The Hammers will be licking their lips ahead of their trip to the league’s bottom club, after three wins on the bounce.

Fulham are struggling on their return to the top flight and look there for the taking

New Saints manager Ralph Hasenhuttl has a tough task ahead of him this weekend as he looks for his first win (and just Southampton’s second all season) against an on-song Arsenal side. Aubameyang looks unstoppable at the moment and the south coast club shouldn’t put up much of a fight.
