West Ham boss David Moyes will be desperate for his team to pick up all three points against Southampton this afternoon.

The Saints have been fairly poor this season and if the Hammers players at their best, we should have no problem beating Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side.

West Ham insider drops Moyes team selection update for Southampton clash

With Michail Antonio having missed our last match against Tottenham, there were fears that he could be unavailable for the game against the Saints today.

It appears as though that isn’t the case though.

Claret and Hugh reckon that the 31-year-old is in Moyes’s plans for today’s game.

Hopefully the 11 days rest has done Antonio the world of good. We need him back to his best as a matter of urgency.

The former Nottingham Forest man started this season in fine form but has gone off the boil badly over the past month or so.

Our hopes of finishing inside the top four this term depends heavily on Antonio’s ability to rediscover his best form. He is unplayable on his day.

Micky has the kind of ability that could cause the Southampton defence all sorts of problems.
