The Premier League continues on Sunday, where the early kick off sees West Ham United take on Southampton at the London Stadium. We’ve provided a preview, as well as a couple of suggested best bets.
West Ham vs Southampton Tips
This is a proper relegation six pointer, between a West Ham (8/11) side sat in 18th and Southampton (18/5), who are rock bottom of the Premier League.
Neither side are in particularly good form, with the Hammers winning just one of their last six and Saints picking up two useful draws against Manchester United and Spurs, either side of losing to Brentford.
Both teams need to start winning and quickly, with only around a dozen games left, or they will suffer their first relegations out of the Premier League for years.
David Moyes is sweating on the fitness of Lukasz Fabianski and Michail Antonio, who are both injury doubts for the Hammers.
Tino Livramento, Juan Larios and Armel Bella-Kotchap are confirmed absentees for the Saints, whilst Che Adams was injured on international duty and will need to be assessed.
West Ham to win – 8/11
Saints pulled off a massive comeback against Spurs in their last game but they are winless in three and their new manager bounce is definitely waning.
David Moyes men will be buoyed by the good results in the Europa Conference League and seem to have a bit of their mojo back.
I’m taking them to win this one fairly comfortably.
Danny Ings to score first – 9/2
Ex-Saints frontman Danny Ings could be the thorn in Southampton’s side on Sunday.
Ings has eight goals for the season, including two in three starts for the Hammers.
Betfred are also running their famed Double Delight/ Hat-trick Heaven Promotion on this match, meaning should Ings score first and then go on to score a second, you will be paid at double the odds (9/1). Should he score a 3rd, you would be paid at triple the odds (27/2).
