Southampton won 15 games in the last season and finished only 15th. The Saints conceded the most goals in the Premier League.
In the offseason, the board spent over 35 million to strengthen the squad. Southampton signed Adam Amstrong from Blackburn (17.7 million), Romain Perraud from Brest (12 million), and Tino Livramento (5.9 million).
At the start of the new season, the Saints lost away to Everton (1:3), drew with Manchester United (1:1) and with Newcastle (2:2).

West Ham United
West Ham had a fantastic 2020/2021 Premier League season. The Londoners earned 65 points in 38 rounds and finished in sixth place. These results allowed West Ham to get a ticket to the Europa League.
In the summer, West Ham signed Alphonse Areola from PSG (2 million) and defender Craig Dawson from Watford (2 million). The Hammers started the new season with victories over Newcastle (4:2) and Leicester (4:1), and in the previous round, they drew with Crystal Palace (2:2).
