Southampton vs Fulham
SAT 15 MAY 2021 – KO 15:00
BETTING & MATCH PREDICTION
It’s Southampton Vs Fulham on Saturday afternoon with the action kicking off at 15:00, with the visitors now relegated from the Premier League.
The Saints put an end to a poor run of form in their last game against Crystal Palace. They came away with a 3-1 win, Danny Ings getting himself back in the goals with a brace.
They started well this season but injuries really cost them and it saw them go from fourth to 17th over the course of four months. They would like to finish the season strong and the game against Fulham is a good chance to get another win.
Southampton play with a lot of energy and press high up the pitch. Both of their strikers scored in the last game and will be confident going into this game. The opposition will still be feeling the effects of relegation and Southampton should have enough.
Scott Parkers side looked like they might stay up at one point but the game against Burnley last week put an end to that. They were beaten 2-0 and were sent back down to the Championship after one season.
A lot of players’ position at the club will be on the line now. This is a good opportunity with the pressure off to show why they should be at the club next season.
Parker will get his team fired up for this one and will want a response for the fans. They can play very good football at times but are wasteful in front of goal, which has eventually cost them. Whether his players can dust themselves down and go again though is another question!
Southampton have a few players out. Their confirmed injuries are Romeu, Smallbone and Bertrand.
Cairney, Kongolo are out whilst Reed is a doubt.
