Southampton vs West Bromwich Albion: Preview and Predictions

Southampton vs West Bromwich Albion
Premier League
Date: 21st October 2017
Kick off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: St. Mary’s Stadium (Southampton).

Southampton continued their mediocre campaign in this term of Premier League last weekend when they barely managed a last ditch draw with newly-promoted Newcastle United at home.

This leaves the Saints at only a single win in last seven outings in all competitions coming into the clash set to close the day in Premier League against West Bromwich Albion at St. Mary’s.

Southampton

The Argentine manager Mauricio Pellegrino can’t be quite thrilled with the start of his reign at St. Mary’s which has seen the Saints struggle hard to find goals.

Prior to Gabbiadini’s brace from last Saturday, Southampton have failed to find the back of the net in three consecutive home outings in all competitions.

West Bromwich Albion

The Baggies got off to a flying start with back-to-back wins in opening two rounds, but they have been winless since which leaves them in the middle of the Premier League table quite near the red zone.

To be fair, Tony Pulis’s side has not given away points easily either as they drew three of their last four league outings.

WBA were very close to snatching three points on Monday, but they were unlucky to concede a late equalizer from Riyad Mahrez at King Power Stadium.

Southampton vs West Bromwich Albion: Head to head

The draw has been the most common of the outcomes in a lengthy head to head history of the encounters between the two sides.

The teams took an away win each in the previous term of Premier League.

Southampton vs West Bromwich Albion: Prediction

The bookies fancy Southampton at 1.85 to end the negative run and claim three points here, but we honestly see the draw as by far the best of the betting options according to everything written above.

Southampton vs West Bromwich Albion: Bets

The main betting pick is the draw at the odds of 3.40.
