Southampton vs West Ham PredictionSouthampton vs West Ham Prediction and Preview for Saturday's EPL fixture. Nothing really separates these two sides in terms of quality but the Premier League standings suggest otherwise. West Ham United are two places above Southampton, the latter wallowing in the relegation places.

However, there is only one point between these two teams, with the Hammers boasting of a better goal difference ratio compared to their opposition. As such, the importance of this game cannot be overemphasized as it could play a vital role in both sides’ relegation battle.

With West Ham struggling to find their grove on their travels, the hosts are likely to deprive West Ham of all three points this weekend. Though, they will have their work cut-out in order to achieve this feat.

When West Ham United come visiting St. Mary’s Stadium on Saturday afternoon, the shaft will be separated from the wheat, as both sides battle for bragging rights and more importantly, maximum points.
Match status: 2019/20 Premier League - Matchweek 17

Southampton v West Ham Team News

Southampton had been on an impressive four-game unbeaten run before seeing their run come to a halt last time out against Newcastle United. The Magpies edged them out by a narrow 2-1 margin to seal the three points.

The bald-headed Jonjo Shelvey turned destructor-in-chief, condemning the Saints to defeat on away soil. Danny Ings fired the hosts in front early in the second half, following some good work in the Southampton midfield, to set the England striker up nicely for a finish. The travelling fans couldn’t hide their delight following the goal, as they kept chanting the striker’s name in jocundity.

Their joy was cut short however, as two quick-fire goals from the Magpies secured all three points for the hosts.

With just fifteen points from a possible forty-eight, Southampton fans will have to trace down to the bottom half of the table to find the name of their club – a club wallowing in the relegation zone.

West Ham, on the other hand, are sporting no more than a one-point cushion above them on the ladder. In truth, the visitors have not been faring well on their travels in recent weeks and have been recorded back-to-back defeats in their last two games.

Manuel Pellegrini will not have too much complaints regarding their 3-1 home loss to Arsenal in their previous Premier League fixture. However, it’s their 2-0 loss to Wolves on the road that will give their manager something to worry about.

The Argentine tactician now has to return to the drawing board in a bid to figure out where his team got it all wrong. Losing three from their last four outings, things are really going south at the West London club.

That said, three of their previous seven h2h encounters on this ground have ended in draws, with the visitors coming away with the win in two of those games. Given that the Hammers have also salvaged nothing less than a point in three of their last eight outings, the safest punt would have to be a draw no bet.

Injured or Suspended Players:

Southampton: Stuart Armstrong.

West Ham: Lukasz Fabianski, Manuel Lanzini.
