Boost for Hammers ahead of Saints clash


West Ham may will be boosted by the news that Southampton have been a dealt a possible blow via injury to a key player – Che Adams.

Saints are sitting rock sit bottom but the appointment of Ruben Selles has given the team a new lease of life.

Since the sacking of Nathan Jones. the south coast side have hit a run of far better form taking points off Chelsea, Manchester United and Tottenham .

It’s a huge game and were they to lift three points they could even go above us although the Hammers¬† are now unbeaten in our last four Premier League games at the London Stadium

Although Saints will travel with optimism, the absence of Adams – forced off in an international against Cyprus last week – would be a big blow and he has now been forced to pull out of the Scotland squad for their upcoming game against Spain as the club assess the damage.
