Going down 4-0 to Man City is in itself not a problem but when it is a fourth successive defeat and the fifth in the last six then the pressure is on. Southampton ended the season poorly and have started this one off form sitting in 17th spot.
At home, the Saints have managed just one win this season (which came against Chelsea) and lost their most recent to Everton. Each of the last two and five of the last six played at this ground in the Premier League have seen both teams net.
West Ham are in Europa Conference League action on Thursday night when they face Anderlecht, but in the Premier League they defeated Fulham 3-1 last time out. That result made it back-to-back league victories for the London side.
On the road, the Hammers have lost their last two and eight of their last ten which is a problem area that needs adressing. Michail Antonio has three in his last six on the road while Gianluca Scamacca has two in two at all grounds.

Southampton vs West Ham: Match Stats
Siding with West Ham in some way is the recommendation given the respective form and confidence of these sides. Southampton have lost four straight and faith in the manager seems to have been lost while West Ham have won back-to-back games.
This Saints defence that has not kept a Premier League clean sheet since April 16th and have shipped six goals in their last two games. Siding with Hammers players to do well looks the best angle of attack here given they have five in their last two league fixtures. Take Gianluca Scamacca to continue his recent scoring run while Lucas Paqueta to have 3+ shots makes sense given his four against Fulham.
