(MENAFN - Kora)

The hosts trailed after just eight minutes through Maya Yoshida's towering header, before Matthew Jarvis was played in by Kevin Nolan to level things with a tidy finish, despite there being a hint of offside



There were no doubts over West Ham's second three minutes later, though, with fans' favourite Cole heading Stewart Downing's corner against the post before tucking away the rebound



The win was wrapped up in the 71st minute courtesy of Nolan's superb overhead kick, much to the delight of manager Sam Allardyce



Jay Rodriguez, who is currently second only to Daniel Sturridge as the league's top-scoring Englishman, was one of six changes to the Southampton side that crashed out of the FA Cup last week, as the visitors sought to penetrate a West Ham defence enjoying a run of four consecutive clean sheets, their best record in the Premier League era



A confident start by the visitors was rewarded early on when Steven Davis' whipped free-kick from the right found Yoshida, who rose highest to power home from eight yards



West Ham, unchanged from the 2-0 win over Norwich City, nearly hit back immediately, after Guy Demel's low cross eventually found its way to Nolan, who could only stab his effort straight at Artur Boruc



The captain made amends just 10 minutes later, producing a wonderful ball over the top of the defence for Jarvis, who beat the offside trap to round the keeper and tap home, despite replays suggesting that the winger may have been offside



West Ham looked to be in the ascendency and took te lead three minutes later when Southampton failed to deal with Downing's corner, allowing Cole to head onto the post before lashing home from close range at the second attempt




A shell-shocked Southampton struggled to regain their early momentum, but nearly restored parity just after the half-hour mark when Rickie Lambert rose to meet Jack Cork's cross from the right, only to be denied by the woodwork



There was more controversy just after the break when Jose Fonte's goal-bound header appeared to strike the arm of James Collins, although referee Mark Clattenburg dismissed calls for a penalty



Collins was at the centre of proceedings again just before the hour mark, heading Downing's corner just over the bar as the hosts looked to wrap the game up



They were nearly made to pay for their wastefulness five minutes later, with Adam Lallana failing to get on the end of a wonderful low cross from Luke Shaw, before substitute Gaston Ramirez fired over a minute later



Southampton continued to press and should have levelled through Lallana, who capitalised on a defensive error to race through on goal, but could only guide a tame effort wide



But West Ham secured the three points with just under 20 minutes left when Cole's flick-on found Nolan, who produced an acrobatic overhead kick to put the game out of reach



Substitute Mohamed Diame crashed an effort off the bar late on, but a greater deficit would have been harsh on Southampton, who saw a six-match unbeaten league run come to an end.
