Southampton Preview – Can Saints avoid third loss on trot?

Following recent back-to-back defeats against Leicester City and Arsenal in 1-0 and 3-1 defeats respectively, Southampton find themselves in 11th place and will now be desperate to avoid a third defeat at home to Aston Villa when they take to the filed on Saturday evening.

An impressive seven-match unbeaten run which started towards the end of September promised greater things were perhaps in store for Southampton under manager, Ralph Hasenhuttl, whose side have quietly and methodically gone about their business, but just one win from their last seven matches is threatening to undo all of Saints’s previous hard work.

Results at home have also suffered in recent times as Southampton have won just two of their last six at home but one thing in the hosts’ favour is that they’ve failed to score in just two of their 10 home matches to date.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Aston Villa Preview – Can Villa avoid another away defeat?

After having lost their last three away matches on the trot, Aston Villa will make their way down to the south coast seeking a revival in fortunes as the west midlands club have managed to pick up just one win out of their last five matches overall.

Similar to Southampton, Saturday’s visitors, Villa, have also experienced a fluctuation in form and results and it’s perhaps no surprise that they’ve joined Southampton in a mid-table position in the Premier League as a result.

Villa’s early form away from home though was excellent as the visitors had racked up five wins out of their opening six outings on the road, but they’ve since lost three of their last four so the prospects of an away win do seem slim here; however, six of Aston Villa’s 10 away matches have seen over 2.5 goals.
