Mauricio Pochettino's side will look to make it four successive Premier League victories and reach the 40-point mark when they welcome the Hammers to St. Mary's on Saturday

Jarvis, Nolan, Vaz Te
Southampton boss Mauricio Pochettino has a fully fit squad to pick from as they look to continue their fine run of form and boost their chances of a previously unlikely finish in the top half.
Midfielder Adam Lallana will be pushing for a starting role after making a goalscoring return from injury last week at the Madejski Stadium while Jay Rodriguez will be aiming to hit the back of the net for the fourth game running.
Coming off the back of good results against Liverpool (0-0) and West Brom (3-1), West Ham are currently 12th, only behind the Saints on goal difference but with a game in hand.
Andy Carroll is likely to return to the side in place of Carlton Cole having been ineligible to face his parent club last time out, but Allardyce admitted he is facing a "dilema" over which striker to play in the lone role up front after Cole impressed at Anfield.
