Premier League strugglers’ West Ham and Southampton will be hoping to improve their survival prospects for this season when they clash against each other in a Premier League game at the London Stadium.
Both teams are currently in the relegation zone. West Ham are 18th with 24 points after 26 games. Southampton are stone last with 23 points after 28 games. Both teams however are in with a good chance of avoiding the drop this season. Just one point seperates West Ham from 17th place Leicester City while two points seperate Southampton from the Foxes. Either side could move out of the drop zone with a win in this game.
