Southampton 4-1 Hull City – Premier League – 9th November 2013

Soccer - Barclays Premier League - Southampton v Hull City - St Mary's

Southampton continued their superb start to the season with a comfortable 4-1 win against Hull at St. Mary’s.

Morgan Schneiderlin opened the scoring early on before Rickie Lambert fired home a spot-kick after Adam Lallana had been felled int he box by Hull ‘Keeper Steve Harper. But it was England new-boy Lallana himself who would score the goal of the game, jinking his way into the Tigers’ box before coolly slotting home.

The 3-0 half-time score was a fair reflection of the game but Steve Bruce’s men did improve int he second period, with Yannick Sagbo netting before Steven Davis reinstated the home side’s three-goal margin before the end.

Can Mauricio Pochettino’s charges really challenge for a European spot this season?

    Fair play to the Saints, they’re making many neutrals actually pick a side.

    Southampton or Swansea?

    On this form, the Saints actually do look set for at least a top 6 finish.

    All very promising, but just take a look at their next fixtures:

    Arsenal away / Chelsea away / Villa home / Man City home

    Taking away Villa (who are by no means pushovers), you’ve got three games that will decide Southampton’s season.

    If they can pull through those four games with 6 points it will be respectable.

    Anything more than 6 points, we’re looking at prospective Europa League contenders at LEAST.
