Southampton vs Norwich Betting Tips – Premier League, 4th December 7.30pm

Southampton did themselves a huge favour on the weekend as they fought back from a goal down to beat bottom side, Watford. That nudged them a little closer to safety but there is still plenty of work for them to do. Norwich surprised many on the weekend in producing a home point against Arsenal. Can they make it three matches in a row without defeat? Read our predictions for Southampton vs Norwich.

Southampton News and Form – Can Southampton sink the Canaries?

Another chance at big survival points coming up for Southampton. They fought back from behind against Watford at St Mary’s on the weekend to bank a 2-1 win. That was the first home win of this campaign for Southampton. The Saints are W1 D1 L5 at home now. That win on the weekend snapped a sequence of just two points from eight games that Southampton had been on. It’s not been pretty stuff from them and the fact that they did struggle to get past the Hornets leaves big question marks over them.

2-1 correct score Norwich

Ladbrokes

They were on a four-match losing streak at home before the win over Watford on the weekend. The Saints have conceded at over three goals per game on average and home and away, have not secured a clean sheet in any of their last nine league outings. A big trend has been half time results in Southampton’s home games. The Saints have been losing at the halftime break in all of their home fixtures in the top flight this season. 6 of the 7 home goals that they have scored this season have come in the second half of fixtures.

Norwich News and Form – Can the Canaries win at St Mary’s?

There has been a bit of cheer for Norwich in their last two league games. First, they sprung a surprise away win on Everton. Then over the weekend they played host to Arsenal and bagged themselves a point in a 2-2 draw. So that’s back to back games in which they have scored two goals. That’s a little streak and given the lack of clean sheets by Southampton this season, Norwich have to be worth looking at in this fixture.

The Canaries are only W1 D1 L5 out on their travels this season, failing to score in five of those. But there should be chances for them here, especially now that they are in a bit more of a confident mood. Todd Cantwell has scored in Norwich’s last two games. There have only been three away goals needed by Norwich, but the fact that they got on the scoreboard twice at Everton in their last road game suggests that they are capable of striking in this one. Their two clean sheets this season have been away from home as well. There is a good chance at survival points for Norwich here. It’s not a game that they can afford to lose.

Away win at 8/11

Southampton vs Norwich Predictions

Norwich to win: The Canaries have to be worth a little flutter here. They have just hit a bit of scoring form and they are taking on a Southampton side who have had some massive struggles on home turf this season. The extra attacking quality of the visitors could prevail.
