After a terrific run, David Moyes’ men have begun to falter, winning just one of their last five matches.
Sunday’s 2-2 draw with Brighton was perhaps the most worrying display yet, with Moyes’ conservative team selection leading to a sub-par display, from which the Hammers were fortunate to rescue a late point through Tomas Soucek.
Saints had a disappointing result themselves on Boxing Day, however, as they were held to a goalless draw by Fulham.
Southampton vs West Ham is scheduled for a 6pm kick-off on Tuesday, December 29, 2020.
The game will be played behind-closed-doors at St. Mary’s because of current coronavirus restrictions.

Southampton vs West Ham 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.
Southampton vs 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.
