  • McGinn's game comes to an unfortunate early end as he's taken off for Nakamba. Dean Smith will be hoping he's not out for too long with the games coming thick and fast this Christmas.

  • GOAAAL! 1-0 SAINTS! Ings keeps his excellent run of form going! He's in the right place at the right time to get on the end of Long's effort. Long initially spun in behind the Villa defence to get on the end of Redmond's pass and drew a good save from Heaton, but Ings is on hand to convert the rebound.

  • GOAAAL! A BRACE FOR INGS! He makes it 3-0 Southampton with a powerful finish at the near post. Hojbjerg starts the move with a great pass wide to Redmond, and his cross is poorly defended by Nakamba and Ings is in the right place again to shoot past Heaton.

  • GOAL! GREALISH MAKES IT 3-1! Captain Jack takes matters into his own hands and it's a beauty from outside the box! Southampton clear the corner only as far as Grealish at the edge of the box and he chests it down superbly, lets it bounce then rifles his effort into the top-right corner.
