Our prediction for this Premier League match:
West Ham United will host the 19th round of the English Premier League against Southampton in the Queen Elizabeth Stadium on Wednesday evening 17:30. The Hammers we're able to start this season as one of the surprises and were in the top 5 for a long period of time. After a bad streak the team from London dropped a couple of places but is still in the running for a ticket to the Europa League. Southampton is unable to continue their performance of the last 2 seasons and is placed mid table in the Premier League. Southampton manager Ronald Koeman is having trouble letting his players play the same style as last season. Previous games between both teams show that West Ham United are very equal to each other. We predict a 1-1 tie. The Hammers will have the home advantage but we believe Southampton's team contains more quality.
Highlighted Team (West Ham United):
West Ham United are an English football club based in East London. The club was founded in 1895 and it has to be noted that the club’s name was Thames Ironworks back then. The Hammers were playing their home games at Upton Park from 1904 until 2016, when they moved to the Stadium at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
West Ham have won three FA Cup trophies (1964, 1975 and 1980) and they were runners-up in 1923 and 2006. The capital club finished the 1985/1986 England first division campaign in third place in the standings and that is the club’s highest placing in the top flight. West Ham United have strong rivalries with fellow London clubs, but Tottenham Hotspur are considered the club’s main rivals.
A number of top-class players were part of West Ham in the past and the likes of Joe Cole, Carlos Tevez, Paolo Di Canio, Paul Ince, Julian Dicks, Shaka Hislop, Michael Carrick and Slaven Bilic are some of them.
