Southampton rediscovered their goalscoring touch on the day they signed Charlie Austin by thumping West Brom 3-0.
Saints splashed out £4million to land striker Austin from QPR on Saturday morning in a bid to pep up their misfiring attack.
And just a couple of hours later Austin watched from the stands as James Ward-Prowse scored twice before Dusan Tadic wrapped up a comfortable victory.

Liverpool are set to complete a deal to sign Queens Park Rangers defender Steven Caulker on loan until the end of the season, according to reports.
The England man has been on loan at Southampton this season but a lack of playing time means Liverpool are hoping that arrangement can be cancelled and he can move to Anfield for the remainder of the campaign.
Caulker's last appearance for Southampton was, ironically, against Liverpool in the Capital One Cup when they were thrashed 6-1.
Manager Jurgen Klopp currently has Martin Skrtel and Dejan Lovren sidelined by hamstring injuries and although fellow centre-backs Kolo Toure (cramp) and Mamadou Sakho (knee) both look likely to be fit for Wednesday's visit of Arsenal, the German feels he needs more cover.
Fraser Forster was delighted to get back on the pitch after a lengthy injury lay-off, but the Southampton and England goalkeeper will not be rushing his recovery.
Saints' 1-0 win against Chelsea in the Under-21 Premier League Cup on Wednesday was the 27-year-old's first match in 291 days.
Forster damaged his left patellar tendon after falling awkwardly in March's Premier League clash with Burnley and has been on the long road to recovery every since.
"Obviously, (I was) a bit rusty, but it was perfect," the keeper said after his return.
"I'm buzzing to get 90 minutes under my belt - it's probably been nine-and-a-half months now.
"I'm just delighted, just to kind of get through it, and the victory makes it that much better."
