Romeu doubled Saints’ advantage midway through the second half with a stunning volley from just inside the area.

The win lifts Southampton into the top half of the table while the Baggies remain winless and just a point above the relegation zone as it stands.

watch as aubameyang and lacazette appear to slam seats as kieran tierney misses chance for arsenal against dundalk

PIERRE-EMERICK AUBAMEYANG and Alexandre Lacazette appeared furious as Kieran Tierney blazed a shot over the bar during Arsenal’s 3-0 win against Dundalk.

The pair were spotted slamming seats and looking angry, apparently in response to the miss, despite the fact the Gunners were 3-0 up and cruising.

Eddie Nketiah, Joe Willock and Nicolas Pepe scored three goals in six minutes either side of half-time in the Europa League stroll.

Tierney then came on to replace Granit Xhaka in the 74th minute as Mikel Arteta looked to shore things up.

But soon after his introduction, the Scotsman found himself joining in with an Arsenal attack.



Reiss Nelson dribbled the ball into the box and rather than crossing himself, he laid it back for Tierney on the left corner of the penalty box.

Surprisingly, the former Celtic man opted to shoot instead of dinking it back into the box for his waiting team-mates.

But the defender in him shone through as he smashed it over the bar.

Cameras immediately panned to striking duo Aubameyang and Lacazette who appeared fuming with Tierney’s decision making – although some have suggested they were joking.

Lacazette looked bemused as Aubameyang twice slammed the chair in front of him and turned to his left with a look of disgust on his face.

Once the footage surfaced online, Gooners were quick to jump in on the comments.

One wrote: “Don’t know why they’re annoyed, it’s a Europa League game and we’re winning comfortably let the young guns have a run. We have United this weekend.”

Smokey replied: “It’s a winning mentality man it’s that simple.

“He’s hungry for more and doesn’t want us to sit back so can’t complain with our striker being passionate about us not scoring more.”

Fezile quipped: “Looks like someone put money on a 4-0 win.”

Meanwhile Big M said: “I think he was joking around with Lacazette and Pepe and doing what fans do at the game.”

Another also suggested they were kidding: “He’s joking about, calm down you lot.”

Arguably Tierney’s best highlight of the night was when he arrived at the Emirates wearing just a t-shirt despite the wintry conditions.

derby takeover abu dhabi royal familys sheikh khaled bin zayed al nahyan worth 150billion reportedly eyes deal

SHEIKH Khaled bin Zayed Al Nahyan – a member of the Abu Dhabi royal family – is reportedly looking to take over Derby.

Worth £150BILLION and the cousin of Manchester City owner Sheikh Mansour, Sheikh Khaled, 62, recently failed in bids to take over Liverpool and Newcastle.

Sheikh Khaled is rumoured to be keen on taking over Derby County

But now, The Athletic are claiming he is keen to buy out Derby – with current owner Mel Morris thought to be keen to sell and holding out for around £60million.

Sheikh Khaled is believed to have seen a £2billion bid to take over Liverpool rejected in 2018.

If successful, that would have been the most expensive buy-out in football history.

More recently, he was unsuccessful in his £350m bid to take control of Newcastle just last year.

The Athletic have revealed Derventio Holdings (UK) Limited was officially registered with Britain’s registrar of companies.

Derventio was a Roman town which grew to become what we now know as Derby.

The company lists three directors: Midhat Kamil Kidwai – managing director of the Bin Zayed group – and two Swiss-based British businessmen, Andrew Obolensky and Christopher Samuelson.

Samuelson has plenty of experience in taking over football clubs too, helping Reading in 2012 and Aston Villa in 2016.

Sheikh Khaled has been named as a ‘person with significant control’ at Derventio Holdings (UK) Limited.

Sheikh Khaled established the Bin Zayed Group in 1988 having graduated in business administration from Boston University before completing a PHD in finance from Michigan State.

Meanwhile, it’s claimed Derby owner Morris – who bought the club in 2015 – has been keen to offload ‘at least a significant chunk’ of the club for a year now.

Having been in the Premier League for just one season since 2002, Derby have been leaking money in recent years, with Morris – worth £500m – keen to escape.

Foster Gillett – son of former Liverpool owner George – is one interested party.

Morris was even forced to SELL Pride Park to another of his companies in order to avoid being in breach of the Football League’s profitability and sustainability rules.

With Phillip Cocu under pressure as Derby boss, Wayne Rooney has been linked with the manager’s position as the Rams look to the future, on and off the pitch.

Bin Zayed Group and Samuelson are yet to comment on the report.
