A monstrously attacking lineup from Mauricio Ponchettino’s Southampton sees all three of his strikers start in a very strong 4-3-3.
West Ham boss Sam Allardyce didn’t have nearly the plethora of attackers Ponchettino had to choose from, and Big Sam decides to stick with the Malian, Modibo Maiga. The 26-year-old has yet to score in the league this season despite playing every minute of West Ham’s three matches so far.
Southampton: Boruc; Clyne, Fonte, Lovern, Shaw; Wanyama, Schneiderlin, Lallana; Rodriguez, Osvaldo, Lambert.
Bench: K. Davis, S. Davis, Ramirez, Ward-Prowse, Guly, Chambers, Hooiveld.
West Ham United: Jaaskelainen; Demel, Collins, Reid, O’Brien; Diame, Noble, Nolan, Jarvis, Morrison; Maiga.
Bench: Adrian, Rat, Tomkins, Collison, Taylor, Lee, Vaz Te.
