West Ham United Starting XI Prediction vs Southampton FC

Share

West Ham United hosts Southampton FC on Championship Sunday in a match that will see the Hammers focusing on trying to clinch Europa League qualification.

A result against the lower table south coast club means that the Irons can avoid Europa Conference League and go to the second tier continental competition instead of the third tier tourney. That’s a huge win considering where they finished last season, when manager David Moyes was just happy to keep his side up in the Premiership.

For this one, expect Moyes to go field his strongest team possible and for Saints to do the same. It’s Championship Sunday, so that means you got to leave it all out on the pitch.

This fixture is one that is flying under the radar a bit, and might end up more exciting that most might expect on Sunday.
