Southampton News and Form – Can the Saints earn an important home win?

The Saints will move a couple of points clear of West Ham if they can deliver the home win. That would be a huge lift for them, especially as they had lost their last league outing, a 2-1 reverse at Newcastle. That result hurt the Saints as they had taken the lead in the second half and couldn’t hold on. But they can look to their recent home form at least for some positives ahead of this fixture.

Southampton 2-1 correct score
7/1

Ladbrokes

The Saints have earned back to back home wins, both 2-1 success over Norwich and Watford, the only two teams starting the weekend beneath them in the table. Those are the only two wins that Southampton have earned on home soil this season, however (D1 L5). But those recent results showed that they can deliver against struggling teams. 88% of league games this season at St Mary’s have gone over 2.5 goals. Three of the four wins that the Saints have taken this season have been by a one-goal margin.

West Ham News and Form – Can the slumping Hammers catch a break?

The Hammers have lost back to back league games and it has been a total of six defeats in their last eight league games now (W1 D1). That’s a considerable slump and they could find themselves down in the drop zone at the end of Saturday. If they don’t get three points out of this fixture then in all probability, it will be the last straw for boss Manuel Pellegrini. Out on their travels, this season West Ham have taken a W2 D3 L3 record.

The Hammers have lost three of their last four away games, failing to score in each defeat. That’s four times in their eight away games that West Ham have failed to score this season. The Irons have come up with only the seven goals on their travels this season as well. Just 38% of their away games have made it over 2.5 goals. As a positive for them, they have taken a W1 D2 record from their three away games against sides currently in the bottom side with them.

Southampton vs West Ham Predictions

Southampton to win: The Saints have at least delivered maximum points in their last two home games. They have not been pretty or convincing wins, but that doesn’t matter. The defence of West Ham is there for the taking. Home win.
