Southampton News and Form
The Saints took a heavy hit against West Ham last weekend in a 3-0 loss. It doesn’t matter as Southampton are safe for the season. That is a four-match winless streak behind them though D2 L2 and so their intensity has dropped, which is understandable after staving off the threat of relegation. This season Southampton have taken just the five wins on home soil in a W5 D7 L6 record. They have scored an average of 1.44 goals per game at home this season. They have conceded above that though at 1.6 per game on average. In total 72% of league games this season at St Marys have gone over 2.5 goals.
The Saints have scored in each of their last 13 home games in the division, which is good return. They have actually scored at least two goals in all but one of their last five there. The Saints have not taken a clean sheet in any of their last four at home though, none in their last six home and away combined. Each of their last four at home have made it over 2.5 goals. Southampton have actually done pretty well in having scored the opening goal in 11 of their 18 home games. But of the sixteen times this season they have taken the lead at home, they have conceded an equaliser eleven times, so have struggled to defend their advantages.

Huddersfield News and Form
Can the Terriers rally themselves to a win on the final day of such a tough season? They surprised a lot of people last weekend as they played out a 1-1 draw at home against Manchester United. That was a great effort for them in front of their home crowd for the final time this season. Away from home, the Terriers have managed just one away win all season (D3 L14) and that came against Wolves. It has been a season where they have barely registered as a threat in front of goal, netting just 11 away goals at an average of 0.6 per game. In total, they have only managed a clean sheet in 11% of road fixtures.
Huddersfield are currently sat on a seven-match losing streak of league form in the top flight. It is a winless streak of twelve that they are currently on. Huddersfield have not banked themselves a clean sheet in any of their last seven-way games and in none of their last nine home and away combined. The Terriers have actually conceded at least two goals in each of their last four away games, and have not hit the back of the net in any of their last three road games. They are the lowest scorers in this season’s Premier League and they have the second worst defensive record as well. There is nothing at stake here, can they just enjoy themselves before this EPL adventure comes to a close?
