West Ham gave their fans something to shout about today, as the Hammers beat Southampton 3-0 at the London Stadium in what was the East End outfits last home game of the season.
A double from previously out of form striker Marko Arnautovic and a strike from full back Ryan Fredericks was enough to seal all three points for Manuel Pellegrini’s side and sees them consolidate 11th place in the Premier League table.
Speaking after the game Chilean coach Pellegrini admitted he was happy his side were able to win their last home game in front of their fans.
“We played a good game and won the last game at home for our fans. From the first minute we tried to win,’’ Pellegrini told Sky Sports.
“The important thing is when you replace players they players you bring in play well. I’m happy with my squad. The team is in good shape, it’s a transition season, we did well and had so many injured players. Hopefully we can improve for next season.”
Austrian front man Arnautovic also revealed how happy he was with his sides all-round performance.
“The manager kept saying we must win this last game at home, the fans wanted to see that, we did a great game, we’re happy and I think the fans are also,’’ the striker also told Sky Sports.
“We played very well, defensively, in midfield, attacking – we created a lot of chances. It’s a nice finish but it’s still not the end, there’s one game to go.”
