Southampton have beaten Hull City to continue their strong start to the Premier League season.
Neither side could create a clear opening in the first 10 minutes, although Southampton looked the more likely to score as Jose Fonte had the ball nicked off him when he looked to shoot from a corner.
Indeed it was the home side who took the lead soon after. After Hull had failed to clear a cross, Morgan Schneiderlin headed in for his first goal of the season.
The Saints continued to look the more threatening, with Hull just able to clear a succession of crosses.
That pressure paid off with the home side's second of the game when Rickie Lambert powered home a penalty.

Hull's poor afternoon continued, but Southampton's third goal was all down to the individual skill of Adam Lallana, who beat three defenders before curling the ball in.
Lallana almost restored the home side's three goal lead but, after exchanging passes with Lambert, Steve Harper pushed his shot wide.
However, Steven Davis made it four with a composed finish.
