Southampton vs West Ham United tips Marc Lawrenson
Like Solskjaer at United, Southampton have undergone a transformation under Ralph Hasenhuttl, who got another win at the weekend when his new side beat Huddersfield. Saints are playing with purpose and scoring goals and when you watch them you are left trying to remember the problems they had under previous boss Mark Hughes. With any new manager, there is nothing better than winning games straight away because you are almost convincing your players instantly that you really do know what you are on about. West Ham's run of four straight wins ended with their defeat by Watford, and I have a feeling they will be reflecting on another loss after this game is over. Source: BBC

The strange thing about West Ham is that they often perform much better away from home than they do at the London Stadium. They have never really taken to the London Stadium, and away from home they are actually unbeaten in the league since the start of October. West Ham have lost just 3 away games this season, avoiding defeat away to Everton, Leicester, Huddersfield, Newcastle, and Fulham. They face a Southampton side who, up until their triumph over Arsenal, were yet to win a home game this season too. The visitors have only lost 2 of their last 6 trips to Southampton.

Ralph Hassenhuttl became an almost instant fan favourite on Saturday as he guided his Southampton team to a 3-1 win away to the desperately poor Huddersfield. This came after their shock 3-2 win against Arsenal the weekend before to lift them into 16th position in the Premier League. The Saints are by no means safe yet though. They are only 3 points above the drop zone and face Manchester City and Chelsea over the next week or so, making this hosting of West Ham a potentially crucial tie for them. West Ham may have been on the wrong end of a 2-0 scoreline against Watford on Saturday, but there is no denying that they are a team in form at the moment. That defeat ended a run of 4 consecutive Premier League wins for The Hammers, who have forced their way up to 12th in the table despite losing their opening 4 matches.
