Southampton moved into the Premier League's top four by sweeping aside bottom club Sheffield United.

Che Adams pounced in the box to poke in the opener, Stuart Armstrong scored a deflected opener, with Nathan Redmond came off the bench to add a delightful third.

Saints climb as high as third, at least until Leicester play later on Sunday, and are only a point behind top two Tottenham and Liverpool, who are also both still to play.

The season is only 12 games old, but Sheffield United's situation is looking increasingly dire. They still have only one point and will be at least six points from safety regardless of Sunday's other results.

No team in the Premier League era has had so few points at this stage of the season and gone on to avoid relegation.
