West Ham United Preview – Will the Hammers get back to winning ways?

West Ham United finished sixth last season, securing a place in the UEFA Europa League as a result. The Hammers have progressed to the last 16 of that competition and are currently fifth in the Premier League table.

The Londoners relinquished their spot in the top four after losing to Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium in their last league game. Despite their excellent form this season, they have won just one of their last six in the league, suffering defeats to Wolverhampton Wanderers, Manchester City and Arsenal in the process.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score – No

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1148 GMT, Friday 24 December)

West Ham are unbeaten at the London Stadium in the league since losing to Brentford in early October. They could do with a home victory here.

Southampton Preview – Can the Saints end six-game winless streak?

Ralph Hasenhuttl’s Southampton are one of the Premier League’s most inconsistent teams. They are capable of giving anyone a game on their day, but the Saints have only picked up three wins from their opening 17 league games.

Since claiming back-to-back victories over Watford and Aston Villa, Southampton are winless in six. During that run, the Hampshire outfit have lost against Norwich City, Liverpool and Arsenal, and drawn with Leicester City, Brighton & Hove Albion and Crystal Palace.

Southampton have won just one away league match this season, but they did hold champions Man City to a draw at the Etihad Stadium back in September. Can the Saints leave London on Boxing Day with a positive result in the bag?


West Ham United vs Southampton Betting Advice

West Ham have an excellent recent record over Southampton. The Hammers are unbeaten in the last eight meetings, winning six and drawing two. The Saints last beat the Irons back in August 2017.

When the two met in the reverse Premier League fixture at St Mary’s back in September, the teams drew 0-0.


Key Facts – West Ham United vs Southampton Betting Tip

  • West Ham sit fifth with 28 points to their name
  • Southampton have picked up just three league wins this term
  • The two sides played out a 0-0 draw at St Mary’s in September


With neither side in great form, this is not an easy one to call at the London Stadium. However, with West Ham being at home, we fancy the Hammers to nick a win. It could be worth backing the hosts to win by one goal at the decent price of 11/4.

The popular Pablo Fornals was the hero for West Ham when these two met at the London Stadium last May, scoring two goals in a 3-0 Hammers victory. The Spaniard has scored five times for club and country this term and is available at 3/1 to net anytime on Sunday.
