Late time goal seals Bournemouth victory over Southampton as they march out of St. Mary’s Stadium in joy.

Bournemouth have moved to the 3rd place on the league with 10 points while waiting for the rest of the fixtures today, after thrashing Southampton 1-3.

Nathan Ake opened the score line for Bournemouth when he converted the corner kick with a loud header. Diogo Rico had placed it so well that Ake just had to jump for it.

A second goal from the Bournemouth was disallowed as the VAR intervened on Joshua King’s quick run past the Southampton defenders before receiving the ball.

35 minutes on the clock and Philip Billing is in position to shoot or give a pass into the 18 yard box, which he carefully passed over to Harry Wilson who wiped it into the post, leaving his side 2 goals ahead in the game.

Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men tried to get back into the game at the 53rd minute when Che Adams’ forceful attack induced Steve Cook into tripping him in the 18-yard box.

James Ward Prowse packed the scoring glory for Southampton as he handsomely netted the penalty, leaving his side just one goal behind their Bournemouth.

Southampton tried to maintain the pressure while they look forward for an equaliser but just close to the end of the game, Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson, managed to beat Southampton keeper and defender as they three went for the ball.
