Premier League – Southampton – West Ham United on Match-day 4

Southampton vs. West Ham United

Soton at home against The Hammers – Saturday – 4:00pm GMT – St. Mary’s Stadium.

The Hammers go to St. Mary’s Stadium with Champion’s League dreams for next season very much alive. They currently sit in second as they take on thirteenth placed Soton.

Southampton go into this match with two points secured

Soton have been inconsistent in their previous two games, drawing 2-2 at Newcastle United and 1-1 at Manchester United, so a win in this fixture must be the focus.

With two draws in two fixtures, Manager Ralph Hasenhuttl has plenty to ponder, going into the next match, not least of which is how to get the wins he needs. Their position is thirteenth in the League, and they have two points drawn two games and lost one game.

When Soton host The Hammers, they will do so on the back of one draws on their own ground.

A win in this fixture would take Southampton’s points to 5 in the League.

Soton are no strangers this season to illness and injury and Ralph Hasenhuttl is concerned that Saturday’s fixture could see him without two of his key players.

West Ham United’s Premier League season, has so far seen them gain seven points, going into this game

David Moyes’ men were held to a disappointing draw against Crystal Palace in their last fixture, he will be keen to improve on that in this game.

A draw statistic of one in one game is not all bad, but unfortunately will not bring the success David Moyes’ men wishes for ultimately. With seven points, they currently sit second in the League having won two matches and drawn one game.

Playing away from home, The Hammers have won one game.

West Ham United will have secured 10 points so far this season, should they secure a win.

The Hammers’s squad will likely be depleted of two of their key players when they start on Saturday, due to injury or illness.
