Felipe Anderson double sees West Ham come back to sink Southampton


Felipe Anderson scored in 53rd and 59th minute to help West Ham register a 2-1 win.

London, December 28: Felipe Anderson scored twice as West Ham came from a goal behind to win 2-1 away to Southampton in the Premier League on Thursday. After a lacklustre first half at St Mary’s, all three goals came in a nine-minute spell early in the second half, with Nathan Redmond firing the Saints ahead before Brazilian star Anderson’s double put West Ham on top. Victory saw the Hammers climb into ninth place in the table while Southampton, denied a third straight win under new boss Ralph Hasenhuttl, remained in 16th spot just three points above the relegation zone.
West Ham captain Aaron Cresswell, commenting about Anderson, told Sky Sports: “Felipe’s two goals were unbelievable and we got the three points. He has been fantastic. He’s our top goalscorer and he’s our in-form man.” (AFP)
