West Ham vs. Southampton Team News:

Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl has a couple of injury scares ahead of Saints’ visit to West Ham on Saturday.

Key defenders Jannik Vestergaard and Maya Yoshida are set to miss out with injury, which means the Austrian manager is stuck with the same defensive options which shipped three goals last week against AFC Bournemouth.

However, Mario Lemina and Stuart Armstrong are said to be fit. Lemina has been absent for a long time with an abdominal injury and could start against West Ham.

West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini has had his injury woes ease in the past week.

Samir Nasri is apparently set to return after missing the last five games with a calf injury.

Meanwhile, Manuel Lanzini and Aaron Cresswell are also said to be fit to feature against Saints this weekend. Carlos Sanchez could also return to the first team, having been out with a knee injury.
