  • Rodriguez has four goals in all competitions this season - one more than last term

Jay Rodriguez's first Premier League goals since August gave Southampton victory over local rivals Bournemouth.

Both sides scored with their first efforts on target, with Nathan Ake's acrobatic header putting the Cherries in front after six minutes before Ryan Bertrand levelled with a solo dribble and finish.

Half-time substitute Steve Davis made an immediate impact, providing Rodriguez with a tap-in to give the Saints the lead.

And Rodriguez's superb 20-yard finish late on eased the visitors to victory.

Southampton move up to seventh, three points above Bournemouth, who stay 10th.
