A rabona pass on a break which released Antonio, but a great save from McCarthy denied the Hammers' fourth, and one of the best assists of the season!
17:224 months ago

56' Jeremy Ngakia was caught sleeping but Bowen was there to clear the ball from Ryan Bertrand's feet.

GOAL!: West Ham United 3-1 Southampton FC

And that should be the game wrapped up.

Fantastic assist from Pablo Fornals to feed Michail Antonio who finished around McCarthy. Great flick-on from Haller to find Fornals and start the attack.

Just before the goal, Southampton made a substitution - Danny Ings for Sofiane Boufal.

THERE HE IS! SEBASTIEN HALLER WITH THE GOAL!

Great pass from Fornals, Haller got the initial flick-on, Antonio with a cross, an awful error from Alex McCarthy and the Frenchman scored his seventh goal of the season.
16:424 months ago

CHANCE!

So close from the Hammers! Diop could've scored his second goal in two games, but his header hit Ward-Prowse and gone out of play.

But no corner was given.
16:404 months ago

GOAL!: West Ham United 1-1 Southampton FC

West Ham had a chance to make it 2-0, but a great counter from the Saints ended with an equaliser from Michael Obafemi.

Poor from Hammers' midfield who were too slow to pick up the youngster, but a great finish nonetheless.
16:334 months ago

27' Free-kick from deep for Southampton, but Issa Diop headed it away for a corner, which was also dealt with by the Hammers.

 
16:304 months ago

24' Haller flicked the ball to Antonio who nearly went past Bednarek, but the defender managed to keep up and eventually clear.
16:264 months ago

CHANCE!

Brilliant run from Antonio and an even better cross which missed two Southampton defenders and fallen straight at the head of Sebastien Haller, but he couldn't manage to steer it into the back of the net.
16:214 months ago

GOAL!: West Ham United 1-0 Southampton FC

Centurion

Today's game marks Declan Rice's 100th game for the club.

An astonishing achievement for the 21-year-old.
15:174 months ago

Prior to the kick-off, West Ham fans have organised a protest against David Sullivan, David Gold and Karren Brady, the current ownership of the club because they've been feeling lied to and mistreated years on years since their current reign started 10 years ago.

One I'm personally on board with.

Talking team news

David Moyes decided to put out a very strong lineup with Pablo Fornals, Sebastien Haller and Jarrod Bowen replacing Robert Snodgrass, Felipe Anderson and Tomas Soucek, who suffered a low tier muscle injury against Liverpool FC. A very attacking set-up which should unleash all the attacking power West Ham currently have.

Contrary, Ralph Hassenhuttl's staring XI is a weird one, with James Ward-Prowse presumably starting as a right-back (despite loanee Kyle Walker-Peters and Yan Valery being on the bench and available), Danny Ings dropped to the bench and a young midfielder, Will Smallbone, starting in the middle of the park.
15:114 months ago

Southampton FC: Starting XI

McCarthy; Ward-Prowse, Stephens, Bednarek, Bertrand; Armstrong, Smallbone, Hojbjerg, Boufal; Long, Obafemi.
15:044 months ago

West Ham United: Starting XI

Fabiański; Ngakia, Diop, Ogbonna, Cresswell; Rice, Noble; Bowen, Fornals, Antonio; Haller.
15:014 months ago

Just an hour until the starting XI's will be announced, stay tuned.

That’s all for now, but make sure you check back an hour or so before kick-off for the full team news…

Last time out

In the previous game between the two, Sebastien Haller netted one back in December to give the Hammers the win.

Hassenhutl on Saturday's tie

Southampton boss Ralph Hassenhutl's side have not picked up a win in their past ten games against the Irons, and he explained what he thought the problems were this week.

“At home we had very tight games and there was once where we made two big mistakes and went two down.

“I think we are really keen to show a better performance because we have to.

“I think this opponent so far is not the best we have played against but, as always, records are there to be broken.

“For us, it’s important to go there with all the self-confidence we created to show a different face.”

18:194 months ago

West Ham United captain Mark Noble told whufc.com this week about how he wants the Irons to look back to their escape of 2007 in their aim to stay up this year

“People have been reminding me of our Great Escape of 2007 and how the Liverpool game can act as a springboard, like our game against Spurs did all those years ago,” Noble wrote in the column for the Official Programme for Saturday’s visit of Southampton to London Stadium.

“We are in nowhere near as bad a position this time around, but I know what they mean. In 2007, we won all but two of our remaining nine games and there is no reason why we can’t do something similar this season. If we do, we’ll have nothing to worry about!

“I have always said that winning matches is the bottom line and that is true, more than ever, as we look to climb the table over the final quarter of the season.

Player to watch

After making his first two appearances against Liverpool FC, the Hammers 19-year-old right-back Jeremy Ngakia is quickly starting to steal the headlines and will most likely keep both Pablo Zabaleta and Ryan Fredericks out of the starting XI for the reminder of the season. The pacey wing-back has been deemed to become a "top player" in his position by those close to him, and we will be keeping a close eye on his development.

Previous meeting

In the team's first meeting of the season which took place in December, Sebastien Haller secured all three points for West Ham with a smart left-footed finish as the Hammers finally broke their patch of poor form.

History favours the Hammers

Since West Ham's move to the London Stadium, the Saints won only two games against the Hammers out of six meetings, with their last win coming in August 2017 at St' Mary's.
