Tip Reasoning

  • West Ham have scored in all eight of their home games in the Premier League.
  • The Hammers have just one clean sheet at home in the league.
  • Both teams to score has landed on four of their last six league fixtures.
  • Saints have lost five of their eight Premier League away games.

Out of form pair meet at London Stadium

West Ham and Southampton are both struggling for form ahead of their Boxing Day meeting at the London Stadium.

The Hammers are winless in four games in all competitions after Wednesday’s 2-1 EFL Cup defeat at Spurs, while Saints are winless in their last six with three draws and three defeats.

Home advantage should give West Ham the edge but Southampton are among the league’s draw specialists with eight of their 17 games finishing honours even so instead goals for both teams looks the way to go for our main bet.

Back both teams to score at the London Stadium

West Ham failed to score in three games prior to their loss at Tottenham but in one of those fixtures they fielded a changed side in a Europa League dead rubber and the other two were away from home. At the London Stadium in the Premier League, West Ham have scored in all eight of their games – hitting 16 goals in total – but have conceded 12 and have just one clean sheet.

Southampton have only failed to score in two of their last 12 games in all competitions, at Liverpool and Arsenal, and both teams to score has landed in four of their last six Premier League fixtures.

Hammers can make most of home comforts

West Ham have won three of their last four home games and those wins have come against Tottenham, Chelsea and Liverpool so they should be able to take maximum points when Saints visit.

Southampton have only managed one win away from home and that came at struggling Watford. Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men have lost five of their eight trips so far – including three of their last four – so going for a West Ham win in our correct score bet appears the best move here and a 3-1 win for the hosts has some appeal.

The Hammers are averaging two goals per-game at home but have scored exactly three in two of their last three league games at the London Stadium. Southampton have conceded 19 goals in nine trips, with 11 of those coming in their last four.

West Ham predicted lineup: Fabianski, Coufal, Dawson, Diop, Johnson, Rice, Soucek, Rice, Bowen, Lanzini, Fornals, Antonio

Southampton predicted lineup: Caballero, Walker-Peters, Bednarek, Salisu, Livmarento, Redmond, Romeu, Ward-Prowse, Elyounoussi, Tella, Broja
