The Hammers resume what has been a testing Premier League campaign, following the most recent international break, with a home fixture against Southampton.

With both clubs looking nervously over their shoulders at that relegation trap-door, this fixture is of huge importance for both sides.

Ahead of the clash, at the London Stadium, we`ve cobbled together some early team-news.

Starting with West Ham United

David Moyes still has an array of first-team squad members unavailable through injury with – Andy Carroll, Sam Byram, Winston Reid and Pedro Obiang – all still on the treatment table.

The Hammers boss will be hoping that Manuel Lanzini, who picked up a knock whilst representing Argentina, will be fit enough to be selected.

On a positive note, Arthur Masuaku is, once again, available for selection after completing a six-game ban receive for a spitting offence committed during the FA Cup tie away to Wigan.

Continuing with our visitors Southampton:

Mark Hughes, now in charge of the Saints, could welcome back two players who have been absent for several matches.

Their striker, Charlie Austin, has recovered from a hamstring injury that has seen him side-lined for three months, whilst their midfielder, Steven Davis, has also recovered from a hamstring problem that has seen him miss the last five games.

In midweek, Ryan Bertrand withdrew from the England squad with a hamstring problem but is expected to be available for selection.
