West Ham vs Southampton - Premier League preview and team news


Bookmark and Share

By Stephen Donovan

West Ham United will be looking for their fourth consecutive Premier League victory when they meet Southampton at Upton Park.



Wins over Swansea City, Aston Villa and Norwich City have catapulted the Hammers up to 11th in the table, and positivity around East London has seemingly been restored after much suffering this season. They still cannot afford to rest easily, however, as they are still only four points clear of danger, but with Andy Carroll set to return after this match, things look altogether brighter for Sam Allardyce.


Jose Fonte’s goal at Hull City lifted Southampton up to eighth in what has been a fine season for the South coast club, but the decision of manager Mauricio Pochettino to make six changes for the FA Cup tie at Sunderland was met with heavy criticism, particularly as it contributed to a poor performance and a defeat. The Saints are looking for their third straight Premier League away win.


Carroll completes his three match ban for the home side, who are also without Joey O’Brien and Ricardo Vaz Te. Ravel Morrison has recently gone on loan to Queens Park Rangers.


Southampton are hoping to be boosted by the return of injured duo Dejan Lovren and Gaston Ramirez, but Jos Hooiveld misses out with an eye injury.
