Lineups and Discussion: Southampton vs. West Ham
A monstrously attacking lineup from Mauricio Ponchettino’s Southampton sees all three of his strikers start in a very strong 4-3-3.
It was a selection headache for Ponchettino as he had Rickie Lambert, Pablo Osvaldo, and Jay Rodriguez (pictured) to select from for his striker, but instead he just picked all three!
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.
