Competition: Premier League
Market: Danny Ings to score anytime
Odds: 7/5 @ 888sport
Continuing to shine at the back end of the campaign, a high-flying Southampton will welcome a stalling Sheffield United to St. Mary’s on Sunday afternoon.
Starting with the hosts, picking up a 2-0 win away at the Vitality last weekend and all but securing Bournemouth’s relegation, Southampton have continued to catch the eye at the back end of the campaign. Including snatching the most dramatic of points off of Manchester United at Old Trafford earlier in the month, the Saints find themselves in the midst of a six-match unbeaten run. Enjoying their brightest spell of the season so far, there is no doubt that Head Coach Ralph Hasenhüttl will be hugely excited by Danny Ings’ remarkable campaign at St. Mary’s. Finding the net against their South Coast rivals last weekend, the former Liverpool striker has recorded back-to-back Premier League goals and sits second in the overall scoring charts.
As for the visitors, putting in what looked like another lethargic display in a 1-0 defeat at home against Everton on Tuesday, the Blades have seen their European ambitions wiped off the table. Showing some real signs of fatigue after what has been a fairytale year at Bramall Lane, Chris Wilder’s men have been hit with back-to-back Premier League defeats for the second time since the interuption. Hit with a 1-0 defeat when they hosted the Saints earlier in the season, they have begun to show some extended issues on the road. Including marking their return from football’s enforced break with a 3-0 hammering away at Newcastle last month, a result billed as their worst performance of the season, Wilder’s side have collected just a pair of points over their last five top-flight displays away from Bramall Lane.
Bet: Danny Ings 7/5 to score anytime against Sheffield United in Sunday’s Premier League finale @ 888sport
