Southampton vs West Brom LIVE: Team news, line-ups and more ahead of Premier League fixture today


Follow the latest updates live from the Premier League clash between Southampton and West Bromwich Albion on a busy day of top-flight action.

With six games scheduled for Sunday, the action begins with two early kick-offs at midday as Southampton host West Brom, while further north Leicester entertain West Ham at the King Power Stadium. Attentions on the south coast focus very much on pulling away from the relegation battle, with Saints sitting precariously in 15th with only three points from three games, two better than the Baggies who continue to search for their first victory since returning to the Premier League.

Southampton finally hit their stride last time out by beating Burnley and will want to carry that momentum into this encounter, while West Brom will have been pleased with their performance in the dramatic 3-3 draw with Chelsea, even if they did blow a three-goal lead, but their winless run will be of cause for concern. Follow the live action below.

Slaven Bilic gives 22-year-old, Kyle Edwards, a first Premier League start for West Brom today. What kind of impact will he have? 

Southampton vs West Brom

Southampton have won their last three league meetings with West Brom and will equal their longest ever Premier League winning streak against a particular opponent should they win.

West Brom have beaten the Saints only twice in their past 11 contests in league and cup with tow draws and seven losses.

But, the away side has won four of the last five meetings between the clubs in all competitions so there is a glimmer of hope for Slaven Bilic’s men.

Leicester vs West Ham

It’s been two weeks since West Ham manager, David Moyes, as well as Issa Diop and Josh Cullen tested positive for Covid-19. 

Moyes is still isolating but has sent a message to the West Ham fans thanking them for their support and he gave this update on his well-being. He wrote:

“I had hoped to be back with the squad for today’s fixture but I’m not quite ready to return just yet.

“I’m feeling generally fine but I have had some mild symptoms so we are taking it day by day and following the advice of the medical experts, with the health and safety of everyone without doubt the most important thing of all.”

Leicester vs West Ham

20 mins to go until kick off, warm ups well underway.

Leicester vs West Ham

Michail Antonio has scored all of West Ham’s last six Premier League goals away from home, including four at Norwich in July.

He will become the first player to score in five consecutive top-flight away games for West Ham since Mike Small in 1991. 

Southampton vs West Brom

Danny Ings has scored 10 goals in his last 12 Premier League games and rumours abound over a potential move away from St. Mary’s for the 28-year-old. 

But, with the transfer deadline just a day away, Ings remains a Saints player and leads the line against West Brom today. 

Southampton vs West Brom

Southampton are on a run of eight consecutive victories over newly promoted sides, will they extend that against West Brom today?

Leicester vs West Ham

If the Foxes defeat West Ham today, they will have won their opening four games to a season for the first time in their history. 

Leicester vs West Ham

Leicester can join Everton at the top of the Premier League if they overcome West Ham today.

 The Hammers have looked indifferent so far this season with two losses that showed their worst and a victory over Wolves where they were exceptional. 

Which side of them will we see today?

Southampton vs West Brom

No surprises from Southampton as they name an unchanged side from the one that beat Burnley last time out. 

West Brom make one change from the team who ended up drawing 3-3 with Chelsea after leading 3-0 in their previous game.

Kyle Edwards comes into the side, replacing Darnell Furlong.
