Oriol Romeu scored his first goal in 43 Premier League matches in spectacular style as Southampton beat West Bromwich Albion 2-0 at St Mary’s Stadium.

The visitors were indebted to goalkeeper Sam Johnstone during the first half as he produced fine saves from Ryan Bertrand, Che Adams and Danny Ings, the latter with a header from James Ward-Prowse’s cross.

But Johnstone was eventually beaten by Moussa Djenepo, who turned smartly and found the bottom corner with a low shot on 41 minutes.

Six minutes after the restart Grady Diangana had West Brom’s best opening but he struck the woodwork following a free-kick.

Saints doubled their lead after 69 minutes with Romeu's superb volley from Stuart Armstrong’s cross.

Southampton move up to 10th with a second successive victory, while the Baggies stay 17th.
