Competition: Premier League
Market: Southampton win
Odds: 1/1 @ 888sport
Looking to make it back-to-back wins this weekend, Southampton will welcome a relegated Fulham to St. Mary’s on Saturday afternoon.
Starting with the hosts, while Southampton might have shown a host of issues since briefly topping the table back in November, The Saints did manage to find a much-needed boost earlier in the week. Despite falling 1-0 down at home against Crystal Palace, Ralph Hasenhüttl’s men landed a 3-1 win at St. Mary’s and they should be smelling another chance this weekend. With the red-hot Danny Ings putting in a Man of the Match display against The Eagles and bagging himself a brace, Southampton have at least shown some recent improvements on home soil. Last seen on the South Coast picking up that 3-1 win on Tuesday, the one-time RB Leipzig boss has seen his side muster themselves seven points from their last three Premier League contests on home soil.
As for the visitors, putting in another worrying display on Monday night, Fulham saw their immediate Championship return confirmed with three top-flight contests remaining this season. Despite shocking many as they landed a stunning 1-0 win at Anfield back in March, Scott Parker’s side have really failed to keep up that momentum. With their fate confirmed thanks to a deserved 2-0 defeat against Burnley at Craven Cottage earlier in the week, The Whites have now landed just a single point from their last seven Premier League matchups. Gaining a reputation for their extended issues in front of goal and bagging a single strike in over 400 minutes of action, it should also be noted that they hold a sluggish record on the South Coast. Suffering a 2-0 defeat when they last traveled to Southampton, we’re backing a similar outcome.
Bet: Southampton 1/1 to beat Fulham in Saturday’s Premier League matchup @ 888sport
