Southampton Preview – Will the Saints stretch unbeaten run?

Southampton struggled to get going this season, failing to win any of their opening seven in the Premier League. Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men lost three and drew four before finally getting three points on matchday eight, beating Leeds United 1-0 at home.

After the much-needed victory over Leeds, the Saints were held to a 2-2 draw by Burnley. They returned to winning ways last time out, though, with Che Adams scoring the only goal of the game in a 1-0 victory over Watford at Vicarage Road.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

(odds taken 1621 GMT, Thursday 4 November)

Southampton’s improved run of results has lifted them up to 14th in the table. After two wins, five draws and three defeats, the Hampshire club have taken 11 points from ten fixtures.

Southampton would love to extend their unbeaten run with three points on home soil this Friday night. The bookies have the Saints victory available at 11/10.

Aston Villa Preview – Can the Villans stop the rot?

Dean Smith’s Aston Villa made a solid start to their league campaign, kicking off with three wins from their opening six matches. In September, the Villans picked up stunning back-to-back victories over Everton and Manchester United.

Since that famous win at Old Trafford on 25th September, things have gone downhill for the Midlands club. They have suffered four defeats on the spin, losing to Tottenham Hotspur, Wolverhampton Wanderers, Arsenal and West Ham United. Dean Smith’s side have dropped down to 15th as a consequence.

Southampton vs Aston Villa Betting Advice

When these two sides squared off at Villa Park a year ago, Southampton edged a seven-goal thriller. The Saints were 4-0 up until Tyrone Mings pulled one back just after the hour mark. Injury-time goals from Jack Grealish and Ollie Watkins made it interesting, but the Saints held on for the points.

Aston Villa got revenge at St Mary’s in the January meeting. A Ross Barkley goal just before half time earned the Midlands club a 1-0 victory.


Key Facts – Southampton vs Aston Villa Betting Tip

  • There were eight goals scored across the two league meetings last term
  • Southampton are unbeaten in three league games (two wins, one draw)

Scotland international Che Adams has scored two in his last two for Southampton, including the winner at Watford last time out. Back Adams to make it three in three by netting anytime in this one at 7/4.
