiderlin

    2.50

    Morgan Schneiderlin

    Booked for a blatant and unnecessary dive early in the game. Offered a good link between defence and attack.

  • Steven Davis

    2.00

    Steven Davis

    Buzzed around the West Ham box and helped keep hold of the ball, but failed to really offer a threat. Broke from the wall and helped the ball into the net for the equaliser.

  • G. Ramírez
    6
    0
    2.50

    G. Ramírez

    Looked calm on the ball and broke at pace when he wanted - but really lacked a final product. Wasn't afraid to take on the early shot and took his goal emphatically. Wasted too many set pieces with poor deliveries and was replaced late on.

  • Jack Cork
    7
    0
    3.00

    Jack Cork

    His ball retention was as good as ever, breaking up several attacks. Helped push Saints on too and played a fine ball into Lambert just before half-time. Made a fine goalline clearance just after Saints' goal.

  • Adam Lallana
    3
    2
    2.50

    Adam Lallana

    Threatened in behind early on and carried on making menacing runs. He tackled back well too. It was his first start for a while and so he understandably tired and was replaced after the break.

  • Rickie Lambert
    5
    0
    2.50

    Rickie Lambert

    Wasn't able to dominate Tomkins and Collins like he often does to centre-backs. Almost opened the scores but Jaaskelainen got down to block his effort, and then headed just wide before the break.

Substitutions

  • Jason Puncheon

    Jason Puncheon

    Brought on with around 10 minutes remaining.

  • Jay Rodriguez

    2.50

    Jay Rodriguez

    Came on in the second half and provided some extra spark - forcing Jaaskelainen into a smart low save late on.

  • Jussi Jaaskelainen

    2.50

    Jussi Jaaskelainen

    Got down quickly to deny Lambert but otherwise had a quiet game. No chance for Ramirez's opener.

  • James Tomkins
    0
    1
    2.50

    James Tomkins

    Fine early tackle to deny Lallana, and then made another excellent block later in the first half. Wasted the ball far too many times by going long unsuccessfully. Limped off in the second half.

  • Joey O'Brien
    1

    2.00

    Joey O'Brien

    Put himself about but didn't offer a great deal going forward and was caught out by Clyne a number of times.

  • James Collins
    0
    1
    2.50

    James Collins

    Like his centre-back partner, Collins often made poor use of the ball but was solid in the air and limited Saints' chances.

  • Guy Demel
    0
    1
    3.00

    Guy Demel

    Was a threat going forward and helped set-up one decent chance for Nolan. Solid after the break too.

  • Kevin Nolan
    0
    1
    2.50

    Kevin Nolan

    Tested Boruc with a low shot early on and was typically hard to deal with in the box. Battled all game long, though not always to great effect.

  • Matthew Jarvis
    0
    1
    2.00

    Matthew Jarvis Flop of the Match

    Had no luck against the solid Clyne and went missing for large periods of the game. Replaced early on the second half.

  • Mohamed Diame

    2.50

    Mohamed Diame

    Carried the ball forward well at times but unable to really take hold of the game in the middle against Schneiderlin and Cork. Won the free kick that led to the equaliser.

  • Gary O'Neil

    2.50

    Gary O'Neil

    Kept the Hammers ticking when they had small spells of possession, but gave away too many cheap fouls.

  • Andy Carroll
    10
    1
    3.00

    Andy Carroll

    Won most things in the air but then mis-placed the passes when he got the ball at his feet. Picked up a needless booking for talking back to the referee. Should have scored early in the second period but then did get the equaliser, albeit with a bit of luck, as he showed more fight after the break.

  • Ricardo Vaz Te
    0

    2.50

    Ricardo Vaz Te

    Went close with a powerful strike early in the clash and provided Nolan with a good chance. Otherwise not really involved.

Substitutions

  • Emanuel Pogatetz

    Emanuel Pogatetz

    Replaced Tomkins in the second half but almost instantly gave away a poor foul to earn a booking.

  • Jack Collison

    Jack Collison

    Came on for Jarvis in the second half and gave the Hammers some fresh legs in midfield.

    Matthew Taylor

    Come on late in the game.
