Southampton welcomes Arsenal in a game from the 17th round of the Premier League. Allow us to take a look at this clash at St. Mary’s in our vip soccer predictions today.
Southampton are a team with serious problems at the moment. The Saints are 19th in the standings with just 9 points, being positioned in the relegation zone. They have a record of 1 win, 6 draws and 9 losses since the beginning of the season. Currently Southampton are 3 points behind the 17th Burnley and the safe zone.
In the previous round Southampton visited Cardiff City in the Welsh capital, but suffered a 0-1 defeat. This was a debut for Southampton’s new manager Ralph Hassenhuttl, who replaced the sacked Mark Hughes. The only goal in the game was scored by Callum Peterson 15 minutes before the end.
If Southampton don’t find a way to improve their performance, this season could end pretty badly for them. Now everything is up to Ralph Hassenhuttl, who must find a way to motivate his players to do better.
