Mark Lawrenson states his prediction for Southampton v West Ham

BBC pundit Mark Lawrenson predicts West Ham’s game against Southampton at St Mary’s Stadium.

I don’t think West Ham have helped their manager Manuel Pellegrini with the noises that have been coming out of the club.

Whoever is feeding stories to the media seems to be trying to make everyone aware that Pellegrini’s future is being discussed, because he is not doing very well – so don’t be surprised if he is not here next Sunday.

You don’t need to say any of that, because it is obvious he is under pressure.

It just feels like Pellegrini is an empty tube of toothpaste – they are just squeezing the last bits out of him at the moment, and it won’t be long until he is done.

While West Ham slide down the table, Saints have been heading in the opposite direction with a run of seven points from their past four games.

They were unlucky to lose to Newcastle last time out and they have looked like a different team in recent weeks. Danny Ings cannot stop scoring at the moment, which is handy for them.

Lawrenson’s prediction: 2-1
