Southampton’s Premier League season continued with a two-one defeat against West Ham at Upton Park on Monday.

The year, following the four-nil thrashing of Arsenal on Boxing Day, looked to be ending on a positive note with a lead taken into the first half when Dusan Tadic saw his effort deflected in off Carl Jenkinson (ironically enough a Gunner on loan at West Ham) for a Southampton lead.

West Ham were level just past the midway point of the second half when Michail Antonio equalised as a clearance was blasted against him and ended up looping into the back of the net with Andy Carroll winning it for the Hammers 11-minutes from time.

These were the other results.

What a cracker at Goodison Park, a seven-goal thriller saw Stoke continue a good season with a four-three win with Arsenal also securing a win to recover from the Boxing Day mauling against Southampton with a win over Bournemouth at the Emirates to put them top.

The goalless draw at Old Trafford didn’t really do much to improve the season for either Man United or Chelsea with Spurs helping their own top four (given their not too far off the top, you have to say title) chances any harm with a two-one win at Watford.
