Preview | September 16
12th place Southampton travel to Villa Park on gameweek 8 to take on 17th place Villa. The Villans won't represent a break for Saints, who lost 0-4 in the last Premier League meeting between the sides. The larger history between these sides has been more competitive. In their last forty league meetings, Villa have fifteen victories to Southampton's sixteen.
Villa come into the match desperate for points after 3 losses in their last 5. Villa have a low xG (expected goals) and have had few opportunities to score. Their average xG of 0.8 over the last 5 matches has been 2nd lowest in the league. Following recent struggles, Danny Ings will be looking to threaten the Southampton goal. With 8 efforts on goal, he's taken the most shots for Villa this season. A bright spot to note – goalkeeper Emiliano Martínez has been effective, ranking 5th in the league in saves.
Due to recent success, Southampton have moved up to 12th in the table. This match is likely to be a low-scoring contest. Southampton average 1 xG (expected goals) per match, while Villa have only netted 5 times in their last 5. James Ward-Prowse has been key creatively for Southampton, averaging 3 passes into the box per match in their last 5.
Prediction: Villa 2-1 Southampton
This game is in the balance, yet Villa's dangerous frontmen appear as if they will make the difference.
Did you know? The most common scoreline between the two teams in Premier League history is a 1-1 draw – which has occurred 6 times.
Can the Villans pick up a long awaited 3 points? Will Saints improve their form? You've seen the stats, now check out the odds for this and all the other Premier League matches over at PokerStars Sports.
