West Ham dropped down to 19th place in the Premier League without kicking a ball on Saturday.

Southampton are due to travel to the London Stadium to face the Hammers this afternoon, with Southampton currently bottom of the table with 23 points from 28 games. But West Ham are now only one point and one place above their opponents after Bournemouth moved out of the relegation zone with a 2-1 win against Fulham.

The Cherries came from a goal down to win 2-1 thanks to goals from Marcus Tavernier and Dominic Solanke, with Bournemouth moving up to 15th as a result.

There was also a crucial win for relegation rivals Crystal Palace, who also came from a goal down at home to beat Leicester City 2-1 at Selhurst Park, with Jean-Philippe Mateta scoring a 94th-minute winner for the Eagles to give the south London side their first win in the league since New Year’s Eve.

That result moved Palace up to 30 points and five points clear of the relegation zone, with Leicester dropping into the bottom three, with 25 points from 28 games.

A win for Southampton would leave West Ham in last place and in real trouble, while a win for the Hammers could move them up to 14th place in the table above Nottingham Forrest, Leeds United, Everton. Leicester City and Bournemouth.

Today’s game is the biggest six-pointer of the season, with commentators suggesting the loser could be doomed to relegation.

A draw would leave West Ham in 19th place on an identical goal difference with Leicester City on 25 points by the virtual they have won one more game.
