Andy Gray predicts West Ham United v Southampton

West Ham Championship

West Ham United will take on Southampton in the Premier League this evening.

Former Aston Villa striker Andy Gray has predicted on Paddypower.com that Southampton will win against West Ham United this evening.

West Ham will take on Southampton at the Boleyn Ground in the Premier League.

“It was a terrific win for the Saints over Arsenal,” the former Everton striker has written on Paddypower.com.

“Although West Ham picked up a good point away in their last game I think Villa really dominated the game. How the Hammers got a point from that game I’m not quite sure.

“Southampton will go there fired up with confidence. They’ll make one or two changes to freshen up the side and I’m looking for the Saints to win 1-0.”

West Ham will head into the encounter against Southampton on the back of a 1-1 draw with relegation candidates Aston Villa away from home at Villa Park.

The Hammers have been in poor form for weeks now and are struggling to win matches.

The London outfit are 10th in the Premier League table at the moment with 26 points from 18 matches.

Meanwhile, Southampton current find themselves 12th in the standings with 24 points from 18 games.

Ronald Koeman's side returned to winning ways on Boxing Day when they destroyed title challengers Arsenal 4-0 at St. Mary’s Stadium in the league.

The last three Premier League games between West Ham and Southampton at the Boleyn Ground have produced a total of 13 goals.
