Southampton travel to Sunderland for Saturday’s lunchtime match live on BT Sport and will be hoping to put a bad week off the pitch behind them. The resignation of the chairman fuelled rumors the manager would be next to go so they will be glad to get back to playing football.
Things haven’t been too good on the pitch either of late for Saints though with just two wins in their last ten in the league. They take on a Sunderland side who have won their last three in all competitions and who have lost just one of their last six in the league.
However, Sunderland have struggled at home of late in the league and have not won their in the last four. I’m not convinced enough by either side to back them here so the draw looks the best shout. Sunderland have drawn three of their last six and Southampton have drawn three of their last seven on the road. Neither side will be too full of confidence so they should cancel each other out. The draw is 23/10 with Bet365 and looks the best bet here.
The main issue for Sunderland at home has been scoring goals. They have managed just ten in ten home games so far this season in the league. Southampton also have managed just ten in ten away games. As a consequence I don’t fancy goals to fly here, its 3/4 once again with Bet365 that there are under 2.5 goals in this clash.
Finally, Southampton love a 1-1 draw. Six of twenty-one league matches this season have ended that way for the Saints including the meeting between these two at St Mary’s back at the start of the season. At 6/1 with William Hill, 1-1 looks like the best looking result here.
