  2. FULL-TIME: Southampton secure their first Premier League win of the season at the fifth time of asking thanks to a spellbinding second half performance. Villa had led through Darren Bent's close-range finish. But the Saints hit back through Rickie Lambert's excellent effort from the edge of the box before Nathaniel Clyne bagged his first goal for the club with a cool finish. It was soon three as Jason Puncheon's strike deflected off Ciaran Clark for an own goal and Lambert sealed a comprehensive win from the penalty spot deep in stoppage time.

  3. Lambert scores his second of the afternoon as he lashes his right-foot shot into the bottom corner from 12-yards. No chance for Guzan!


  5. 90+4

    PENALTY GIVEN: Ricky Lambert plays Emmanuel Mayuka though and he is brought down by Brad Guzan.

  6. 90+3

    Second later, Rickie Lambert has a go from the halfway line, but the ball flies well over. Time is up for Villa!

  7. 90+2

    Gaston Ramirez decides to have a pop at goal from an acute angle and he very nearly hits the corner flag.

  8. 90+1

    Adam Lallana wins a free-kick after showboating on the ball which frustrates young Joe Bennett.

  9. 90

    There will be four minutes of added time!

  10. 89

    Villa win a corner and it comes to nothing as Karim El Ahmadi runs the ball out with a poor touch for a goalkick.

  11. 88

    Rickie Lambert looks up and finds Mayuka, who is just caught in an offside position, although his effort is parried wide in any case.

  12. 87

    Emmanuel Mayuka is through on goal, but the ball runs through to Brad Guzan.

  13. 86

    Cheers of 'Ole' ring around St Mary's as they pass the ball with real confidence, but then big Ron Vlaar steps in to put an end to the singing.

  14. 85

    The home side are controlling the middle of the park and Villa are struggling to win the ball back at the moment.

  15. 84

    At the other end Ashley Westwood looks to curl the ball into the top corner, but fails to get any meat on his effort.

  16. 83

    CHANCE! And Ramirez is involved again with a sublime through ball for Adam Lallana, but he panics in front of goal and Guzan collects.

  17. 82

    Gaston Ramirez has looked different quality this haf and has behind much of the fine attacking play for the hosts.

  18. 81

    Darren Bent's right-foot curler is just too high and misses the target.

  19. 80

    Christian Benteke wins a free-kick on the edge of the Saints box and in a central position. A real opportunity for Villa this!

  20. 78

    SUBSTITUTION: Saints change and teenage star James Ward-Prowse replaces Steven Davis.
