West Ham vs Southampton Match Previews

Under-pressure West Ham boss David Moyes try to resuscitate the sagging hopes of his squad, who last won a league match at home 4-0 over visiting AFC Bournemouth last January. They have gone winless after that, absorbing a loss and had two draws in their last three stints at London Stadium.

So far. West Ham United are winless in their last seven league matches. They are on the back of two successive defeats (2-0 at Manchester City and the latest 3=2 at Liverpool. As a result, the Hammers are in the relegation zone with 24 points at 17th spot. They have similar points with 18th-placed Watford and six over bottom-side Norwich City.

Southampton, meanwhile travel to London Stadium after thumping Aston Villa 2-0 at home the last time out. The squad of Ralph Hasenhuttl claimed that win after three straight defeats (4-0 at Liverpool, 3-2 at Tottenham Hotspur and 2-1 against visiting Burnley.

FOUR WINS OVER THE SAINTS

Despite their present dilemma, West Ham United will be in high spirits for this coming match because of the fact that they have beaten Southampton in their last four-head-to-head meetings, the latest a 1-0 win at St. Mary’s Stadium. They also had two wins over the Saints at home, while the other game was another win 1-0 away.

Can Southampton break their jinx against West Ham United, or will the Hammers continue their dominance over the Saints?

West Ham vs Southampton Prediction

• West Ham may sit in the relegation zone, but they’ve had some tough fixtures of late, facing Leicester, Liverpool (twice) and Man City in their last 5 games. At home, Liverpool are the only side to have picked up a win at the Olympic Stadium in 2020.

• Southampton ended a run of 2 straight league defeats with a home victory against fellow strugglers Aston VIlla, but considering they themselves are in the bottom half of the table, its tough to see how they are favourites in this game. They are however one of just 2 sides to have a better away record than home record in the EPL this season.

•  I feel West Ham’s poor form has been exaggerated considering the tough opposition they have faced in recent weeks, and are more than capable of picking up all the points this weekend. I think they should be small favourites, so the value appears to be on the Hammers.
