The Bonus Points
On only his second Premier League start of the season, the striker opened the scoring and assisted for Dusan Tadic (£7.2m) to net the second.
Bertrand supplied the assist for Austin's opener and also completed 94% of his 38 attempted passes.
Soares matched Bertrand for clearances, blocks and interceptions (CBI), with five apiece, and also produced three successful tackles, six recoveries and two key passes.
The ICT Index
Tadic topped the ICT Index with a score of 15.4. The midfielder scored his first goal of the season and had three shots, all from inside the box and on target, in addition to three key passes.
Nathan Redmond (£6.0m) claimed second position with 9.4 in the ICT Index.
He registered four attempts, all from inside the Hammers' box, and created two scoring chances.
Austin's goal and assist helped the forward to third with a score of 8.9.
The Scout Notes
Austin's display could clinch a regular starting role ahead of Shane Long (£6.2m) up front.
The striker signed from Queens Park Rangers last year has five goals in his last four matches across all competitions.
Soares's all-round contribution has earned five bonus points over Southampton’s back-to-back shutouts and, as the cheapest regular starter in Claude Puel’s defence, is one to monitor when the schedule eases in Gameweek 14.
Yet their defensive problems remain, conceding 14 times in their last four Premier League matches.
Dimitri Payet (£9.4m) has produced the most shots (15) without scoring.
