Southampton News and Form

Southampton suffered a 3-0 home defeat last weekend against West Ham. They are not going to care about that because they have achieved their goal of staying in the top flight. Southampton are winless in four games at the moment though, losing two of those, and it is understandable that their intensity has dropped a little bit.

Across the course of the season, the Saints have only taken five home victories which has been part of a W5 D7 L6 record. They have scored an average of 1.44 goals per game at home this season. Southampton have not done quite as well in defence because they have conceded at an average of 1.6 goals per home fixture. In total 72% of league games this season at St Marys have gone over 2.5 goals.

4/5

The Saints have scored in each of their last 13 home games in the division, which is a good return. Southampton have netted a least two goals in all but one of their last five home games. The problem is that they have not taken a clean sheet in any of their last four at St Marys.

Overall home and away combined Southampton are without a clean sheet in six. Each of the last four at St Marys in the Premier League games have made it over 2.5 goals. Southampton have opened the scoring in 11 of their eighteen home games, which has been a good return from them. 16 times Southampton have taken the lead in home games this season, but they have conceded an equalising goal on 11 of those occasions.

Huddersfield News and Form

A bit will be interesting to see if Huddersfield can rally themselves for one final effort for the season and pick up a victory. Last weekend they got a very surprising result as they played out a 1-1 home draw against Manchester United. They really entertained the home crowd for the final time this season in the Premier League.

Huddersfield have only the one away win all season in the top flight, losing 14 of the other 17 played. Their lone victory happened against Wolves. They have not registered much of a threat in front of goal this season as they have come up with just 11 away goals. That has been an average of 0.6 goals per away game by Huddersfield. In total, they have earned a clean sheet in 11% of road fixtures.

Huddersfield have lost each of their last seven away games in the Premier League, and they are winless in their last dozen. There has not been a clean sheet produced by Huddersfield in any of their last seven on the road, and in nine of their last nine home and away combined. Huddersfield have conceded at least two goals per game in each of their last four road fixtures.

The Terriers have not scored in any of their last three away games. Huddersfield have tallied the least amount of goals of all teams in this season’s Premier League. On top of that, they have produced the second worst defensive record. At least now with relegation confirmed, there is nothing at stake so maybe they can enjoy themselves on the South coast.

Southampton v Huddersfield Predictions

Southampton to win: The straight forward option is backing the Saints to claim the victory in this one and it wouldn’t be a huge surprise if it was with a clean sheet as well. That’s about all there is to it.
