West Ham keep Southampton at bay

Former Finland goalkeeper Jussi Jääskeläinen put on a virtuoso display as West Ham United FC held Premier League rivals Southampton FC to a goalless draw at St Mary's.

Southampton FC and West Ham United FC had to settle for a share of the spoils as Sunday's only Premier League fixture ended goalless.

Without a win since a 1-0 opening-day defeat of West Bromwich Albion FC, Mauricio Pochettino's charges looked certain to lift the tension inside St Mary's when Jay Rodriguez's centre ricocheted into the path of Pablo Osvaldo. However, the Italy striker – a club-record €17m purchase from AS Roma – could only fire straight at visiting goalkeeper Jussi Jääskeläinen, who diverted the ball over.

The home side continued to force the issue after the break but found Jääskeläinen in formidable form. The Finnish custodian produced two smart saves to deny Morgan Schneiderlin and Victor Wanyama, and was at full stretch to tip Rickie Lambert's curling effort wide of a post. On the back foot for long periods, West Ham could have taken all three points had James Collins not blasted over from Mark Noble's pinpoint cutback.
