West Ham United v Southampton: match preview

After scoring the first away goal and inflicting Tottenham’s first defeat at their new stadium, can West Ham conjure another impressive performance? The stats are not in their favour as they have won two games in succession only once this season. They also face a Southampton side who have recently put pressure on Liverpool and Manchester United, going ahead in both games but then failing to make it stick. Ralph Hasenhüttl has turned them around since taking over from Mark Hughes, praising the club saying they “worked very hard to stay in the league”. Zoe Burgess
