West Ham vs Southampton: Premier League preview

It’s a case of 18th plays 20th in the Premier League on Sunday although Bournemouth only need a point a day earlier to make this a showdown of the bottom two at London Stadium.

The Hammers have failed to show any consistency at all in recent weeks while winning two, losing two and drawing three in the league as a march up the table fails to appear for David Moyes.

The same can be said of Southampton, whose league form of late reads a very similar won two, lost two and drawn two.

Unlike West Ham, they have taken the plunge of changing manager – a fate Moyes may struggle to avoid if his side fall to another defeat.

West Ham vs Southampton team news

The Hammers’ injury have cleared up somewhat over the international break, with Lukasz Fabianski aiming to return from a set of facial injuries suffered against Nottingham Forest.

The goalkeeper is in training with Michail Antonio (calf) and Vladimir Coufal (heel) also likely to be involved.

Southampton could be without Che Adams after he withdrew from Scotland’s squad earlier in the week.

Mohamed Salisu should be fit but Armel Bella-Kotchap and Tino Livramento will miss out.

West Ham vs Southampton prediction

The Hammers are in fine fettle at home, where they are unbeaten in four, and should have enough threat in front of goal through ex-Saints man Danny Ings to score some goals.

Southampton, meanwhile, are quite tough to predict right now but have too many issues at the back to make themselves favourites in east London.

West Ham to win, 2-1.
