Southampton vs West Ham live! Score, updates, how to watch, stream

Southampton host West Ham at St Mary’s Stadium on Sunday and it’s a mighty game for the Saints and their manager Ralph Hasenhuttl.


The Austria head coach has seen the Saints lose six of their first nine games this season and after their terrible streak of just three wins in their last 21 Premier League games from last season appears to be on loan as the new ownership group are willing to change something. The result of that game against West Ham and a south coast derby against Bournemouth on Wednesday will likely determine Hasenhuttl’s future.

As for the Hammers, David Moyes’ side are looking like themselves again as they beat Fulham 3-1 last weekend to claim back-to-back victories. After a slow start with many new players settling in, the likes of Gianluca Scamacca and Lucas Paqueta have found their feet and West Ham appear set for at least another top 10 finish and the UEFA Europa Conference League trophy to win .

Important storylines

Hasenhuttl is under massive pressure as he approaches four years at Southampton but they have lost four en route to this game. His team no longer looks like the high-pressing, energetic team that often made life difficult for opponents. After a summer of buying talented youngsters with a clear hiring philosophy (newly appointed head of hiring Joe Shields could move to Chelsea), things haven’t quite worked out so far. However, the Saints have played four of the top four teams in their first nine games of the season. Recent one-goal defeats to Aston Villa, Wolves and Everton underscored their lack of penetrating power in the last third as Che Adams struggled and captain James Ward-Prowse had a very poor start to the season.

As for West Ham, Scamacca, Jarrod Bowen and Paqueta have all tackled in recent games and West Ham have 10 points and are three points ahead of Saints ahead of this clash. However, Southampton were unbeaten in three games against West Ham in all competitions last season (W2 D1) and appear to have their No.

In-form players to watch

Saints’ Joe Aribo continues to look like a good signing as the attacking midfielder does his best to put them on the front foot in games. Also new signing Armel Bella-Kotchap, 20, looks like a great addition in central defence. West Ham’s forward duo of Scamacca and Bowen form a good partnership while Michail Antonio is also expertly rotated into the forward line. This West Ham squad looks pretty deep and Paqueta had added real quality in the last third.
