Comments:

League position: 8th This was West Bromwich Albion's 600th home league defeat. Only Notts County (633) had lost more. Albion had now lost four of their last six Premier League games. The Baggies had now kept only three clean sheets in their last 20 Premier League games. West Bromwich Albion manager Tony Pulis said: "We controlled the last 25 minutes and I felt we did enough to get something out of the game. It is disappointing considering the chances were there, especially in the second-half."

Comments:

League position: 9th This was Southampton’s 800th away game in the top division. The Saints had now won four of their last six Premier League games. They had now kept two clean sheets in their last eight away games in the Premier League. Fraser Forster was booked in the third minute of added time in the second-half. Southampton manager Claude Puel said: "It was a perfect second-half, you can see the character of the players and the team. To get a clean sheet here is good with the quality of West Brom and the quality of their set-pieces."
