is Ham hosts Southampton at London Stadium on Boxing Day, looking to revive their bid for a top-four spot.
The Hammers have been winless since defeating Chelsea on December 4 and lost to Tottenham in the Carabao Cup midweek.
Looking at the results of West Ham and Southampton’s last six league games each, the two teams have managed eight combined points out of a possible 36.
It would be fair to say that neither go into Boxing Day shock with great confidence. West Ham are struggling to stay in the top four after their poor run, with problems in front of goal being David Moyes’ main concern in recent weeks – the January window will surely see the club looking to strengthen in the forward areas.
Southampton have improved somewhat in attack, but there are still only four teams in the league that have scored fewer goals than Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men this season.
Kick-off date, time and location
West Ham vs Southampton is scheduled to kick off at 3 p.m. GMT on Sunday, December 26, 2021.
It will take place at the London Stadium.
Where to watch West Ham vs. Southampton

West Ham vs Southampton Prediction
Both teams have been far from their best in recent weeks, and Moyes will be particularly worried if Antonio is absent.
The Hammers have won just one of their last six league games, a streak that took them out of fourth place in the standings. Their attacking problems could be visible again, even against a Southampton side that concede many goals.
