West Ham seem to have caught up with a slump in the game, and the team began to sink in the standings. So in the last round there was a well-deserved loss in the derby from Arsenal (2-0). Moyes is squeezing the maximum out of the existing roster, but here it is important that no one of the key players falls out of the roster. West Ham cannot boast of a strong defense, they have conceded 21 goals. We conceded 12 goals in 8 home rounds played and played with zero in just one game. Here, of course, the injuries of the defenders (Zuma and Ogbonn) affect, as well as some other players in question.
Southampton is still closer to the red zone. However, the “Saints” should not be underestimated, the team is quite capable of taking away points or at least scoring. It should be borne in mind that in the 9 away rounds played, they scored in 6 cases. Only the leaders who were in great shape (Liverpool, Manchester City and Arsenal) did not score. There are no particular problems with the composition of the guests.
As a result, we have a match of enough attacking teams, but with not the most reliable defense, and in the case of West Ham, also with player passes. Taking into account the current form, line-ups and capabilities, the guests are quite capable of printing the gate of Londoners, and perhaps more than once.
