Saturday December 5, 2015 15:00pm – St. Mary’s Stadium

Recent Form

Southampton: LLWWD

Aston Villa: LLDLL

Southampton will attempt to arrest their recent slide on Saturday when they host bottom club Aston Villa at St. Mary’s in the Barclays Premier League.

Saints marching in wrong direction

Southampton lost away from home in the league for the first time last weekend when they went down by three goals to one to Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium. Prior to that they were beaten at home to Stoke City and now find themselves in 10th positon in the table, seven points adrift of the top four.

Ronald Koeman’s team now have a great chance to get back to winning ways when they face a team that are without a win in their last 13 matches having lost 11 and drawn two.

Small signs of recovery for Villa

Aston Villa still have not won a game since the opening day of the season but in the recent draw against Manchester City and last week’s defeat to Watford Remi Garde’s men have shown small glimpses of improvement. However, they still remain stranded at the bottom of the Premier League table seven points adrift of safety.


Villa could take advantage of a Southampton side suffering from a crisis of confidence following double league defeats to Stoke and Man City and a 6-1 League Cup hammering by Liverpool. The draw can be backed at 16/5 with Bet365.
