West Ham United welcome Southampton to the London Stadium on Sunday for the final Premier League match of the 2020/21 campaign.

The Hammers come into the match undefeated in the last 6 matches in this head-to-head. This includes a run of 3-straight wins at the London Stadium, putting 3 past the Saints in each match in the process.

Overall, these sides share a very even record in this head-to-head with 27 wins to West Ham versus 26 for the Saints. However, home advantage plays a key role, particularly during the Premier League era, where the Hammers have 13 wins to Southampton’s 4 in London.

West Ham United vs Southampton: Recommended bets

West Ham beat Southampton 3-1 here last season. A repeat of this score on Sunday is available at odds of 12/1.

Southampton’s last win at the London Stadium was back in September 2016. You can back them at 50/1 for the same 0-3 scoreline here on Sunday.

The reverse fixture this season finished 0-0 in Southampton. Odds of 14/1 can be found for another bore draw here.

West Ham vs Southampton in London has historically been a high scoring game. You need to go back to the 1-1 draw in the Championship back in 2012 to find the last under 2.5 goals game. You can back another high scoring game here on Sunday with odds of 4/7 on for over 2.5 goals.

Jesse Lingard has been a revelation since signing on loan for the Hammers in January. He has 9 goals and 4 assists in 15 Premier League starts for West Ham. The 28-year-old is the 10/3 favourite to score the game’s opener on Sunday. Or you can back Lingard at 5/6 on to bag a goal at any time during the game against Southampton.

West Ham United vs Southampton: What are the betting odds?

West Ham are looking to make it 4 home wins in a row against the Saints on Sunday. They have lost their last 2 home matches in the Premier League though; their first back-to-back home defeats this season. Odds of 13/20 are available for them to come out on top on Sunday.

Away wins are rare in this fixture, with Southampton having just 4 wins in 18 Premier League visits here. Their recent away form has been abysmal too, with 9 defeats in their last 10 away matches. They are the 4/1 underdogs to come out on top here.

There has been just 1 draw in 18 matches in London between these sides in the Premier League. However, they played out a 0-0 draw in Southampton earlier this season. Odds of 3/1 are available if you see West Ham and Southampton cancelling each other out on Sunday.

West Ham United vs Southampton: Match preview

While the Champions League dream is dead for the Hammers, this match is still crucial in ensuring they at least make the Europa League next season.

With FA Cup winners Leicester City guaranteed to finish in the top 5, the Europa League spot for finishing 5th in the Premier League moves to 6th; the position West Ham start the day in.

West Ham need only a point to wrap up Europa League football for the 2021/22 campaign. However, a defeat here coupled with a Spurs victory at Leicester would see Tottenham leapfrog the Hammers.

Everton could also finish level on points with West Ham. Although, even if Manchester City put out their youth team, it is unlikely we would see West Ham’s current +8 goal difference advantage swing in Everton’s favour.

Southampton, on the other hand, have nothing to play for in terms of European football nor avoiding relegation. However, Ralph Hasenhüttl may feel he still has a lot to prove after a poor display in the second half of this campaign. No side has picked up fewer points in 2021 than Southampton’s 17.

In addition, with the Premier League awarding approximately two million pounds per league position, the difference between finishing as high as 12th or as low as 16th could give the club an £8m boost in their share of the Premier League’s prize money.

Southampton have found some form recently, after a poor start to 2021. This, coupled with West Ham’s inconsistency lately, suggests the sides could cancel each other out at the weekend.

West Ham United team news vs Southampton

Lukasz Fabianski suffered a knee injury ruling him out of the 1-3 win at the Baggies. There appears to be some uncertainty over his availability at the weekend.

“He went down to his right side and felt his knee go from under him a little bit. I don’t know what he has done, if it is bad, or not, we have no idea.”
– David Moyes, West Ham United Manager

Darren Randolph made his first appearance at the weekend since the 2-1 defeat at Manchester City at the end of February. With questions marks remaining over the availability of Fabianski, Randolph is expected to continue in goal.

Manuel Lanzini has missed the last two matches with a suspected groin strain. There is a chance he may be available for the weekend.

Arthur Masuaku is also struggling with the knee injury that has caused him to miss the last 6 matches. Aaron Cresswell will continue at left-back in his absence.

Southampton team news vs West Ham United

William Smallbone is ruled out for the rest of the season with an ACL injury. He likely won’t make a return to the pitch until October.

Sam McQueen remains on the long-term injury list having suffered a cruciate ligament injury before the season commenced.

Oriol Romeu was expected to be out for the rest of the season due to a fractured ankle. However, Ralph Hasenhüttl confirmed he has been training hard to be involved in the final game of the season. He should only be expected to be available from the bench, at most.

Ryan Bertrand has been out since mid-April due to a knock sustained at the Baggies. Bertrand isn’t expected to be involved here, with Mohammed Salisu continuing at left-back.

Che Adams only managed half the match against Leeds due to a groin problem. It is unlikely he is risked here with little on the line for Southampton.

Danny Ings was rested for the 2-0 defeat against Leeds, coming on at half-time for Adams. He is expected to start the final game of the season, likely replacing the injured Adams.

Nathan Redmond was also rested for the Leeds match. He is expected to regain his place from Moussa Djenepo.
