The teams are level on 33 points and both teams are enduring a difficult run of form at the tail end of the season. By the look of the standings, both teams will be involved in the relegation battle until the final match of the season.

English Premier League Relegation table 6th May 2018

The Swans lost 1-0 to Bournemouth in Saturday’s early kick off and are on three match losing streak with scoring. Also, they are without a win in 7 matches with their last victory dated back to the beginning of March against another relegation candidate West Ham.

However, 5 of Swansea’s last 7 games are on the road. At home, they have been simply superb since Carlos Carvalhal took over and bagged 4 wins on the bounce before a draw against Everton and narrow 1-0 loss to Chelsea in the most recent one.

Southampton could have pulled them ahead in the relegation battle on Saturday, if they haven’t conceded late goal in the 1-1 draw at Everton. However, this make it 5 points from three matches which give them something to fight for the final two games of the season. However, their overall form is extremely poor as only 2 wins came from their last 23 matches.

The bad news for Saints’ fans is that their team will be traveling to Manchester City for the final game of the season. This make it extremely important to win at the Liberty Stadium on Tuesday.

Luckily for Swansea, their two remaining games at home, their last against another relegation candidate Stoke City.

Swansea vs Southampton: Head-to-head

Overall 11 Premier League meetings between the clubs; Southampton have an excellent record with 6 wins alongside 4 draws while losing 2 times to Swansea.

The Swans won their home match against Southampton last season by a 2-1 margin, which is their first Premier League win against the Saints, drew 1 and lost 3 in the four previous games failing in score in all four.

Nine of those 11 meetings recorded under 2.5 goals.

Swansea vs Southampton: Predictions

Neither side can think of anything less than wins from their remaining two games of the season as 39 points seem like the norm to avoid relegation. This clearly means that they cannot sit back and wait for things to happen and need to go on the attacking front from start. Therefore, I will be going with both teams to score as my first and only choice of this game. I firmly believe that this is not the kind of game that give any assurance on the full-time result.
