West Ham United lost their last game in the English Premier League so they are determined to make up for it against Southampton on Sunday.

The Hammers suffered a 2-0 defeat to Arsenal on Wednesday and are currently ranked fifth in the league with 28 points from 17 games.

West Ham are coming off a 2-1 loss to Tottenham in the EPL Cup (Carabao Cup) quarter-finals. Only Jarrod Bowen scored for David Moyes' side as they bid their title hopes goodbye.

Kurt Zouma, Angelo Ogbonna and Aaron Cresswell have injuries and they will not feature in this game. Michail Antonio is not sure after he tested positive for Covid-19. Vladimir Coufal will return after he was suspended in their last game.

Southampton recorded a 2-2 draw at Crystal Palace in their last game. James Ward-Prowse and Armando Broja scored in a row but it wasn't enough for them to get the win at Selhurst Park.

This is Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side’s third draw in their last four games and they are currently in 15th place with 17 points from 17 games. Southampton failed to win in their last six games.

Fraser Forster, Adam Armstrong and Alex McCarthy will not play for the Saints here. Che Adams and Stuart Armstrong are expected to return in this contest.

The first encounter between West Ham and Southampton this season ended in a 0-0 draw.
