Everything You Need to Know About Southampton and West Ham United
West Ham United vs. Southampton
Premier League, St Mary's Stadium, 2 p.m. BST, Sunday, October 16, 2022
West Ham United travels to Southampton on Sunday in search of their fifth consecutive victory in all competitions.
The Irons have won twice in the Premier League, at London Stadium, defeating Wolverhampton Wanderers (2-0) and Fulham (3-1) and twice in UEFA Europa Conference League Group B against RSC Anderlecht (1-0 in Brussels and 2-1 in Stratford).
David Moyes' side begins the matchweek 13th in the table, with ten points from nine games played, though they are only one point behind tenth-place Liverpool on goal difference. If Moyes' men win and other results go our way, we could finish the weekend as high as eighth.
Southampton are attempting to re-establish themselves as a top-half Premier League club after finishing above 15th and reaching 50 points only once in the previous four seasons, despite finishing in the top eight in each of the four prior.
The Saints are currently 17th in the table, with seven points from nine games played. Ralph Hasenhüttl's side has lost their last four Premier League games, scoring one goal in each, and have not won since defeating Chelsea 2-1 at St Mary's on August 30.

As with so many football stadiums these days, it is recommended that fans take public transportation rather than driving to the game.
However, South Western Railway was planning engineering work on Sunday 16 October at the time of writing, which means services from London Waterloo will terminate at Eastleigh. It is a 20-minute replacement bus ride to Southampton Central from there. It's a 15-minute walk to St Mary's from there. Waterloo services depart at 09:00. 35, 10 15, 10 35, 10 54 and 11 35
If you prefer, a shuttle bus from Central Station to St Mary's (and back after the game) costs £2 each way.
Buses depart Southampton Central for Eastleigh at 16:30. 34, 16 59 and 17 34
For schedules and tickets, go to the National Rail website.
If you choose to drive to the game, there is no parking in the streets surrounding St Mary's, so you should go to one of the City Council car parks listed below: Bedford Place (postcode SO15 2QW), Grosvenor Square (SO15 2GR), West Park Road (SO15 1AP), Marlands (SO15 1BA). SO14 3HH (Eastgate)

Southampton FC began as St. Mary’s Y M A in 1885 at St Mary's Church, just east of the city center, by members of the Young Men's Association
Initially, the new football club played matches on Southampton Common, a few miles to the north, with larger games held at Hampshire's County Cricket Ground or the Antelope Cricket Ground in St Mary's.
In 1887, the club changed its name to St Mary's FC, then to Southampton St Mary's when it joined the Southern League in 1894, and finally to Southampton FC when it won the title for the first time and became a limited company in 1897.
Southampton FC won the Southern League five more times before relocating to The Dell in 1898, where they stayed for 103 years before moving to the purpose-built St Mary's Stadium in 2001.
Southampton, nicknamed 'The Saints' due to their ecclesiastical origins, joined the newly formed Football League Division Three in 1920, won promotion in their first season, and remained in Division Two until being relegated in 1953.
Southampton enjoyed their first eight-season stay in the top flight after being promoted in 1960 and again in 1966, largely due to the prolific goalscoring exploits of Scottish forward George O'Brien and local lad and future England international Martin Chivers.
The Saints were relegated again in the 1970s, but it was during this four-year stay in the Second Division that the club won its first and only major trophy, defeating Manchester United in the FA Cup in 1976.
That success was achieved under the direction of long-serving manager Lawrie McMenemy, who was in charge for 13 seasons from 1973 to 1985 and later returned as Director of Football in the 1990s.
Southampton had joined the Premier League as a founding member in 1992, with the club's renowned Academy producing a slew of future stars such as Alan Shearer and Matthew Le Tissier.
That tradition has been carried on over the years, with Theo Walcott, Gareth Bale, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Adam Lallana, and current captain James Ward-Prowse all rising through the ranks.
Southampton did drop out of the Premier League in 2005, and even to League One in 2009, but they rebounded with consecutive promotions in 2011 and 2012, and they have remained a Premier League club ever since.
Indeed, Southampton edged out West Ham United for sixth place in the Premier League five years ago, qualifying directly for the UEFA Europa League group stage.
It continued the Saints' upward trajectory after they were promoted automatically ahead of the Hammers in 2012, then finished eighth, seventh, sixth, and eighth in 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017.
Southampton's momentum, however, has slowed since then, with the Hampshire club finishing in the bottom half of the Premier League in each of the previous five seasons.
West Ham United's Premier League unbeaten run against Southampton ended on Boxing Day last season, when Southampton defeated the Hammers 3-2 at London Stadium. Prior to that, the Irons had won six of their previous eight games, with two draws.
The Premier League match at St Mary's last September ended goalless, but West Ham were defeated 3-1 in an FA Cup fifth-round tie in Hampshire in March this year.
Michail Antonio, a former Saints loanee who won the EFL Trophy with Southampton in 2010, scored his first of 58 Premier League goals for West Ham in a 2-1 home win over his former club at the Boleyn Ground in December 2015.
The Hammers' biggest Premier League victory over Southampton came on October 20, 2012, when they won 4-1 at the Boleyn Ground.
West Ham also leads the all-time series against Southampton, having won 19 of the 40 Premier League meetings between the two clubs, with Southampton winning 12 and drawing nine.
The Hammers' all-time victory over the Saints came in October 1913, when the east Londoners won 5-1 in the Southern Division at the Boleyn Ground.
