SOUTHAMPTON, England -- Adam Lallana and Jay Rodriguez scored to give Southampton its third successive Premier League victory with a 2-0 win over Swansea.

The match between two sides known for their attractive style lived up the billing, with play flowing from end to end in an entertaining encounter at St Mary's. Lallana gave the hosts the lead in 19th but Swansea dominated after that, only for substitute Rodriguez to take advantage of slack defending to seal the win in the 83rd for Mauricio Pochettino's side.

Lallana latched on to a neat ball from Steven Davis to put Saints ahead, but Swansea then forced Artur Boruc into fine saves to stop Michu and Wilfried Bony.

Nathan Dyer also hit the inside of the post shortly before halftime.
