Team news: Haller returns for Hammers at Southampton

Sebastien Haller

Sebastien Haller returns to the West Ham United starting XI for Saturday's Premier League clash at Southampton.

Haller comes in for Felipe Anderson in the Hammers' only change from the XI which took on Arsenal on Monday, as the Brazilian misses out with an illness.

David Martin continues in goal as Lukasz Fabianski's work to come back from a hip problem carries on.

Aaron Cresswell has shrugged off the problem which forced his early exit against the Gunners and he keeps his place at left-back.

Mark Noble captains the team on his 501st senior appearance, with Declan Rice anchoring the midfield alongside him. Pablo Fornals, Robert Snodgrass and Michail Antonio provide the Hammers' other attacking options.

It remains to be seen what formation manager Manuel Pellegrini will utilise at St Mary's Stadium.
