Southampton News and Form – Can the Saints take a crucial home win?

It is troubled times for Southampton who have managed to earn only two points from their last eight league outings. Both of those points were collected away from home as well. St Marys has yet to see Southampton win a league game this season in a very poor D1 L5 return from the Saints there. They are currently running on a four-match losing streak on home turf in the top flight. Their poor home record comes about even though they have scored in all but one of their league home games.

It has been just the five home goals produced by Southampton. They have conceded at an average of 3.5 goals per game on home soil. 83% of league fixtures at St Mary’s have made it over the 2.5 goal line. Given that high volume of goals against, Southampton have not earned a clean sheet at home. The Saints have also been losing at half time in every home game played. They have been losing at half time and full time in each of their last four home games. The Saints have also conceded at least 2 goals in 7 of their last 8 league games. But they are unbeaten in 11 of their last 12 against Watford across all competitions.

Watford News and Form – Can Watford win at Southampton?

The Hornets suffered a poor 3-0 loss at home against Burnley last weekend. That was a chance to have made it back to back wins for the season. The one victory that Watford have managed to secure all season was away at Norwich in their last road game. They have produced a W1 D5 L7 record in this campaign now. Out on the road, the portion of that is W1 D2 L3. The Hornets are at least undefeated in their last two on the road, a draw at Spurs preceding the win at Norwich.

Watford have won only one of their last 17 Premier League games now, a run which extends back to last season. That’s how much they have been struggling. Under 2.5 goals has happened in five of Watford’s six away games this season. With only four away goals scored this season, and overall home and away averaging just 0.62 per Premier League game, as they are going to have the scoring threat to bring down the Saints? Watford have failed to score in 54% of league fixtures this season. They are the lowest-scoring side in the top flight and have the third-worst defensive record.
