There were scenes that disbelieved at the London Stadium when West Ham faced Burnley approaching three weeks ago now. Fans unhappy with the current ownership of the club voiced their opinions in an extremely aggressive manner, forcing the majority to exit the boardroom, while some even entered the pitch and confronted the players. The possibility of abandoning the game was never exercised, but the incidents had a clear impact on the home players as they went on to lose 3-0. This game is not only crucial to helping the club move on from one of the darkest days in their modern history, but they need a win against another struggling side, Southampton, to ease growing fears of relegation this season.

888 HAVE YOU COVERED!

The Saints will be newly confident after the arrival of Mark Hughes, who arrived at St Mary’s after Mauricio Pellegrino was sacked earlier this month. Southampton have won just once in 17 Premier League games and sit in the relegation and two points behind West Ham. But Hughes will hope his impact can be swift after he helped them reach the FA Cup semi finals two weeks ago. In our opinion, though, this one has draw written all over it.

Form

The Burnley result was the fourth time in five games West Ham have conceded three goals or more in a game, and they are without a win in their last three. Though that did come at home, which should give them confidence coming into this game.

A 3-0 humiliation at Newcastle laid bare the issues Pellegrino had for a long time at Southampton, and they will hope Hughes can turn things around quickly.
