You know what they say about London buses? You wait ages for one......then two turn up at the same time!
Well, in a similar scenario, Saints two fixtures against London Clubs over Christmas.....resulted in two (pretty drab) 0-0's!
Despite that, given how the team have performed over the past few months - and Ralph Hasenhüttl being absent from the touchline, due to a positive COVID-19 test within his wider family - it was at least another point on the board (especially as we normally lose to the Hammers!)
Anyway, Saints will now head into 2021 with 26 points from their opening sixteen Premier League games. Plenty to build on.
