Southampton unlucky in first defeat of the season

Southampton were pushing at the other end but were being too easily caught out down the flanks when the ball came back their way.

It was a vulnerability exposed by Norwich in the 68th minute, when Redmond cut inside and lashed home low from the edge of the box, out of Boruc's reach.

The goal led Pochettino to ring the changes, with substitute Jay Rodriguez causing the City backline problems before fellow replacement Steven Davis lashed over.

There was to be no comeback, though, as Norwich stuck to their task to secure victory - with Redmond again going close and Webb waving away another penalty appeal as Snodgrass went down under pressure from Jose Fonte in stoppage time.

Saints deprived of clear penalty

Southampton captain Lallana also saw a volley smash against the post and record signing Dani Osvaldo had a close-range effort saved by John Ruddy - missed opportunities the visitors were made to pay for.

Despite Robert Snodgrass being refused a stoppage-time penalty, Redmond's solo effort proved enough to secure Norwich a first league win of the season, ending the visitors' unbeaten start to the campaign.

Ward-Prowse's floated free-kick was only cleared as far as Lallana and the Southampton captain's venomous left-footed volley struck the post.

Mauricio Pochettino's side returned for the second half strongly and Ruddy had to be at his best to deny Osvaldo.

Saints lose to the Canaries

In a frenetic, end-to-end clash at a sold-out Carrow Road, the hosts' 19-year-old winger proved the difference as he capped a fine performance with the winner.

Redmond's pace often had Southampton on the back foot and saw him score the decisive goal in the second half, cutting in from the left to unleash a fierce drive from the edge of the box.

The match could have ended quite differently had it not been for the earlier contentious call from referee Howard Webb.

Bradley Johnson clearly handled an Adam Lallana strike in front of Webb, but the referee waved away those claims.

Lambert is the winning ingredient - again!

Lambert converted from the spot in the 90th minute of the Barclays Premier League opening-day clash, three days on from heading the winner for England in their 3-2 triumph over Scotland with his first touch in international football.

At the age of 31, the former Bristol Rovers, Rochdale, Stockport and Macclesfield player is the man of the moment, and Pochettino could not be more delighted for him.

Southampton deserved their three points having been the better side for much of the contest.

They had the ball in the net in the first half through Adam Lallana's close-range finish from a Lambert header, but it was ruled out for offside.

Southampton deserved their three points having been the better side for much of the contest.

They had the ball in the net in the first half through Adam Lallana's close-range finish from a Lambert header, but it was ruled out for offside.

Regarding Lambert, scorer of 15 goals for Saints last term in what was his debut Premier League season, the Argentinian said: "He is having a dream week.

Southampton defeated by West Brom

Having made a rapid ascent up the leagues, the Yorkshireman was handed his maiden top-flight match at St Mary's - one many had expected to be a quiet affair.

How wrong they were, with Marc Antoine-Fortune opening the scoring in just the sixth minute after Saints failed to clear their lines

Fortune helped the Baggies double their lead after the break, putting through the ever-impressive Romelu Lukaku to slot home past Artur Boruc.

Just three minutes later Fortune was sent off, having raised his hands to Gaston Ramirez after the Uruguayan had thrown an arm at Shane Long.

The Saints substitute was sent off for the incident and was joined in the dressing room seven minutes from time by team-mate Danny Fox, who was sent off for a nasty two-footed challenge on Steven Reid.

Things went from bad to worse for the visitors seven minutes from time when Fox, playing in place of the injured Luke Shaw, was sent off for a terrible two-footed lunge on Reid.

Not since Portsmouth faced Sunderland in Feb 2010 has a Premier League match seen three cards.
