West Ham vs Southampton
SUN 23 MAY 2021 – KO 16:00
BETTING & MATCH PREDICTION
On Sunday, West Ham and Southampton go head-to-head at the London Stadium, in what is a huge game in the race for the Europa Leauge spots.
The Hammers keep defying expectations, as their run of good form keeps going. They beat West Brom 3-1 in their last game, despite going 1-0 down early on.
A place in Europe would be a huge achievement for West Ham. Last season they finished 16th in the table and this year is a big improvement. Currently, they are 6th and as long as they don’t lose this game, they will finish there.
Against Southampton, it is going to be West Ham’s tough game. The hosts though will fancy their chances. Their attack is full of lots of pace and creativity which should be able to break down Southampton’s poor defence.
The Saints are in mixed form of late with two wins in their last five games. They lost 2-0 to Leeds in midweek, which was disappointing coming in off the back of two wins.
Southampton are currently 14th in the table and can finish anywhere from 12th to 16th depending on how Sunday goes. It’s been a disappointing season for them and they will want to finish it on a positive note.
On paper, West Ham should be winning this game, but Southampton are unpredictable this year. They are capable of big performances and will feel like they are can beat the visitors but they will need to be at their very best on Sunday!
West Ham look set to be without Fabianksi and Lanzini. Masuaku is a doubt
Adams, Bertrand and Smallbone are all out injured. Romeu has an ankle injury so is doubtful.
