SOUTHAMPTON, England (AP) — Southampton slipped to fourth in the Premier League on Wednesday after being held to a 0-0 draw by 10-man West Ham.
West Ham ground out the draw — and its first clean sheet in 18 league games — after losing goalkeeper Adrian to a straight red card in the 61st minute at St Mary's.
The Spanish goalkeeper attempted to turn away from Sadio Mane, only to be caught out and handle the ball outside the box.
It led to a deluge of Saints attacks but West Ham held firm, with impressive defending, wayward finishing and some fine saves from substitute Jussi Jaaskelainen delighting the visiting fans.
Grazian Pelle blazed over for Southampton after cutting inside, Nathaniel Clyne was denied by a block and Maya Yoshida headed over from close range.
