Jussi Jaaskelainen produced several brilliant saves as West Ham came away from Premier League rivals Southampton with a fortunate point.

The 38-year-old denied Dani Osvaldo, Morgan Schneiderlin and Rickie Lambert with three spectacular stops in a match dominated by the Saints.

Jaaskelainen also tipped over Victor Wanyama's strike, while Lambert saw his header bounce back off the post.

Allardyce praises keeper Jaaskelainen

James Collins wasted a glorious chance for West Ham in the closing stages.

That effort was the Hammers' clearest opportunity of the match and summed up their profligacy in front of goal - Sam Allardyce's men have now only managed six shots on target in the league all season and have not scored since the opening day.

Southampton supporters would have been left frustrated by their players' inability to breach the last line of defence, although they would have been pleased with the overall performance.

They twice caused panic among the visiting defence inside the first 15 minutes with surges down right.

West Ham woes

  • The Hammers have won only one of their last 16 Premier League away games (D4 L10)

Jay Rodriguez was the first to attack, flying down the flank before picking out record-signing Osvaldo, who saw his eight-yard shot brilliantly blocked by Jaaskelainen.

Luke Shaw was next to try his luck. The 18-year-old drifted past Guy Demel but saw his cut-back blocked by the West Ham defence.

The Hammers seemed devoid of ideas in attack. They had the ball in the net when Kevin Nolan superbly slotted the ball into an empty net after Artur Boruc had rushed out to try to block Matt Jarvis's effort. However, the assistant had already flagged Jarvis offside.

Saints did enough to win - Pochettino

Moments later, the away support raised their voices again, but this time it was as a result of Schneiderlin's two-footed challenge that floored West Ham midfielder Mohamed Diame. Referee Andre Marriner waved play-on as the Senegal international lay on the grass. Captain Nolan and his team-mates made their views know to the West Midlands official.

The second half began much like the first with Mauricio Pochettino's Saints on the attack.

Former Celtic midfielder Wanyama was first to test the ex-Bolton keeper with a 30-yard swerving shot that was tipped behind. From the corner, England striker Lambert, making his 200th appearance for the Saints, had the best chance of the contest when his header crashed off the near post.

Moments later, came the best save when Jaaskelainen sprung to his left to prevent Schneiderlin's volley from finding the bottom corner.

West Ham almost performed one of the greatest Premier League robberies in recent years when Collins was left with the goal at his mercy only to smash Mark Noble's pull-back over the bar.

Southampton manager Mauricio Pochettino:

"We created the better chances, we were much closer than they were to actually getting a victory today.

"But in football, it is not just about creating chances, you need to be make them into goals. Today we weren't able to do it and we are frustrated by that.

"I am pleased with all of my players - they all played well and put in a great effort today."
