It’s 17th v 18th at Villa Park on Saturday afternoon and it’s perfectly feasible that at least one of Aston Villa or Southampton will be relegated to the Championship in May.

Team news | League Table | Odds

The Villans enjoyed promotion last season through the play-offs and it’s been a slog trying to accrue points, with Dean Smith’s side landing four victories from seventeen top flight games, with just four points gained from their past eight encounters.

Concerning times for the Midlands side despite the bright campaigns being enjoyed by Jack Grealish and John McGinn in midfield, with the team certainly capable of scoring goals although 30 goals conceded is too many.

As for Southampton, they have the same number of points (15) and last weekend’s home reverse against West Ham keeps them in the relegation zone and they have conceded an astonishing 36 goals this season.

Ralph Hasenhuttl is enjoying the patience of the Saints board although the Austrian seems to be permanently at a loss to improve the fortunes of the team even if they’ve picked up more points on the road than at St Mary’s.

There have been a few hard luck stories on the road and Southampton actually led at Manchester City until twenty minutes were remaining, although we can’t really be confident in them winning this encounter.

Both sides will be going for the victory in this pre-Christmas clash and the best bet appears to be both teams finding the net during the ninety minutes.

Before losing at home to West Ham by a single goal, Southampton had scored in their previous seven encounters and it would take a brave person to bet on them keeping a clean sheet.
