Southampton vs West Ham Preview and Livestream
Winless in their last six games in the league, Southampton have experienced an unimpressive start to their campaign so far. Much was expected from Ralph Hasenhüttl’s side after a string of impressive attacking displays towards the end of last season, however the Saints have failed to live up to those expectations and have lacked any form of cutting edge in thier play. With Chelsea loanee Armando Broja and captain James Ward-Prowse offering the only rays of hope thus far, a fixture against a misfiring Hammers provides the perfect opportunity for other members of the squad to chip in and get the South Coast club back on track.
Just like Southampton, the Hammers too have experienced a drop-off in recent times. Flying in the top four till just the last week, their poor run of just 1 win from the last 5 league games has seen them drop out of the Champions League spots. They too need star man Michail Antonio firing on all cylinders again and will hope this is the perfect fixture for the same.

Southampton Team News vs West Ham
With the Premier League deciding against postponing the Boxing Day fixtures, it remains to be seen how many COVID absentees both sides have. Southampton currently have no known cases of the virus in their squad. However, both first-choice goalkeepers Alex McCarthy and Fraser Forster are expected to be out meaning emergency replacement Willy Caballero is likely to start between the sticks. Stuart Armstrong and Che Adams complete the list of injury doubts in an otherwise fit Saints squad.

Southampton vs West Ham Prediction
The Saints are clearly suffering from a lack of belief in their performances, while the Londoners come into this game in disappointing form. West Ham have the firepower in the likes of Michail Antonio to test Southampton’s resolve and we believe David Moyes’ side have what it takes to get a 2-0 win at home against Ralph Hasenhüttl’s men, a result that will surely cause more relegation headaches for the Saints faithful.
