After the mauling West Ham United received at the hands of Manchester United on the opening weekend of the 2017 / 2018 season, the Hammers support will be looking for some significant improvement this afternoon.

Forced to play another away game courtesy of the London Stadium being used for the World Athletics Championships and still being converted back into a football stadium, the Hammers are on the south coast this afternoon for a tricky fixture against Southampton.

Cheered on by a vociferous travelling support, can the Hammers get something from this fixture?

With the kick-off fast approaching, we now have the team-sheets for you to mull over:

Southampton – Forster, Soares, Bertrand, Yoshida, Stephens, Davis, Tadic, Romeu, Lemina, Gabbiadini, Redmond.

Subs – McCarthy, Long, Austin, Ward-Prowse, Boufal, Bednarek, McQueen.

West Ham – Hart, Reid, Creswell, Fonte, Zabaleta, Rice, Arnautovic, Noble, Antonio, Ayew, Chicharito.

Subs – Adrián, Obiang, Sakho, Ogbonna, Byram, Masuaku, Fernandes.
