Southampton beat West Brom 2-0.

Goals from Moussa Djenepo and Oriol Romeu gave the Saints a much-deserved win – to make it two successive wins and clean sheets for the side.

It was a good afternoon for the Saints as they bounced back from three defeats since the start of the season.

Moussa Djenepo got them on their way against a West Brom side who posed them few problems with an eye-catching goal of his own before Romeu’s flying volley wrapped up all three points at St Mary’s. Ings had previously scored all three of Southampton’s league goals.

Southampton began like a side buoyed by their first win of the season last time out at Burnley, with intent and purpose in their sharp passing.

Oriol Romeu met Stuart Armstrong’s cross with a stunning one touch volley to make it 2-0

Adams and Ings kept the attack going and the latter’s cross deflected to Djenepo who took a touch, fooled two defenders with a Cruyff turn, and found Johnstone’s bottom corner.

It was going to take something pretty good to beat Johnstone. Djenepo’s first goal since last September was just that.

The Saints sealed the points with a wonderful volley from Romeu.

And from what was only half an opportunity Romeu put the game to bed. He had plenty to do when Stuart Armstrong lifted a hopeful ball into a dangerous area.

But Romeu charged into a gap he spotted in the area, forcing Adams out the way, before meeting the ball perfectly mid-air and directing a volley past a helpless Johnstone with the outside of his right foot.
