  • It is all over at Upton Park, after a poor first half early goals for West Ham gave the game a totally different aspect after the break, leaving Southampton with much to ponder. Thanks for looking in.

  • A half-hearted Saints attack breaks down, and West Ham win it back.

  • West Ham still pressing - Jarvis forces a corner, but the Hammers are content to play it around until Nolan nods the ball wide.

  • West Ham play keep-ball to mass approval from the home fans. Matt Jarvis is called offside unluckily - that was a chance for 5-1.

  • Four minutes will be added on - four too many for Saints fans.

  • Ward-Prowse replaces Davis for Southampton.

  • Happy days for the Hammers but problems galore for Southampton, who have looked a different side at the back after the break.

  • The substitute muscles his way through three yellow shirts, then curls a lovely left-footed shot past Boruc from the edge of the box.

  • GOAL for West Ham! Maiga!

  • Half chance for Southampton, Collins clears a cross from near his own line and Mayuka's follow-up shot is cleared away.

  • West Ham can make nothing of it, Southampton break and Reid gets into a mix-up with Jaaskelainen as he retreats. The pair have a bit of an argument - it's as well they are 3-1 up.

  • Jarvis forces a corner, the Southampton keeper cannot prevent a deflection looping out of play off a defender.

  • That is Andy Carroll's last act of the game, he comes off to a standing ovation and is replaced by Maiga. The England striker had few chances but made his presence felt.

  • Schneiderlin barges into Carroll, who hits the deck heavily, and goes into the referee's book.

  • Lambert is caught offside as the ball loops over the top of McCartney into the box.

  • Noble slams his low free kick from just outside the area into the wall, no hat-trick for the midfielder just yet.

  • Hooiveld booked for catching Carroll, who has been appealing for the referee to punish the Dutchman for his close attentions for most of the afternoon.

  • Yoshida bears down on Jaaskelainen, but the West Ham keeper keeps his eye on the ball to collect with ease.

  • Southampton's heads have dropped following that penalty, West Ham looking comfortable.

  • Talk about a game of two halves! That trusted cliche has been out in force this afternoon in east London.
