West Ham have carried on from where they left off last season as they face Southampton today.

The Hammers, who qualified for the Europa League last term, will be looking to continue their unbeaten start to the campaign on the south coast. David Moyes’s side have started the new campaign with two wins and a draw from three games with Michail Antonio and Said Benrahma in fine form so far.

Southampton are yet to win a game after a summer which saw a number of senior figures leave the club, but have shown signs of hope with their draw against Manchester United.

Southampton vs West Ham prediction

The Hammers have made a flying start to the season and are unbeaten after three games of the new term.

Southampton started with defeat to Everton on the opening day but have settled well with a draw at home to Manchester United and a last minute point taken at Newcastle.

Young signing Tino Livramento has been the standout figure for Saints so far this term, but there are issues up top for Ralph Hasenhuttl. Despite scoring on his debut, Adam Armstrong has a long way to go in order to show he can replace Danny Ings.

West Ham look to have ensured their form from last season has carried over the summer and Michail Antonio is in inspired form.

The Hammers should have too much for Southampton.
