West Ham vs Southampton match stats

No other sides have kept fewer clean sheets in the Premier League this season than Southampton (4) and West Ham (5). For the Hammers, five clean sheets is their fewest at this stage of a top-flight season since 2018-19 under Manuel Pellegrini (4), while it is the lowest tally by a David Moyes side in their first 26 matches of a Premier League campaign since Sunderland in 2016-17 (4).

Since losing three straight home league games from November to December, West Ham is unbeaten in their last four at the London Stadium (two wins and two draws). Not since April 2022 have the Hammers gone longer without a home defeat in the Premier League (six games).

Sides starting the day bottom of the Premier League have won 11 league matches this season, four more than the whole of last term (seven), and the most in a single campaign in the competition since 2017/18 (12). Southampton has been responsible for three of these victories by bottom-placed sides in 2022/23, a joint-high (also Leicester).

Southampton has picked up as many points in their six Premier League games under Rubén Sellés (eight – two wins, two draws and two losses) as they had in their 17 league matches beforehand (two wins, two draws and 13 losses).

West Ham has lost just one of their last 10 Premier League games against Southampton, though that was a 3-2 defeat in this exact fixture last season. Southampton is consequently looking to win consecutive league visits to West Ham for the first time since April 1992 – they’d lost four in a row at the Hammers before last season’s 3-2 victory.
