West Ham United will lock horns with Southampton at St. Mary’s Stadium on Saturday afternoon as they look to keep their good form going by picking up a positive result at the south coast of England. The Hammers were held to a frustrating 2-2 draw by Crystal Palace last month, so they will be eager to return to winning ways versus the Saints this weekend.

David Moyes could stick with his preferred 4-2-3-1 formation and is expected to name an unchanged team for this game. Michail Antonio will lead the charge for the East London club once again after banging in four goals in three league matches so far.

4-2-3-1 West Ham United Predicted Lineup To Face Southampton

Defence

Łukasz Fabiański will operate in goal for the Hammers after shipping in two goals against the Eagles before the international break. Angelo Ogbonna will probably resume his centre-back partnership with Craig Dawson as they try to stop the Saints from finding the back of the net during the 90 minutes.

Vladimír Coufal will be a nailed-on starter at right-back while Aaron Cresswell hopes to give a good account of himself on the other side as the left-back. Moyes will give both his full-backs the license to get forward and deliver some decent crosses into the Southampton penalty area.

Issa Diop will have to be content with a place on the Hammers bench as he provides cover for the defensive positions.

Midfield

Declan Rice and Tomas Soucek will fill in as the holding midfielders for West Ham. Moyes will ask them to dominate the ball and set up some clear-cut chances for the front players. The talented trio of Jarrod Bowen, Pablo Fornals and Said Benrahma will play just ahead of them as part of Moyes’ attack. Fornals got his name on the scoresheet in his last league appearance, so he will be full of confidence ahead of this clash on the road.

Andriy Yarmolenko and Mark Noble will be available for selection on the bench but could come on to make an impact in the second half if needed.

Attack

As mentioned earlier, Michail Antonio will once again act as the focal point of the West Ham attack. He has begun this campaign on fire after scoring in each of West Ham’s three matches this season. The Jamaica international will carry most of the goal-scoring workload for the Hammers in this game.
