Tip Reasoning

  • West Ham have won each of their last three home meetings with Southampton.
  • Southampton have lost nine of their last ten away assignments.

Europa League the target for Irons

West Ham’s Champions League qualification hopes have dissolved but the Irons need only a point from their final day clash with Southampton on Sunday to seal their place in next season’s Europa League.

A combination of mental and physical fatigue has hampered the Hammers in recent weeks, though their hard-fought 3-1 triumph at West Brom on Wednesday was a welcome return to winning ways.

West Ham will be determined to put on a show for 10,000 of their returning fans on Sunday and they look favourites to land their 10th home win of the campaign at the Saints’ expense.

Southampton set sights on summer

Southampton meanwhile, looked a little leggy in their defeat at Leeds in midweek, and with several of their players eyeing summer exits, they shouldn’t be expected to pull up their socks on Sunday.

The Saints’ form on the road since the turn of the year has been miserable and their only victory in ten away matches sandwiched between nine defeats came at bottom club Sheffield United.

Back Hammers to end on a high

Southampton won on their first trip to the London Stadium in 2016, though three successive defeats in Stratford followed and a similar outcome is anticipated on Sunday.

Only Man City, Tottenham and Chelsea have collected more points on their own stomping ground than the Irons this term, and West Ham can harness home advantage and the energy from their returning fans to see off the Saints this weekend.

David Moyes’ men have kept only two clean sheets in their last nine matches at the London Stadium however and a consolation effort could be on offer for Southampton. With that considered, we’ve settled on a 2-1 correct score prediction for Sunday.

West Ham United injuries and team news

Manuel Lanzini, Arthur Masuaku and Lukasz Fabianski are all rated as doubtful for West Ham, though David Moyes had decent options to choose from elsewhere.

Southampton injuries and team news

Ryan Bertrand and Oriol Romeu are expected to miss out for Southampton again, while Jan Bednarek and Che Adams are also in a race to be fit for Sunday.

  • West Ham have scored the opening goal in four of the last six Premier League meetings with these opponents.
  • West Ham were 3-1 winners against Southampton last time they met at home in the Premier League.
