A look at each occasion when Southampton have scored four goals or more away from home in the Premier League.

Southampton’s 4-3 win over Watford was the eighth time in Premier League history that Saints have scored four or more goals away from home.

It arrived on the back of Saints’ 4-0 win at Sunderland, which equalled a club record margin of victory in the top-flight.

Saints first scored four times away from home in the Premier League during the 1993/94 campaign as the visitors came out on top in a nine-goal thriller at Carrow Road.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, Saints have won on each occasion they have scored that many times on the road and, in each case, one player has scored two goals or more.

Following last weekend's eighth occasion of scoring four times on the road in the Premier League, below are profiles of all the matches where that has happened:

Norwich City 4-5 Southampton (April 1994)

Matt Le Tissier scores a penalty as part of his hat-trick at Carrow Road

Ullathorne OG, Le Tissier (3), Monkou

Southampton came out on top in this nine-goal game which ultimately went a long way towards ensuring their Premier League survival that season.

Matt Le Tissier grabbed a hat-trick, but he has previously stated that defender Ken Monkou’s decisive strike was the difference between staying up and relegation that term.

West Ham 2-4 Southampton (April 1998)

Carlton Palmer is congratulated on his goal in east London

Le Tissier, Østenstad (2), Palmer

Another end-of-season classic which saw Le Tissier on target again, but it was the two efforts from Egil Østenstad and final one from Carlton Palmer which put breathing space between Saints and the Hammers at Upton Park.

Trevor Sinclair and Steve Lomas were on target for the hosts, who finished the campaign four places above Southampton.


Leicester City 0-4 Southampton (December 2001)

Saints break a record against Leicester City

A.Svensson (2), Beattie, Pahars

Saints’ biggest Premier League win arrived at Filbert Street, with Marian Pahars netting the decisive fourth goal in the last minute to set the record.

Anders Svensson got the ball rolling with strikes either side of James Beattie’s effort which helped Southampton push on in their first season at St Mary’s, while the Foxes would go on to be relegated that year.


Chelsea 2-4 Southampton (January 2002)

James Beattie gets Saints off to a flier at Stamford Bridge

Beattie (2), Pahars, Marsden

This game started as it meant to go on. James Beattie’s glorious 35 yard free-kick put Saints into the lead, but the visitors fell 2-1 behind to strikes from Eidur Gudjohnsen and Jimmy-Floyd Hasselbaink before turning the match on its head in the second half.

Beattie added another after Marian Pahars and Chris Marsden had also struck.


Wolves 1-4 Southampton (April 2004)

Claus Lundekvam slides in his first goal for Southampton at Molineux

Beattie, Lundekvam, Phillips (2)

A game made famous by Claus Lundekvam’s first ever Southampton goal. The defender’s strike put Saints 2-0 up before future teammate Henri Camara got a goal back for the hosts.

A late double from striker Kevin Phillips ensured a three-goal margin of victory.


Aston Villa 2-4 Southampton (May 2016)

Shane Long heads Saints in front

Long, Tadić (2), Mané

Shane Long headed Southampton into an early lead against relegation-bound Aston Villa, with Dušan Tadić adding a second to seemingly put the game to bed.

Ashley Westwood’s strike on the stroke of half time gave Villa hope, before Tadić struck again. Westwood scored another for the hosts late on, but Sadio Mané restored the two-goal advantage in stoppage time.


Sunderland 0-4 Southampton (February 2017)

Manolo Gabbiadini nets his first at the Stadium of Light

Gabbiadini (2), Denayer OG, Long

Fresh from introducing himself to the Southampton faithful with a well-taken strike on his debut, Manolo Gabbiadini grabbed two goals to put Claude Puel’s men in control at the Stadium of Light.

An own-goal from defender Jason Denayer was added to by Shane Long’s late strike to equal Saints’ biggest ever Premier League win away from home.


Watford 3-4 Southampton (March 2017)

Nathan Redmond and Dušan Tadić  were each on target at Vicarage Road

Tadić, Redmond (2), Gabbiadini

After Troy Deeney had given Watford an early lead at Vicarage Road, Dušan Tadić levelled up, before Nathan Redmond put Saints ahead on the stroke of half time.

Stefano Okaka restored parity on 79 minutes before his former Sampdoria teammate Manolo Gabbiadini put Southampton back in front with Redmond making it 4-2 late on. Abdoulaye Doucouré scored in stoppage time to reduce the arrears.
