5th November – 21:00, St. Mary’s Stadium, Southampton
Southampton and Aston Villa will open the action in the Premier League 11th round with Friday’s evening clash. The home side wants to continue with good displays, while the visitors look forward to breaking their losing streak.
Southampton vs Aston Villa Match Preview & Team News
After a very poor start of the season, the hosts managed to improve their game in the past few weeks. Southampton picked up seven points in the previous three rounds and got away from the relegation zone. Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side sits in 14th place, being four points ahead of the red line. The Saints should keep up where they left off, as they still haven’t got away from the danger zone. Mohamed Elyounoussi and the lads should improve their finishing since they netted only nine times so far. On the other hand, Southampton’s defense hasn’t been too bad, as they conceded 12 goals this season. They lost only once at the home ground and hope for another good display in front of their fans.
Aston Villa is in real trouble, as the away side lost four times in a row. They slipped down to the 15th spot, being one point behind their upcoming rivals. The Villans didn’t pick up a single point in October, and they need to perform better to get away from the trouble. Dean Smith’s side has had too many problems in the back lately, as they conceded at least two goals on the previous four occasions. Although Danny Ings and the lads scored 14 goals this season, Aston Villa conceded 19 times in ten games. The visitors need to be much more disciplined in the back to change their fortune.
Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction
Aston Villa has been playing very badly in the past month, and their confidence is very low. Southampton is on the rise, and they could capitalize on their rival’s lousy form. Therefore, we expect the hosts to pick up all three points from this one.
Goals Market Prediction
Although Southampton has had trouble converting their chances into goals, the Villans are very leaky in the back. We believe the fans will enjoy an efficient game in which both teams will find the back of the net.
