West Ham United have had a difficult season so far, with the team struggling to find consistency under the leadership of manager David Moyes. The Hammers have won just seven of their 29 league games this season and have lost their last three matches in a row. They currently sit in 18th place in the table, two points behind 17th-placed Newcastle United.
Southampton, on the other hand, have had a slightly better season, although they too have struggled for consistency. The Saints have won nine of their 29 league games this season and are currently in 14th place in the table, six points clear of the relegation zone.
The last time these two teams met was in December 2020, with Southampton coming out on top with a 2-0 victory. West Ham United will be hoping to turn the tables this time around and secure a much-needed win.
One player who will be key for West Ham United is striker Michail Antonio. The 31-year-old has been in fine form this season, scoring seven goals in 16 league appearances. He will be looking to add to his tally and help his team secure a vital win.
Southampton, meanwhile, will be relying on their attacking duo of Danny Ings and Che Adams. Ings has scored eight goals in 22 league appearances this season, while Adams has scored six goals in 28 league appearances. The pair will be looking to cause problems for the West Ham United defence and help their team secure all three points.
The match promises to be a tense affair, with both teams desperate for a win. West Ham United will be hoping that home advantage will work in their favour, while Southampton will be looking to build on their recent positive result against Tottenham Hotspur.
