Southampton beat Premier League leaders Everton 2-0 at St Mary's Stadium on Sunday with goals from James Ward-Prowse and Che Adams as Carlo Ancelotti's side became the final club to lose a game this season.

Everton remain top of the standings with 13 points and a healthier goal difference than city rivals and reigning champions Liverpool but Southampton moved up to fifth with their third win in four matches.

"We knew it was a good challenge for us, they came here unbeaten and we didn't like that feeling. Our confidence was high," Ward-Prowse told Sky Sports.

"We were aggressive, we believe in what we are doing and we have the quality to go and score goals ... This gives us a lot of confidence, we weren't really troubled."

With about 20 minutes to go, Everton were reduced to 10 men when defender Lucas Digne was sent off for a straight red card after he fouled Kyle Walker-Peters and Carlo Ancelotti could not bring on another defender having already made three substitutions.
