Jaaskelainen the star for Hammers

6:20 am on 16 September 2013

Veteran Finnish keeper Jussi Jaaskelainen put in a goalkeeping masterclass to ensure his West Ham United escaped Southampton with a scoreless draw in English football's Premier League.

Jaaskelainen was more than up to meeting England striker Rickie Lambert's shot in the closing stages and also kept out Morgan Schneiderlin's skidding volley among some other useful work.

Both sides have five points from their opening four games although a lack of goals will be a worry, especially for West Ham who are likely to be without striker Andy Carroll for several weeks with a foot injury.

The weekend's fixtures conclude Tuesday morning when Liverpool try and maintain the only 100 percent record in the Premier League with an away match at Swansea City.
