Southampton (#13, 2pts) vs West Ham (#2, 7pts)

Never before have I expected so much from a West Ham side that started with such little faith at the start of last year’s season. Antonio’s rampant goal-scoring form and the Czech powerhouses littered throughout the field has a boy dreaming of Europa League glory. Napoli or Real Sociedad have nothing on the rock that is Craig Dawson. In fairness to Southampton, they have managed to maintain a stable-ish style despite another season of losing key players. Adam Armstrong and James Ward-Prowse are creating a beautiful partnership in Hasenhutti’s preferred attacking approach. Zouma may finally take some pressure off Ogbonna’s ancient shoulders, however.

Prediction: 1-2

Continuing on from above, Southampton battled to rescue an important point at Newcastle whilst tying up their influential captain to a new deal. Good stuff on the South Coast. West Ham meanwhile remain unbeaten albeit not banishing their Palace demons at home. With some extra ammunition in the transfer market and a break for most of their players (bar Rice), this looks like a good opportunity to get back on the winning train.

Prediction: 1-3

Key game for the Hammers to re-establish their top 6 credentials after letting the lead slip twice against a Palace side who had drawn blanks to that point. Southampton have drawn their last two which is encouraging but I am not sure what (quality) depth they really have in the squad and I think they will struggle. I’m backing the Moyessiah to get another performance out of the Hammers and Antonio to continue his fine form.

Prediction: 1-3
