SOU vs WHU Dream11: Southampton play host to West Ham United in a crunch Premier League game this weekend at St. Mary's Stadium. Both the teams are embroiled in the relegation battle, and it's not an exaggeration to say that this game is a six-pointer, and both teams can really do with a win, especially the Hammers who have been an absolute disaster in the past couple of months. No wonder Manuel Pellegrini's job is under serious threat and if his team fails to get the win, the two-time Premier League winning manager may not be in the West Ham dugout for the next game.
Visitors: West Ham United
Competition: Premier League
Match Venue: St. Mary's Stadium
Match Timing: Saturday, December 14, @11:00 PM
Dream11 Football Prediction – Odds checker:
Other than the unthinkable 0-1 win West Ham managed at Stamford Bridge against Chelsea, they have been a pile of utter rubbish in the last 10 games, losing 7 times and drawing twice. They also come into this game on the back of two straight defeats.
Southampton, on the other hand, picked up two wins in the last three games, and that's why they are being seen as favourites in this game.
Southampton to win: 1.90 (9/10), Probability to happen: 52.63%
West Ham United to win: 3.80 (14/5), Probability to happen: 26.32%
Draw: 3.80 (14/5), Probability to happen: 26.32%
So what should be your Dream11 combo:
Pick more attacking players from Southampton. Danny Ings is in red hot form and should be the captain in your most teams, while the likes of Shane Long, Nathan Redmond, James Ward-Prowse, and Pierre-Emile Hojberg are good options to have.
From West Ham, Marc Noble and Robert Snodgrass have been the most consistent and effective. Pick the duo, as well as, Felipe Anderson.
