Southampton face West Ham in Sunday’s only Premier League fixture, and the Tipster is backing the Saints’ new signing Pablo Osvaldo to score at St Mary’s.

Our man-in-the-know is tipping Southampton to beat West Ham in a low-scoring game, predicting under 2.5 goals on the south coast.

With West Ham set to be without target man Andy Carroll, the Tipster is also predicting Southampton will win to nil.

Osvaldo to score for Southampton v West Ham – 7/4

The 27-year-old is yet to score his first Saints goal following his £15m move from Roma in the summer transfer window. With Rickie Lambert almost certainly to be a tad lethargic after his England exploits, the onus will be on the Italian to provide the home side’s main threat. The Tipster is backing Osvaldo to score at 7/4.

Southampton to beat West Ham – 17/20

West Ham have not won a match at the Saints since November 2000 when the south coast club were still playing at The Dell. Allardyce will be without Carroll, Alou Diarra, Stewart Downing and Joe Cole for the trip. With the Saints almost at full strength, the Tipster is backing Pochettino’s men to register their first home win of the season at 17/20.

Under 2.5 goals in Southampton v West Ham – 8/11

After the excitement of two blockbuster Premier League matches last Sunday, this fixture fails to excite and should be a close-fought encounter. The Hammers secured a 1-1 draw at the Saints last season, and Allardyce’s men are currently winless in their last six away matches. Meanwhile, Southampton’s last six top-flight games have seen less than three goals. Under 2.5 goals is certainly the way to go here at 8/11.

Southampton to win to nil v West Ham – 15/8

West Ham are missing front-line striker Andy Carroll after the summer signing picked up another foot injury. It leaves Sam Allardyce short on forwards. Southampton are unbeaten in their last five matches at St Mary’s. The Tipster is backing Saints to win and keep a clean sheet at 15/8.

The long shot: Southampton to beat West Ham 2-0 – 7/1

As already mentioned, West Ham are very light on the striker front. It’s difficult to see the Hammers causing a relatively reliable Saints rearguard any problems. Mauricio Pochettino’s men are yet to register a win in the league at St Mary’s this season. The Tipster’s long shot is Southampton to beat West Ham 2-0 at 7/1.
