Southampton defender Jos Hooiveld admits he enjoyed the physical battle with West Ham United.

The Dutchman admits he "kind of liked" the direct approach of West Ham in the 1-1 draw.

"It was exactly what we expected," he said. "A lot of fights, a lot of scraps and high-tempo play. It was like a typical West Ham game against us.

"It's kind of nice.

"It was a bit unfortunate I directly got an elbow after the second minute, but that's part of it.

"I kind of liked it."
