West Ham started this season in Premier League very poor and after five rounds they are standing in the relegation zone. The only team that they have managed to beat is Bournemouth, while other four matches they all lost. Home team have a lot of problems in defence and they are one of the worst in league, conceded 13 goals (average more than two goals per match). The match against Southampton is very important for them and they will be fully motivated to win this game and move up on the table. Dimitri Payet is far from the form from the previous season and everyone in the club expect they he will explode in the next period. The only player who shines this season is Michail Antonio, who has already scored 5 goals and he could be the most dangerous player for Southampton’s defence.

Southampton also didn’t shine at the beginning of the new season in Premier League. After four matches without win, Southampton have managed to three points in the previous round against Swansea. The match against West Ham is very important for them and visitors will try to repeat their performance from last match and get back home unbeaten. Two important players from the last season, Mané and Wanyama, both left the club and Southampton have many problems in the attack. In the five matches this season they have managed to score only 4 goals and they have one of the worst attacks in Premier League so far. Their opponent have very shaky defence, so visitors hope that they can take an advantage in the midfield and hit the net at least once.

Team News

Home side miss Cresswell, Masuaku, Carroll, Sakho and Ayew. On the other side, visitors will be without Pied, Boufal and Gardos.

West Ham vs Southampton Predicted Lineups

West Ham: Adrian, Arbeloa, Reid, Ogbonna, Byram, Noble, Kouyate, Antonio, Lanzini, Payet, Zaza.
Southampton: Forster, Soares, Fonte, van Dijk, Bertrand, Davis, Romeu, Clasie, Tadic, Redmond, Austin.

West Ham vs Southampton Prediction

Home side have an advantage on home field, but their performance is very poor. Visitors also have many problems, but they believe that can take at least one point in London. However, I expect open match between West Ham vs Southampton and goals in both nets.
