Southampton manager Mark Hughes believes their rivals for Premier League safety might be looking over their shoulders

Southampton defender Nathan Redmond calls out the referee for not asserting control of the game in the latter stages of their 1-1 draw at Everton.

But Davies said he and his side will be looking to win the last game of the season at West Ham.

Southampton's hopes of avoiding relegation took a blow as Everton midfielder Tom Davies scored an equalizer in the sixth minute of added time to rescue a 1-1 draw this morning.

"I think [against Southampton] we did have most of the play, we just weren't creating the chances".

Saints, down to 10 men after the 85th-minute dismissal of Maya Yoshida, were leading 1-0 through substitute Nathan Redmond's first goal in nearly a year until Moss awarded a free-kick against the winger which led to Tom Davies' deflected equaliser.

In fact, Southampton took the lead halfway through the second half when Nathan Redmond headed home before they saw Maya Yoshida receive a second yellow card and be given his marching orders.

"In the end, we've probably made a couple of wrong decisions, which can happen when you're down to ten men and tiredness plays a part".

"We're disappointed because we haven't got what we deserved - that's sport and that's football, sometimes that happens", said Saints boss Mark Hughes.

"I thought we were bad".

Substitute Nathan Redmond's first goal in nearly a year appeared to have put the fight very much back in Saints' hands as it would have left them needing a win at fellow strugglers Swansea on Tuesday to guarantee safety.

"We have got something out of the game though and we are out of the bottom three".
