West Ham will be hoping to give their survival hopes a fighting chance when they look to pick up all three points in their clash against Southampton this weekend.
The Hammers are in real danger of falling into the Championship however, they’ll be hoping to mount a fightback starting with their game against Southampton this Saturday.
Despite West Ham’s stellar effort against Liverpool, it is still Southampton who are the favourites. This shouldn’t come as much of a surprise when you realise that the London outfit are winless in eight games across all competitions.
David Moyes’ men last won a Premier League game on New Years’ Day courtesy of a 4-0 thrashing of Bournemouth. In the seven league games since then, the Hammers have only been able to score seven goals.
Southampton may not be in as much trouble as their opponents however, that doesn’t mean things are exactly going smoothly on the south coast.
After a run of six games without defeat in all competitions Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men then went on a run which included two wins and four defeats in seven games. However, the more concerning stat will no doubt be the fact that they’ve conceded seven goals in their last four games.
Bearing in mind that this fixture does tend to produce quite a high number of goals, our recommendation is to back the both teams to score bet.
That alone doesn’t offer a great price which is why we need to add a result to this bet. West Ham are desperate for points however, they haven’t managed a victory at home since the 1st of January. With that in mind, the recommendation is to back a draw and both teams to score at 3/1.
