Team News: Mario Lemina makes Southampton debut against West Ham United

Mario Lemina is included in Southampton's starting XI as they take on West Ham United this afternoon.

Mario Lemina has been included in Southampton's starting XI as they take on West Ham United this afternoon.

The club-record signing from Juventus is handed his debut after watching last week's goalless stalemate with Swansea City from the comfort of the bench. James Ward-Prowse is the man to make way, taking a place among the subs.

Lemina's inclusion represents Mauricio Pellegrino's only alteration from the side that started against the Swans, as Ryan Bertrand is able to take his place in the back four after recovering from a knock he picked up in that match.

The visiting Hammers, meanwhile, show four changes to the side that suffered a heavy 4-0 defeat to Manchester United last Sunday.

Two changes come in defence, as Aaron Cresswell and Jose Fonte - replacing Angelo Ogbonna and Arthur Masuaku - form a back four alongside Pablo Zabaleta and Winston Reid.

Further forward, Declan Rice comes in for Pedro Obiang and Edimilson Fernandes is replaced by Michail Antonio, who returns to the squad following a hamstring operation over the summer.

Southampton: Forster; Soares, Stephens, Yoshida, Bertrand; Lemina, Romeu; Davis, Tadic, Redmond; Gabbiadini
Subs: McCarthy, Long, Austin, Ward-Prowse, Boufal, Bednarek, McQueen

West Ham United: Hart; Reid, Cresswell, Fonte, Zabaleta; Rice, Arnautovic, Noble, Antonio, Ayew, Hernandez
Subs: Adrian, Obiang, Sakho, Ogbonna, Byram, Masuaku, Fernandes
