West Ham United v Southampton

Austrian the hero as Hammers move five points clear of bottom three with 3-0 win over Southampton

Marko Arnautovic scored twice to give West Ham United a huge boost in their fight against relegation as they beat Southampton 3-0.

Joao Mario put West Ham ahead with his first goal for the club from 20 yards after Cheikhou Kouyate's left-wing cross.

Arnautovic quickly doubled the lead on the rebound after Alex McCarthy had saved his initial header.

The Austrian made it 3-0 on the stroke of half-time when he swept home from Arthur Masuaku's cross.

It gave West Ham three first-half goals in a Premier League match for the first time since September 2012.

Southampton offered little in Mark Hughes's first league match in charge and stay in the bottom three. 

The Hammers ended a three-match losing run to move five points clear.
