West Ham XI vs Southampton: Latest team news, predicted lineup and confirmed injuries

GIUSEPPE MURO

Jarrod Bowen could make his maiden West Ham start in their meeting with Southampton today.

The £22million January signing has so far made substitute appearances against Manchester City and Liverpool, but David Moyes could name him in the starting XI at London Stadium this afternoon.

Moyes will weigh up whether to stick with Jeremy Ngakia at right-back after his impressive display against Liverpool at Anfield on Monday.

Defender Ryan Fredericks is out for six weeks with a shoulder injury so Moyes must choose between Ngakia or veteran Pablo Zabaleta to deputise.

Czech international Tomas Soucek is out with the hip injury he suffered against Liverpool, so there will be a reshuffle in midfield.

Pablo Fornals could come in after scoring off the bench on Monday night, while Michail Antonio is set to lead the line again ahead of Sebastien Haller.

Goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski will be looking to make up for his blunder against Liverpool and is set to start in goal for the Hammers.

West Ham predicted XI (4-2-3-1): Fabianski; Ngakia, Ogbonna, Diop, Cresswell; Noble, Rice; Snodgrass, Fornals, Bowen; Antonio
