Southampton v Manchester United Betting Tips: Mourinho’s men to win with ease

These two teams are in rather contrasting form at the moment with Manchester United having won their last three whilst Southampton have picked up just one win in their last four. Southampton finally picked up their first win since 19th August last time out as they beat Crystal Palace 1-0. However, despite their aforementioned poor run of form, they are still in the top half of the table with a total of eight points after five games. That goal against lowly Crystal Palace was the Saints’ first goal in three matches and so it is no surprise that they are…

Southampton v Stoke City Betting Tips: Saints to end campaign with a win

These two sides have had rather indifferent seasons and will be glad when this campaign is over as they look for an improvement next time round. After failing to win in five attempts from mid-April to mid-May, Southampton are in relatively good nick going into this final match with a win and a draw in their last two matches, putting them 8th in the table. Although they have done relatively well to give themselves a chance of finishing 8th, many Southampton fans have been critical of their side this season and particularly manager Claude Puel due to what they perceive…

Southampton v Manchester United Betting Tips: Visitors to edge St Mary’s clash

Wednesday’s Premier League match looks a relatively low-key affair between two sides who have had disappointing seasons as Southampton host Manchester United. Southampton brought their lengthy win-less run to an end on Saturday thanks to a 2-1 victory away at already-relegated Middlesbrough. This was the first time they had taken maximum points in six matches and kept them in the top ten. Despite the fact they scored two at the weekend, The Saints have really struggled in the final third this campaign and, although it looked like Manolo Gabbiadini would cure these problems after arriving in January, he has now…

Middlesbrough v Southampton Betting Tips: Riverside crowd unlikely to witness a classic

As is the case with so many games at this time of the season, neither of these sides have much left to play for with Middlesbrough already relegated back to the Championship whilst Southampton are set for another mid-table finish. Middlesbrough’s 3-0 defeat to likely Premier League champions Chelsea last time out put an end to their two-match unbeaten run and confirmed their relegation back to the second tier after a powderpuff season back in the top flight. Although they found the back of the net three times in those aforementioned two matches, a lack of goals has been the…

Southampton v Arsenal Betting Tips: Lack of goals on the cards at St Mary’s

Only Arsenal have something left to play for here as they are still looking to get into the top four. However, with a six point gap between themselves and the Champions League spots, even that looks unlikely now. Southampton are currently stuck in 10th and are just waiting for the season to finish. The Saints did manage to earn a credible 0-0 draw at Liverpool at the weekend which now means they have now gone undefeated in their last two. However, it also means their win-less run is extended to four matches. Manager Claude Puel has dismissed talk of pressure…

Chelsea v Southampton Betting Tips: Conte’s men to move one step closer

Tuesday’s Premier League match sees title contenders Chelsea host Southampton, who are destined to finish mid-table but will want to ensure they put on a good display at Stamford Bridge. Despite being under pressure for most of the second half, Chelsea managed to get the better of Premier League title rivals Tottenham Hotspur to reach the FA Cup final and thus give themselves a decent chance of winning the double. However, they are only four points ahead of Spurs in the title race and so this match against Southampton is a must-win. Although they can certainly score a few goals,…

Tottenham v Southampton Betting Tips: Pochettino’s men to continue their strong form

Tottenham are on a good run at the moment with no defeats in their last five in all competitions whilst they have also won their last two Premier League matches. Overall this places them 2nd in the table, although they are a huge ten points off Chelsea in top spot. Mauricio Pochettino’s side have been excellent in both boxes this season, but particularly at the back and their record of just 20 goals against in 27 matches is the joint-best in the Premier League. Additionally, they have kept clean sheets in 44% of their games so far this campaign. They…

Manchester United v Southampton Betting Tips: United to prove too strong at Wembley

Sunday sees Manchester United and Southampton travel to Wembley for the first major cup final of the season as they fight it out for the EFL League Cup title. Manchester United are in good form going into this match after a run of five straight wins and no defeats in seven in all competitions. Mourinho has always given the League Cup a lot of respect and, despite fielding a strong side against Saint-Etienne in the Europa League on Thursday, you can pretty much guarantee he will go full strength again here. Although they are missing a couple of key players.…

Sunderland v Southampton Betting Tips: Shortage of goals expected at Stadium of Light

After beating Liverpool in the League Cup semi-final, Southampton, as we predicted, have had a downturn and it seems the players’ minds are already on that Wembley final. You could argue that they’ve lost the motivation to really fight in the Premier League as they know that they are likely to finish mid-table this season anyway. Since reaching the EFL Cup final, The Saints have lost all of their three matches, conceding 10 goals in the process. On the other hand, Sunderland have started to come to life in recent weeks. Firstly, they secured a point against high-flying Spurs, then…

Swansea v Southampton Betting Tips: Swans to kick-on in front of a home crowd

Having claimed an impressive away-day victory against Liverpool last time out, Swansea welcome Southampton to the Liberty Stadium on Tuesday night. As expected, Southampton lost to Arsenal in the FA Cup but two big questions emerged from that match. Firstly, how were Southampton so poor as they slumped to a 5-0 thrashing? And secondly, why did Claude Puel field such an under strength XI? The Saints had already reached the League Cup final and making the European spots this season seems unlikely, so you do have to question why the manager chose to play his reserves at home in a…

Liverpool v Southampton Betting Tips: Anfield can pull the hosts through

It is certainly advantage Southampton, albeit slim, going into the second leg of this EFL Cup semi-final as they hold a slender 1-0 lead. The visitors know that a draw at Anfield will be enough for them to get to Wembley. The onus is very much on Liverpool. Liverpool have been on a rather dodgy run in recent weeks having won just one of their last six matches in all competitions – and even that was a pretty fortunate 1-0 win in the FA Cup against League Two Plymouth Argyle. Although they are still in all three of the competitions…

Southampton v Norwich City Betting Tips: Saints can come through a goal-filled encounter at St Mary’s

Although these two play in separate divisions, this fixture is probably the closest match-up of all three of Wednesday’s FA Cup Third Round replays. The initial tie was a high-scoring affair that culminated in a 2-2 draw. Southampton have not been on the best of runs recently having won just once in their last six matches which has even led to some fans, rather dramatically, calling boss Claude Puel “the worst manager Southampton have ever had”. As mentioned on recent Saints tips, their once reliable back-line has now fallen apart somewhat with just one clean sheet in their last seven…

Burnley v Southampton Betting Tips: Dyche’s men can line punters’ pockets

This Premier League match is currently a mid-table clash between Burnley and Southampton. Additionally, with neither of these two scoring many goals, we could be in for a tight affair at Turf Moor on Saturday afternoon.  Burnley are not on a fantastic run at the moment having failed to collect three points in either of their last two matches in all competitions, however, two league victories prior to that keeps them in the upper reaches of the bottom half, while, perhaps more importantly, they have an eight point cushion between them and the drop-zone. As expected, the Clarets are an…

Southampton v Liverpool Betting Tips: Visitors to profit from a high-scoring first leg

This second EFL Cup semi-final looked like it would be quite finely balanced a few weeks ago. Now however, it looks like it will only be swinging one way. Southampton had been on a good run until a few weeks ago, but they’re currently without a win in four, losing their last three league matches before only managing a 2-2 draw away at Championship Norwich City. The Saints are still in the Premier League’s top-10 but will need to improve drastically to maintain such a position. However, this League Cup competition gives them a good chance of winning some silverware…

This FA Cup Third Round tie sees European hopefuls Southampton travel to Championship promotion hopefuls Norwich City. Norwich recorded an impressive 3-0 victory over in-form Derby County last time out after a run of three matches without a win, boosting them up to ninth in the table. However, despite recently being in the Premier League, The Canaries are a huge five points off that precious sixth spot with promotion looking an uphill task from here on. Alex Neil’s side have no problems in forward areas and are capable of blowing teams away with their attacking threat. They have scored an…

Everton v Southampton Betting Tips: Toffees can add to Saints’ misery

Both of these sides are looking for European football next season, but, thanks to some rather poor results in recent times, such objectives are looking as though they’re becoming harder and harder to fulfill. As a result, this is a big game for both at Goodison Park. Everton are currently 7th in the Premier League, but this is mainly thanks to their excellent start as their current run has seen them win just two matches in nine attempts. Their most recent outing saw them steal a point away at relegation-threatened Hull City where it took a late Ross Barkley goal…

Southampton v West Brom Betting Tips: Saints to bounce back in low-scoring fashion

This Premier League match sees two mid-table teams clash as Southampton play host to West Bromwich Albion at St Mary’s. Southampton suffered a rather heavy 4-1 at home to Tottenham Hotspur the other night to end a three-match unbeaten run. After a good run a couple of months ago, The Saints have now become a bit inconsistent which has resulted in them slipping down to eighth. Having said that, this is probably where they should expect to finish. Claude Puel’s side have really had to rely on their solid back-line to pick up results this season as they’ve been fairly…

This match is between two of the three teams with the best defensive records in the Premier League so we could be in for quite a cagey affair. Southampton have recovered from the slump they suffered a few weeks ago and have now won three out of their last five games, losing just once. The Saints are going somewhat under the radar at the moment and currently sit seventh in the league, although, with six points between them and 6th place Manchester United, that looks like the highest they will finish this season. Much like Tottenham, Claude Puel’s men are…

One of Sunday’s Premier League matches is a south coast derby between Bournemouth and Southampton. Bournemouth have been a mixed bag recently and have followed up victories with defeats rather than getting any sort of consistent run together. Despite this inconsistent set of results, The Cherries are sitting in the top-ten, albeit on goal difference, and so can be happy with their performance so far. As expected with an attacking side, Eddie Howe’s men do not have too much trouble scoring goals and they have scored in each of their last six Premier League matches. Unfortunately, with such an open…

Wednesday sees a battle between the red and white striped teams of Stoke and Southampton. After a dreadful start to the season, just like last year, Stoke have improved dramatically and now find themselves just one point outside of the top ten. However, that revival has dampened a bit in the last few games with two losses in their last four matches. The Potters have traditionally been a well-drilled team and that has obviously carried on into this season with just six goals conceded in their last eight matches with three of those goals coming against title-challengers Arsenal. When you…

This match is arguably the most competitive of the EFL League Cup matches this week and we could be in for a gripping encounter. However, whilst these two are good sides we are likely to see weakened line-ups on Tuesday night. Having said that, this duo probably have the two best academies in the country so it could be an opportunity to see new, young talent. Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger was really the pioneer of fielding young players in the League Cup a few years ago and, from a purist standpoint, he has had a big hand in demeaning this…

This duo are two of the better sides in the Premier League and both of them will be looking to push for European football this season. There is an extra spice added into this match with old boss Ronald Koeman bringing his Everton team to St. Mary’s Stadium. After a lot of optimism a few weeks ago with the Saints going on a five-match unbeaten run, conceding just twice in that period, Southampton had a bit of a downer losing to table-topping Chelsea and then relegation-threatened Hull City, however, they recovered last week to earn a respectable draw against high-flying…

Two sides with incredibly contrasting seasons go head-to-head at the KCom Stadium on Sunday. Hull City had an excellent start to the campaign, but are now in serious trouble whilst Southampton have woken up from their early season slumber to dramatically improve in recent weeks. It seems a long time ago since then caretaker manager Mike Phelan was voted Premier League Manager of the Month for August. Now in the role on a permanent basis, Phelan has endured a torrid time as Hull boss with six consecutive losses. Hull would have been heavily cut adrift had they not had that…

This should be an interesting match between two sides who have both been on good runs in the league recently. Both of them will be brimming with confidence and belief that they can achieve a good result on Sunday. Southampton have gone very much under the radar despite their recent form – probably due to them only being eighth in the Premier League table. However, their draw away at title favourites Manchester City was hardly a shock when you look at the contrasting recent results of the two teams. The Saints will even feel they should have won that match…

Two teams heading in different directions in the Premier League in the form of Southampton and Sunderland face each other on Wednesday night in the last-16 of the League Cup. Southampton recovered from their unlucky Europa League defeat against sleeping European giants Inter Milan to secure a point away at oil-rich Manchester City at the weekend. The way they forced the ball-playing City defence into making errors was fantastic and, if you were being ultra-critical, you would say that Southampton should have won that game if they had been more clinical in the final third. It will be interesting to…

A few weeks ago you would have bet your house on Manchester City to beat Southampton, however, after City’s recent dip, along with Southampton’s recent improvement, this match could be closer than you think. Manchester City’s winless streak now stretches to four matches in all competitions after defeat against manager Pep Guardiola’s former club Barcelona on Wednesday night in the Champions League. Whilst English media have got a bit over excitable about Guardiola’s reign at Manchester City so far, I have to say that I have been a bit more skeptical. Despite what many pundits seem to think, the 45-year-old’s…

Sunday’s late Premier League match sees two teams with different aims this season go head-to-head. Southampton, at the very least, will want to match last season’s achievement of earning European football, whilst Burnley are simply looking to stay in the division. However, at this stage of the season, the pair are separated by just two points in the table. The Saints suffered a pretty dreadful start to the season under new boss Claude Puel , suffering four games without victory. However, a narrow 1-0 victory over Swansea City just over a month ago was the catalyst for a purple patch…
