Southampton v West Ham betting tips – Saints 6/5 for hat-trick of wins

Posted on: 26th December 2018

Ralph Hasenhuttl has only taken charge of Southampton for three matches although his popularity has already soared, meaning that he’s been the biggest managerial hit at St Mary’s since Mauricio Pochettino.

The Austrian will be confident that his team can claim a third consecutive win which would surely mean that relegation fears will be consigned to the dustbin as a New Year is ushered in.

It’s not as though Hasenhuttl has been able to exploit the transfer market although he’s squeezing far more juice out of his players than predecessor Mark Hughes, with the team beating Arsenal and Huddersfield.

On both occasions the Saints scored three times and we should expect more goals on Thursday night, although West Ham are nine points better off and we should note that they have won four of their previous five matches.

A winning run came to an end against Watford recently, although previous successes over Newcastle, Cardiff, Palace and Fulham suggest that they have players who can do damage and we should see an open match between these two sides.

William Hill have 8/11 about Over 2.5 Goals being scored and this is something that has happened in four of the past six matches involving West Ham, while Southampton are likely to continue their attack-minded ways.
