Southampton News and Form
Southampton had a nightmare evening last Friday at home against Leicester. They were reduced to 10 men early on and ended up losing 9-0. Even without that extravagant scoreline, the defence of the Saints has been struggling a lot recently. They have conceded at least two goals in four of their last five played now.
They have no clean sheet in five now, having conceded 19 goals in their last five league outings. The two wins that the Saints have managed to take this season have been out on the road (D1 L2). That’s a positive, but this, of course, is one of the toughest away games that there is in the English top flight. This will be Southampton’s first game this season away at one of the so-called Big Six.
Southampton have scored five goals on their travels, while they have only conceded six goals on the road. They have taken a clean sheet in 40% of their away games. They have been sat level at the break in four of their five away games (L1). Not only now do Southampton have the worst defensive record in the league, but only two teams have also scored fewer league goals than they have done.
