Live at St. Mary’s Stadium – Saturday – 4:00pm GMT kick-off.
Saturday Premier League action from St. Mary’s Stadium, as Soton take on Fulham.
Saturday’s clash between Soton and Fulham, sees fourteenth take on eighteenth in the League.
This season’s Premier League campaign, has so far seen Southampton 40 points
Time will tell, whether Soton’s recent run of poor form is about to change. However Ralph Hasenhuttl will be keen to turn his season around with this game, following the recent defeat to Liverpool, which followed a disappointing 1-1 draw against Leicester City.
Soton need to get out of the losing habit, with 13 recorded in the last 17 games. With 40 points, they are established in fourteenth in the League having won 11 fixtures, drawn seven matches, and lost 17 meetings.
Soton have won six fixtures, drawn three matches, and lost seven meetings of their 16 League matches at home this season.
Southampton will see 43 points so far this season, should they secure a win.
Going into Saturday’s game, Ralph Hasenhuttl without four of his players, due to illness or injury.
Scott Parker’s Fulham, away to Southampton on Saturday, hoping to improve relegation prospects
Whilst Fulham need a positive result from this fixture, they cannot afford to throw caution to the wind. Another successive defeat for The Cottagers after losing against Burnley and Chelsea would represent a worrying sign of where they are just now.
Scott Parker may ponder the reasons why his Fulham team are struggling at the bottom of the table this season. But six defeats out of the last seven fixtures, should be all the analysis that he really needs. Their position is eighteenth in the League, and they have 27 points having won five fixtures, drawn 12 meetings, and lost 18 matches.
Fulham now travel, knowing that their current away form is woeful. So far this season they have won three fixtures, drawn eight games, and lost six matches matches on the road.
Fulham will have 30 points so far this season, should they secure a win.
Fulham are no strangers this Season to illness and injury and Scott Parker is concerned that Saturday’s fixture could see him without three of his key players
