  • It is all over here at St Mary's. An eighth successive win for Saints and fifth loss in six on the road for Hull City. It will be a long drive home for Steve Bruce and his men but there is no doubt, Southampton thoroughly deserve the plaudits and points at the end of the day. This is now Southampton's best start to a top-flight season in history.

  • There is little doubt now, Southampton have wrapped this up and it is just a case of playing the clock out as the stands start to empty.

  • STEVEN DAVIS! Another excellent break and cross from Clyne on the right before a fantastic touch from Davis, sets himself up and fires to the right of Harper. Clyne certainly deserves credit, again.

  • Hull have time on the ball but cannot break through the Saints midfield.

  • Into the final five minutes now and there is little time for the Tigers to get back into the game.

  • Quiet few minutes as Southampton settle the game down again.

  • Saints flood forward again with Shaw but his desire takes him too far and the ball runs out of play.

  • Standing ovation for Adam Lallana as he is taken off to be replaced by Jack Cork. A wide grin on Hodgson's face in the stands.

  • Quinn sends the cross into the box but Koren is unable to wrestle Fonte off the ball.

  • Free-kick to Southampton after Figueroa goes in late on Rodriquez

  • Third and final change for Hull sees George Boyd replaced by Stephen Quinn, who played for the reserves midweek in a bid to earn more first-team football.

  • Hull definitely appear more organised in the second half but Southampton remain equal to the attacking threat.

  • Osvaldo is immediately in on the action as Ward-Prowse whips an inch-perfect ball to the Italian at the back post and Harper manages to save the well-timed header.

  • Southampton come close again as Lallana creates his own space in the box before crossing to Rodriquez at the back post but the header is just wide.

  • Rickie Lambert leaves to a standing ovation as Pochettino introduces Dani Osvaldo to further prove Southampton's strength in depth.

  • Sagbo goes down very easily on the edge of the box, protests but is probably lucky to avoid a booking for simulation.

  • Saints straight on the counter from a Hull corner as Schneiderlin surges towards the box before sliding the ball into the closing defenders.

  • A second change from Bruce as striker Danny Graham, who has not scored in 26 games, replaces David Meyler.

  • Hull on the move this time with Figueroa, who slides through to Boyd before the cross is cleared by Davis.

  • Southampton forward, again led by Lallana, but fail to make the most of the territory.
