The Hammers are in the midst of a woeful run of form. They have won just one out of their last 10 Premier League games.

West Ham now sit in 16th spot in the Premier League table just one point clear of the drop zone.

The Saints have endured a difficult campaign too. They sit in 18th spot, although they have been on a decent run of late, taking seven points from their last four games.

Hammers boss Manuel Pellegrini is under real pressure. A defeat at Southampton today could spell the end of his time in charge in east London.

Ralph Hasenhuttl is also a man under pressure. So both teams and their managers could really do with all three points today.

And with both Southampton and West Ham surely going out to win the match, it should be an exciting game of football on display at St Mary’s this evening.
