Southampton vs West Ham United Match Preview
Manuel Pellegrini dug out a vital win at Chelsea just when he needed one a fortnight ago – and is backed to do the same against Southampton to keep himself in a job.
After several of his Premier League counterparts exited their clubs recently, Pellegrini is now long odds-on favourite to be the next to follow them after a run of eight defeats in 11 matches that has left his West Ham United team just above the relegation zone.
The latest setback was a 3-1 home loss to Arsenal on Monday when the Hammers led at half-time and the general consensus seems to be that if they are beaten again at Southampton, the manager will be on his way.
After this game there is certainly time for the West Ham board to make a decision because they do not play next weekend as their scheduled opponents Liverpool are at the FIFA Club World Cup, so there is a 12-day gap until the short Boxing Day trip to Crystal Palace.
West Ham remain capable on their day, however, for it’s only two weeks since they won 1-0 at Chelsea and so they should not fear going to Southampton, even though the Saints have triumphed 2-1 in their last two home games against fellow strugglers Watford and Norwich.
Southampton would climb above the Hammers if they made it three in a row at St Mary’s, but it is time for Pellegrini to start showing the leadership that made him a Premier League title-winning manager at Manchester City and his side may just be the value bet here.
