Southampton vs West Ham: Premier League – LIVE!

The Hammers have somewhat lost their way in recent weeks, winning just one of their past five matches to drop down to 10th heading into this round of fixtures.

A very conservative team selection from David Moyes against Brighton was a puzzling one and resulted in a disappointing draw at home to the relegation candidates.

Southampton were also left to rue a missed opportunity as they drew with Fulham, and will be without manager Ralph Hasenhuttl after a member of the manager’s family tested positive for coronavirus.

Pablo Fornals, Manuel Lanzini and Andriy Yarmolenko are all pushing for a start as Moyes looks to shuffle his pack during the heavy fixture list. Jarrod Bowen has hooked at half-time against Brighton, although that was likely tactical rather than a reaction to her performance.

Youngster Ben Johnson scored and should keep his place at the back, though Michail Antonio remains sidelined.

Standard Sport prediction: 1-1 draw

These are two sides whose promising starts have shown signs of fizzling out in recent weeks and the hectic fixture list is unlikely to do either many favours as they look to return to form.

West Ham team news

Michail Antonio’s hamstring problems continue to rule him out, meaning Sebastian Haller will likely lead the line again, while Ben Johnson could continue at left wing-back after scoring his first senior goal against Brighton.

Moyes will surely ditch Mark Noble from his midfield in favour of another more creative player, with Pablo Fornals and Said Benrahma in contention.
