West Ham vs Southampton Prediction & Betting tips
West Ham United is visited by Southampton at London Stadium. The home team is very out of shape and really needs to worry, while visitors can still hope for a final ranking in the left row.
West Ham United:
West Ham United is experiencing a season to forget as quickly as possible. The Hammers are under the relegation line and it is no longer unthinkable that this West Ham United might be active in the Championship next season. In the first months of this season, Manuel Pellegrini did not succeed in getting West Ham United to play football, and David Moyes also took few points with the Londoners. It is all close to each other in the lower regions of the Premier League, but West Ham United must grab points quickly.
In the last five league matches, The Hammers only scored one point. It must be said that in that series of five duels West Ham United took on Liverpool twice and had to visit Leicester City and Manchester City. Last Monday evening, West Ham United played the away game at Liverpool and, partly due to a blunder by Łukasz Fabiański, gave The Hammers a 1-2 lead against the leader. West Ham United eventually left the field with a 3-2 loss and it was the fifteenth defeat of the season for The Hammers.
During the first months of this season, Southampton was also around the relegation zone. Ralph Hasenhüttl, however, has got Southampton to play football in recent months and the club from the port city is now neatly in twelfth place in the Premier League. The Saints can therefore hope for a final ranking in the left row, because Southampton has only three points less than Arsenal. Arsenal in North London is ninth in the Premier League, so anything is still possible for Hasenhüttl’s Southampton.
The absolute star at Southampton is currently Danny Ings. The 27-year-old attack leader has found his way completely at Southampton and has scored fifteen times in the Premier League this season. As a result, Ings can still hope for the top scorer title, although players like Jamie Vardy, Sergio Agüero and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang are more likely to qualify. Ings was unable to score last weekend in the 2-0 win for Southampton with Aston Villa. The Saints had not won the four games before and could use the three points again.
