Southampton won a Premier League match for the first time since mid-September on Saturday as they defeated Watford 2-1.

Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men were able to shift the monkey from their backs at St Mary’s Stadium as goals from Danny Ings, and James Ward-Prowse secured a first victory on home soil since April for Saints.

Ismaila Sarr handed Watford a lead in the first half as he took advantage of a mistake from Jack Stephens.

However, Southampton fought back, and with the inspiration of second-half substitute Sofiane Boufal, found themselves growing into the game.

Saints’ persistence paid off as Moussa Djenepo’s low ball was smashed home by Ings, who netted his seventh Premier League goal of the season.

Ward-Prowse then completed the turnaround as he scored a free-kick in expert fashion, making it two goals in as many games for the midfielder.

Southampton remain in the bottom three but will be relieved to have finally claimed three important points. Here are our Power Rankings after the 14 Premier League fixtures that have been played so far.
