West Ham United will be hoping they can reignite their top four hopes when they host Southampton in the Premier League on Sunday at 3pm (UK time).
David Moyes’ men once looked comfortable in the top four but their recent record has seen the Hammers slip down to fifth, four points behind fourth-placed Arsenal (albeit with a game in hand). West Ham have lost three of their past six games, drawing two with just one win, which has allowed the teams around them to make things a lot tighter. Southampton, meanwhile, are winless in six Premier League matches, losing three and drawing three. As a result, they currently sit 15th, six points clear of 18th-placed Burnley who do have two games in hand.

West Ham team news
West Ham are looking fairly fresh going into Boxing Day’s game with Vladimir Coufal available once again following suspension, served in the EFL Cup defeat to Tottenham. The right-back should go straight back into the starting XI ahead of Harrison Ashby who deputised as a wing-back. Michail Antonio is a doubt for West Ham due to illness but Moyes is hopeful of having the Jamaican forward back for the weekend. Angelo Ogbonna, Kurt Zouma and Aaron Cresswell are all out, however.
West Ham predicted XI: Fabianski; Coufal, Dawson, Diop, Masuaku; Rice, Soucek; Bowen, Lanzini, Fornals; Yarmolenko.
