The Hammers head into today’s game on the back of a really poor run of form. They haven’t won a league game since New Year’s Day.

The Saints, meanwhile, have really turned things around since they lost 9-0 at home to Leicester in October, with eight Premier League wins between then and now.

West Ham will at least have a spring in their step after their fine display at Anfield against Liverpool on Monday night. But they will have to replicate that display at the very least, if they are to beat Southampton today.

Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side will fancy their chances at the London Stadium, especially with Danny Ings firing on all cylinders. The striker has scored 15 goals in 27 Premier League outings for the Saints this season (Transfermarkt).

West Ham have beaten Southampton the last four times the two teams have met, however. So the east London outfit will fancy their chances.
