The match

West Ham United will have another chance to fight for their place in the Premier League when they host struggling Southampton in their next league game. The two sides have struggled to rise from the lower reaches of the standings, and are separated by just a point. West Ham are 18th with 24 points while Southampton have 23 points at the bottom of the table. The key thing about this game is that either side could rise out of the relegation zone with a win here, depending on other outcomes. West Ham United are just a point away from safety and will hope to carry their form in the UEFA Conference League to this game. They come into this game unbeaten in their last three matches, two of them having posted clean sheets but they have just two wins in their last 14 league matches. They have failed to score in two of their last four league matches but they come here undefeated in their last four home matches in the league, with two wins and as many clean sheets.

In the final 13 minutes of their last match, Southampton rallied from 3-1 down to draw 3-3 with Tottenham before heading to the international break. They will be seeking a similar fighting spirit as they return to London for yet another tough encounter. However, they go into the West Ham game without a win in the last three matches since beating Leicester City 1-0 at the start of March. While the Saints have two clean sheets in their last four matches, they have failed to score in two of the last three matches and in three of the last five they have conceded two or more goals. Away from home, things haven't been so rosy for Southampton; they’ve failed to score in three of the last four matches, and also lost three of the last five.

Key Statistics

  • West Ham United have two wins in 14 league games.
  • West Ham have failed to score in two four league games.
  • West Ham United are unbeaten in four home league games.
  • Southampton have three losses in their last five away matches.
  • Southampton have failed to score in three of the last five league games.

The bet of our experts

West Ham United haven't beaten Southampton a lot in their recent meetings, but will be banking on a better run at home here. Though they are on a poor run, just like Southampton, West Ham are unbeaten in their last four home matches in the league. They welcome a side with three losses in five away matches and our prediction for the West Ham United v Southampton is for the home side to win.
