The Hammers goalkeeper was on top form, making a number of important saves, but the visitors failed to find the net for the third consecutive match.

They have scored two goals in four games this season, although they are without the injured Andy Carroll while Croatia international Mladen Petric is not yet match fit.

On whether he was worried about their lack of cutting edge, Jaaskelainen told Sky Sports 1: "A little bit but we are creating chances, we just have to start putting them away."

He added: "The clean sheet gives me most satisfaction. We worked hard...and we had a couple of chances to get a goal."

Midfielder Mark Noble paid tribute to his team-mate, saying: "He was brilliant, when you clean sheets it's a massive help. We are not scoring goals but we are keeping clean sheets.

"I thought it (the result) was quite fair. We're happy with the point. The lads dug in well."

However, Noble admitted he wanted all three points before the match, saying: "We came here to win the game. We could have nicked it in the end and then everyone would have said it was a smash and grab.

"Southampton played well and Jussi made a couple of good saves."

f Klopp is available and willing to go there, they have to sign him up. Far better manager than Rodgers. The reason Liverpool fail in so many big games is the inflexible nature of their manager and his inability to find strikers who fit into his inflexible style of play. A feature of nearly every game that the team comes up short is the way the opposition midfield appears to overpower them. It's too easy.

est player award should not go to a player who's second best at all the importent categories (i.e goals, assists etc) just because his team is at the top. If you are not first you are last; if you're second you are the first loser ( looking at you Hazard). David De Gea for POTY.
