West Ham United will clash heads with Southampton at the London Stadium on Sunday afternoon as they try to collect all three points on their travels. The Hammers picked up a 3-1 win over Fulham in the London derby recently, so they will be eager to keep their good form going in league football.

David Moyes will set his side up in a 4-2-3-1 formation and is expected to name a strong first XI for this game. Gianluca Scamacca will get a chance to lead the charge for the East London club once again in the final third.

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

Defence

Łukasz Fabiański will feature in between the sticks for the Hammers after shipping in one goal in his last league outing. Kurt Zouma will function alongside Craig Dawson at the centre of the West Ham defence as they try to keep things solid at the back away at the St. Mary’s Stadium this weekend.

Thilo Kehrer will once again fill in at right-back while Aaron Cresswell looks to put in a hard-working performance as the left-back. Both of them would be eager to get forward and join in on the attack at every chance they get.

Ben Johnson will have to settle for a place on the bench as he provides cover for the defensive spots.

Midfield

Declan Rice will anchor the midfield along with Tomas Soucek as they try to establish their superiority over the Saints in the middle of the park. Both of them would have to find a way to create some inviting chances for their teammates on the attacking third of the field.

The talented trio of Pablo Fornals, Lucas Paqueta and Jarrod Bowen would play just ahead of them as part of Moyes’ attack. All three West Ham attackers would be hungry to put in a good showing collectively throughout the game.

Manuel Lanzini and Said Benrahma will once again find themselves on the West Ham bench but might come on to influence the game in the final quarter of the match if the Hammers are in need of a goal by then.

Attack

Gianluca Scamacca will lead the line for the East London giants in the final third. He got his name on the scoresheet versus Fulham, so his confidence would be quite high when he laces up to face off against the Southampton defenders this weekend.

Michail Antonio is a major doubt for this clash as he continues to recover from his illness.
