West Ham is in a serious crisis, since winning against Bournemouth on New Year's Day, "Sledgehammer" is going through a period of nearly 2 months without knowing the taste of victory. The round here, with being at home to welcome a Southampton is not really stable. West Ham fans are expecting a good outcome for the pet team, the way they used to play against Southampton in the past.



Despite great efforts and a time to lead Liverpool at Anfield, but in the end West Ham still had to leave with a narrow defeat of 2-3. The results partly show the enormous determination of the Olympic team owner, in the context of the farewell playground of the most prestigious playground in the foggy country. That is because, "Sledgehammer" is struggling in the battle of relegation when only 24 points have been won after 27 rounds and temporarily stand in the red light group with 18th position. In the last 7 matches, they don't know what is the victory smell with 5 defeats and 2 draws, in which the defense is showing great instability when they have conceded 14 goals / 5 matches recently and not even 1 game Go to the net to pick the ball less than 2 times. The attack only recorded 32 women, but the defense has conceded 48 times, which is alarming for West Ham in the rest of the season. The theory is that, but the fact that the safety team is only 1 point less, the chance of relegation is still very bright for West Ham. Of course, to achieve that goal, getting 3 points against rivals like Southampton is essential now.

Southampton have just cut their string of bowls when they easily took down rookie Aston Villa with 2 goals at home. In general, Southampton's form is not really stable when winning 2 and also lost 2 in the last 5 rounds. However, if away only, Southampton have won 4 victories and lost only 1 match against the strong team Liverpool in the last 5 rounds. On the standings at the moment, Southampton has a safe position with 34 points in their hand and is not too worried about the battle for the red light group. It seems that is also one of the reasons why the visitors did not really impressed last time. Prior to this trip, Southampton had reason to worry, because all 4 times against West Ham, they had nothing.
