The Southampton vs West Ham live stream is happening now, and it sees a struggling Southampton host the resurgent West Ham at St Mary’s — and you can watch it from anywhere with a VPN.
Southampton will have to put in a performance to get a result on Sunday against a West Ham side who have turned their fortunes around in recent weeks. The Saints would have been delighted with their victory over Chelsea at the end of August but it seems to have been an outlier with Southampton scoring just one goal en route to losing their next four games. Manager Ralph Hassenhutl will celebrate four years as Southampton's manager in December, but if this current form continues and relegation starts to loom then he may not reach that milestone. He has not been helped by long-term injuries to two of the side’s young stars, Tino Livramento and Romeo Lavia, Livramento will likely not be fit until 2023 but Lavia is in contention to return for this fixture.
Conversely, West Ham find themselves picking up steam after a difficult start to the season. The Hammers have won back-to-back league games for the first time this season after struggling to juggle European and domestic football. Italian striker Gianluca Scamacca has at last transferred his excellent European form into the league with goals in both of West Ham’s recent wins. David Moyes received a lot of financial backing from the club’s owners this summer with the headline signing of Lucas Paqueta yet to really bear results, perhaps an unconfident Southampton side can be the first step to changing that.
Although West Ham will be favorites for this game, their midweek match against Anderlecht may be a leveler as David Moyes must choose whether to rotate players or push his first-teamers through the fatigue. It all adds up to a tense game that should be full of action, making the Southampton vs West Ham live stream a must watch.
