West Brom cruised to a win against a Southampton side that continues to struggle. They will surely struggle to stay in the Premier League this season unless they can fix their defense. Rickie Lambert very nearly got a goal for the Saints, but otherwise it was a pretty one sided affair.
I did predict a West Brom win, but I really thought that Southampton would put up more of a fight than this. Odemwingie’s first goal may have taken a deflection to go in and there may be questions of there be a handball before the goal, but there were no questions of his second.
The Baggies 5th win puts them up to 5th in the table just behind Everton and just above Tottenham, both on goal difference. Southampton, meanwhile, is firmly rooted at the bottom of the table having taken only 4 points in 10 matches with a win and a draw. Their goal difference is a league worst -14.
