The Saints have only taken two points from their last four games but nonetheless, have managed to maintain their Premier League status. So it’s a relaxed end to the season for them now. They may even get the chance to pick up a comfortable three points against bottom side Huddersfield to sign off with. Read our Southampton v Huddersfield betting tips for more.

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.
The Saints were 3-1 winners against the Terriers earlier this season
Southampton are unbeaten in four against Huddersfield (W2 D2)
The Terriers are winless in four at St Marys
Four of the last five meetings at St Marys have gone over 2.5 goals
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?
The Saints look value to win this and it’s likely going to be a low scoring game. Huddersfield battled well for their point at home last weekend against Man Utd. It may be a different story for them out on the road. Home win.

Manchester United’s hopes of a top-four finish this season hang on this one. Realistically they have to try and better whatever Chelsea manage against Watford this weekend to keep that slim hope alive. The Terriers remain on a huge losing streak and it would be something if they won their final home fixture. Read our Huddersfield v Manchester United betting tips for more.
Man Utd 3/10
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on May 2nd, 2019 at 7:34 p.m.)
The Terriers are currently on an eight-match losing streak in the top flight. At home, it is a three-match losing run that they are on. Their home form for the season is W2 D2 L14 and it has been such an overwhelming difficult campaign for them. Can they at least raise a challenge in their final home fixture of the season? They have at least scored in four of their last five home fixtures, which is something. All season they have only managed the nine goals at home.
In total Huddersfield have picked up three clean sheets on home soil, connecting at an average of 1.67 goals per home fixture. The two wins that they picked at the John Smiths Stadium were both by a one-goal margin. Eight of their fourteen home losses have been by a one-goal margin. Huddersfield have lost all eleven games matches played, home and away, against the Big Six in the league.
Man Utd were 3-1 home winners over Huddersfield in December
The Red Devils have won their last three against the Terriers in all competitions
Huddersfield took a 2-1 win in this corresponding fixture last season
Both teams have scored in two of the last six meetings
The Red Devils picked up a home point against Chelsea last weekend, moving them onto a three-match losing streak. The point against the Blues is their only one in their last three games now. Overall, Manchester United have lost four of their last seven Premier League fixtures (W2 D1). They away form of the Red Devils is W9 D2 L7 this season but they are currently on a three-match losing streak away from home. Those defeats were against Arsenal, Wolves and Everton, United conceding eight goals in that run.
Manchester United have averaged 1.7 goals per away game this season, with 72% of their away fixtures going over 2.5 goals. They have scored at least two goals in each of their last three league away games. In total, they have picked up a clean sheet in 28% of away games but they have not eared one in any of their last four away from Old Trafford. Home and away combined, United have no clean sheet in nine. United have netted the opening goal in eight away games this season but heading into the weekend, only three teams have produced superiro away records than they have done.
Huddersfield are not too likely to sign off their home campaign with anything special in this one. Even though United are on the ropes at the moment, their defence producing some poor stuff, they may be worth a punt to get a clean sheet win.

It is Liverpool who can land the first blow of the weekend in the title race this weekend. The Reds trail Manchester City by a point at the top with three games to go. All they can do is keep winning and hope for the best. Against a Huddersfield side who are on a big losing streak, that may not be too difficult for them. Read our Liverpool v Huddersfield betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on April 25th, 2019 at 7:36 p.m.)
The Reds have to keep winning and hope that Man City slip up somewhere inside of the final three rounds of league action. The Reds are on a hot streak of form at the moment as they have won their last six on the bounce. Their last two wins have both been by a 2-0 scoreline, over Cardiff and Chelsea. They have strung together a five-match winning streak on home soil as well, remaining undefeated at Anfield all season. Their home record for the season is W15 D2 L0.
The Reds have averaged 2.8 goals per home game this season, while they have only conceded the ten home goals. That’s an average of 0.6 goals per home game against them. As a nod towards their scoring then, is the fact that 65% of their home fixtures have gone over 2.5 goals. In total, they have earned a clean sheet in 59% of home games. Of their fifteen home wins this season only four of them have been by a one-goal margin. The Reds have also been leading at the halftime break in 11 of their home games and are on a thirteen match league scoring streak at Anfield. The Reds have opened the scoring in 13 of 17 home games in the EPL.
Liverpool have won all three previous EPL meetings with Huddersfield to nil
The Reds won this corresponding fixture 3-0 last season
Liverpool have scored nine unanswered goals in their last four against the Terriers
The last time that the Terriers beat Liverpool in any competition was 1959
Huddersfield are down and out and are not showing any signs of putting a win on the board during their run in. It’s certainly going to be tough for them to do so in this game. The Terriers have lost their last seven league games in a row now and in that sequence of games, they failed to score in four of them. The Terriers have lost all ten games played this season against the top six. They scored just the three goals in those ten games as well. Their overall away record is just W1 D3 L13 for the season.
In total, they have only produced the eleven away goals out on the road this season. 64% of those were produced in the first half of fixtures. Huddersfield have conceded at an average of 2.3 goals per away game. In total, they have managed just the two clean sheets on their travels this season. They are without a clean a sheet in any of their last seven league games and in any of their six on the road. In their last six, home and away, they have conceded at least two goals in each. They are the lowest scorers in the league and have the second-worst defence.
A comfortable 2-0 home win for the Reds looks about the right mark. They have to keep something in the tank for their visit to Barcelona in the Champions League semi-finals in midweek. So that may keep the score down a bit in this one.

The Terriers continued their losing streak last weekend and the end of the season can’t come quickly enough for them. Watford suffered a loss at Arsenal last weekend playing most of the game with ten men. Can they respond in this one? Read our Huddersfield v Watford betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on April 16th, 2019 at 11:57 p.m.)
The Terriers are still slumping towards the end of the season. They lost 4-0 at Spurs last weekend which was their sixth straight defeat. On home soil, they have lost their last two which is part of a very poor return of just W2 D2 L13 this season at the John Smiths. Huddersfield have managed only the eight home goals this season while they have conceded at an average of 1.65 per home game.
41% of Huddersfield’s home games have gone over 2.5 goals only. In total, the Terrier shave taken a clean sheet in four home games but have one in their last eleven on home turf. Their two home wins this season have both been by a one-goal margin. Huddersfield Have been losing at the halftime break in 10 of their 17 home games.
Watford earned a 3-0 home win over the Terriers earlier this season
The Terriers won this corresponding fixture 1-0 last season
The Terriers have won three of the last four league meetings
Watford have lost their last two league visits to Huddersfield
Watford suffered a 1-0 home loss against Arsenal last Monday but were reduced to ten men very early with a red card for Troy Deeney. They were still the better of the two sides even with a man disadvantage. Watford are W5 D5 L7 on their top-flight travels. Things haven’t been going that well for them recently with a three-match losing streak away from home going. They have managed one win in their last five on the road.
To be fair their last three away games have been against Liverpool, Man City and Man Utd though. The Hornets have conceded in each of their last four away games, and they have shipped at least two goals in each of their last three away from Vicarage Road. Home and away combined, they haven’t earned a clean sheet in any of their last seven. Each of their last four away games have gone over 2.5 goals. Watford have averaged 1.4 goals per away game this season and they have scored in 71% of their away games.
Watford can go and get themselves a win on the board and it’s likely to be with a clean sheet as well. The Terriers just don’t’ seem to have anything left in them at all at the moment. Watford to win.

After a busy midweek of Champions League action, this could be just the game that Spurs need now back in the Premier League. They have a tough fight for a top-four finish on their hands now. Huddersfield have already been relegated and lost again last weekend. Read our Tottenham v Huddersfield betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on April 9th, 2019 at 11:32 p.m.)
Spurs have been struggling for league form recently. They had taken just one point in five games before landing a 2-0 success against Crystal Palace in their last fixture. That win over Palace was the first ever game at the new Tottenham Hotspur stadium. The slump in form that Spurs have been going through, has pretty much been in away games. They are undefeated in their last five on home soil at the moment in the Premier League, winning four of those. In midweek they took a 1-0 Champions League first-leg win over Man City at home but may have lost Harry Kane for the rest of the season.
Tottenham have averaged 1.8 goals per home game this season, taking a clean sheet in a third of home fixtures. Of the ten home wins that Spurs have taken, six of them have been by a margin of a least two goals. Spurs have been leading at half time in 7 of 15 home fixtures. The Lilywhites are on a five-match scoring streak at home at the moment. Of the home goals scored by Spurs, 63% of them have been in the second half of fixtures. The Lilywhites have opened the scoring in 10 of their 15 home games this season. Home and away they have one clean sheet in seven.
Spurs were 2-0 winners at Huddersfield earlier this season
Spurs are on a four-match winning streak against the Terriers in all competitions
The Terriers have failed to score in their three previous EPL games against Spurs
Spurs won this corresponding fixture last season 2-0
Huddersfield failed at home last weekend, suffering a 1-4 reverse against Leicester. That was their fifth straight league defeat. They have already been relegated. Away from home this season they have only picked up a W1 D3 L12 record and they are currently on a five-match losing streak on their travels. They have lost nine of their last ten on the road. Across their away campaign, Huddersfield have scored just the eleven goals.
They have shipped at an average of 2.2 goals per away game, taking just the two clean sheets all season. Less than half of their away games have gone under 2.5 goals and the Terriers have failed to score in six of their last seven road fixtures in the EPL. They are the lowest scoring side this season in the Premier League.
That was an exhausting game Spurs had against Man City in midweek. This should be much easier for them at the end of the day. The fight has pretty much gone from Huddersfield at this point. Spurs to win to nil.

Huddersfield have already been relegated from the top flight this season, so there may be a drop off in their intensity. That or it could work the other way and allow them to play with a bit of relaxed freedom. They welcome Leicester to the John Smith’s on the weekend. Read our Huddersfield v Leicester betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on April 2nd, 2019 at 11:33 p.m.)
Huddersfield’s lifeline was cut in a 2-0 loss out at Crystal Palace on the weekend. They are relegated with six games still to play (including this one). The loss against the Eagles took the Terriers to a four-match losing streak in the top flight. They are back on home soil on the weekend where they are aW2 D2 L12 this season only. They have lost eight of their last nine played at home, the one exception was when they took a 1-0 win over Wolves at the end of February. During their campaign at home, Huddersfield have scored just the seven goals.
Only 38% of games at the John Smith’s Stadium this season have gone over 2.5 goals. In total Huddersfield have failed to score in 56% of their home fixtures and they have lost eight of their sixteen home games to nil. On top of that, they have been losing at the halftime break in nine of their home fixture while they have conceded 62% of their goals at home in the first period of games. Just five times have the Terriers opened the scoring at home. No team has scored fewer EPL goals than the Terriers and no-one has a worse home record.
Leicester were 3-1 home winners over the Terriers in September
The Foxes have won four of the last five meetings (D1)
The Terriers are winless in twelve against Leicester
Last season’s top flight clash at the John Smith’s produced a 1-1 draw
This should be a good game then for Leicester to try and improve their current form. They collected 2-0 home win over Bournemouth on the weekend, leaving them with a three-match winning streak going at the moment. The clean sheet in their win over Bournemouth on the weekend was their first since January 1st this year in the top flight. Leicester have won four of their last five league games now (L1) so are shaping up well. They posted a W6 D3 L7 record on their travels this season in the Premier League.
They are W4 D2 in their six games against sides currently in the bottom seven away from home, so that’s a huge positive too. Leicester have scored 21 goals on their travels, while they have conceded at an average of 1.5 goals per game. They have taken a clean sheet in a quarter of their away fixtures. Both teams have scored in 69% of their away games. Leicester took a 2-1 win at Burnley in their last away game, snapping a run of four away games without a win (D1 L3). Leicester are on a seven-match scoring streak in the league, home and away. They have scored at least two goals in each of their last three played as well.
The Terriers are down and out. Leicester are in good shape at the moment and will have enjoyed that clean sheet on the weekend. They are valuable to go and get another win to nil under their belt this weekend.

Palace start the weekend five points clear of the drop zone so still have some work to do. They have lost two of their last three played. But this is a big opportunity at survival points on the weekend as they welcome bottom side Huddersfield to Selhurst Park. Read our Crystal Palace v Huddersfield betting tips for more.
Crystal Palace 1/2
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on March 24th, 2019 at 10:18 p.m.)
The Eagles were taken down at home in a 2-1 loss by Brighton in their last fixture. That is back to back home losses that the Eagles have suffered. It has not been a great season on home turf from the Eagles at all. They have only produced a W3 D4 L8 in the EPL this term at Selhurst Park. It is well worth noting that two of those three home wins from Palace have been against sides currently in the bottom four. The Eagles have not conceded in any of their three home games against sides in the bottom four at Selhurst Park this term. Overall this season, Palace have scored just 11 home goals.
But their defence hasn’t been all that bad really because they have picked up a clean sheet in 33% of their home fixtures. They have conceded in total, at just over a goal per game. Both teams have scored in just 33% of Palace’s home games. 27% of league fixtures there have gone under 2.5 goals. Palace are on a five-match scoring streak at home, and they haven’t taken a clean sheet in any of their last three. Palace have scored in each of their last ten league games, home and away. The Eagles have conceded 76% of their home goals in the second half of fixtures.
Palace won 1-0 at Huddersfield earlier this season
Both teams have scored in just one of the last seven meetings
Palace lost this corresponding fixture 3-0 last season
Huddersfield have failed to score in their last three against the Eagles in all competitions
It is a three-match losing streak that Huddersfield are back on a the moment. That’s fourteen defeats in their last sixteen games played. Only an astounding miracle prevents them from playing Championship football next season. Last time out they blew a tremendous winning position at 3-1 away at West Ham to lose 4-3. That leaves Huddersfield with a four-match losing streak away from home doing currently and they only managed to score in one of those. The goals at West Ham actually snapped a five-match away sequence in which the Terriers had failed to score.
The Terriers have only netted 11 goals on their travels this season in the top flight. They have conceded at over two goals per game on average with a clean sheet in just 13% of their road games. Their overall away record is W1 D3 L11 this season and they are on a nine-match winless streak away from home in the top flight. Huddersfield have not taken a clean sheet in their last four on the road and they have opened the scoring in only three road games this term. Fulham are the only side in the division with a worse away record than that of Huddersfield’s.
Palace look a good proposition to churn out three points in this home fixture. They have the defensive strengths to keep Huddersfield at bay. The manner of their defeat at West Ham has to have really been heavy for the Terriers to deal with. Home win to nil.

West Ham 8/15
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on March 14th, 2019 at 8.10 p.m.)
West Ham took a bit of a hit last weekend in a 2-0 loss against the relegation-threatened Cardiff. That continued some poor away form that they have been on. They have been in pretty decent shape on home soil though. West Ham have taken back to back home wins in the top flight, beating Newcastle and Fulham. They are undefeated in their last five on home soil (W3 D2) and that is part of an average W7 D3 L5 home record that they have taken this season.
West Ham have averaged 1.5 goals per home game, with a clean sheet in only 20% of their home fixtures. Five of their seven home wins record this season have been by a two-goal margin. West Ham have netted in each of their last five home games, scoring at least two in each of their last two. The Irons have scored 61% of their home goals in the second half of games.
There was a 1-1 draw when the two met back in November
West Ham have won three of the last four meetings (D1)
The Hammers have won their last three at home against the Terriers
Both teams have scored in just two of the last six meetings
The Terriers suffered a 2-0 loss against Bournemouth last weekend. That is back to back defeats from them. Huddersfield have lost seven of their last eight leagues going. In their last four games, home and away, the Terriers have managed to produce just the one goal. Away from home, their record for the season is at W1 D3 L10. They are on a three-match losing streak on their travels.
They haven’t scored in any of their last five road games and in total this season they have only managed the eight away goals. Each to their last four games, home and away have ended under 2.5 goals. Fulham are the only side with a worse away record than the Terriers. They are the lowest scoring side in the top flight by a long way though.
The Hammers can produce enough here on home soil to give themselves three points. The challenge of Huddersfield isn’t likely to be testing enough to deny the Londoners. Home win.

After their 1-0 home win over Wolves, Huddersfield had their bubble burst when they went to Brighton last weekend and lost by that very same scoreline. That was their 21st defeat from their 29 league games played this season. The home form of Huddersfield this season in the top flight reads W2 L2 L11. Across those 15 home games played, Huddersfield have only managed the seven goals scored. They have conceded at an average of 1.5 goals per home game.
The win over Wolves in their last home game snapped a seven match losing streak that they were on at the John Smith’s Stadium. Just 40% of their league home games have made it over 2.5 goals. Home and away, Huddersfield have scored just the two goals in their last eight. If they were to pull off a win in this game, while Fulham were to lose against Leicester, the Terriers would actually move off the bottom of the table on goal difference.
Bournemouth were 2-1 winners at home over the Terriers earlier this season
Huddersfield won this corresponding fixture 4-1 last season
Six of the last seven meetings have actually gone over 2.5 goals
There have been 15 goals in the last three meetings at Huddersfield
Bournemouth’s inconsistencies must be really frustrating for boss Eddie Howe. The Cherries have taken just one point from their last five league outings, that point coming in a home draw against Wolves towards the end of February. It has been a season to forget for Bournemouth out on their top-flight travels as they are just W3 L11 away from home this season. They have racked up nine consecutive away defeats on their travels currently.
There has been a lack of goals from them as they have produced just two goals in their last seven away games. In total Bournemouth have produced 13 away goals in their 14 games. The problem has been their defence which has conceded at an average of 2.5 goals per away game. 71% of Bournemouth away games this season have ended up over 2.5 goals. The Cherries have just the two clean sheets away from home this season. It really has been poor stuff from them and Bournemouth have also been losing at the halftime break in nine of their road fixtures.
Bournemouth have a good chance at snapping themselves out of their poor form. They may only get the job done by the one goal margin though, bearing in mind Huddersfield’s recent run of results.

The drop in form that Brighton have had recently has started to raise some relegation concerns for them. They get a chance to put some big survival points on the board on the weekend as they play host to relegation-favourites Huddersfield. Read our Brighton v Huddersfield betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 27th, 2019 at 6:06 p.m.)
Brighton were going really strongly at home over the first part of the season. However, since the middle of December things have started going a little bit sour for them. Brighton are just W1 D2 L3 in their last six league home games. So they have started to get badly exposed and their overall drop in form has seen them slide back towards the relegation zone.
After a loss at Leicester on Tuesday, they have one point in six, home and away. But this really is an opportunity on home soil that they can’t afford to miss. Overall this season Brighton have a record of W5 D4 L4.
Three of the four losses which they have taken at the Amex Stadium have been against current top six sides. Two of their last three home losses have been against Liverpool and Chelsea. Brighton have averaged 1.2 goals per home game this season and less than half of their home fixtures have gone over 2.5 goals.
The Seagulls have a clean sheet in 31% of their home fixtures this term. Four of the five home victories which they have recorded have been by a one-goal margin only. 70% of all of their league points this season have been earned on home soil and they badly need a big boost of a win in this one.
Brighton earned a 2-1 away win at Huddersfield in December
From three previous EPL meetings, things are even with one win each and one draw
Brighton are undefeated in their last six home games against the Terriers
Both teams have scored in three of the last four meetings
A 1-0 home win over Wolves on Tuesday night gave Huddersfield their first win under new boss Jan Siewert and it snapped a long losing streak of form that they were on. Huddersfield had only claimed one point from their previous 14 games before that success over Wolves.
But they are heading back out on the road this weekend in search of what will be just their second league victory away from home this term. Incidentally, their only away win happened against Wolves.
In their last seven games out on their travels, Huddersfield have managed to claim just the one point. They have not scored in any of their last four away games either. In total, the Terriers have produced just eight away goals this season while they have conceded at over two goals per game on average away from home.
Just twice this season have the Terriers recorded an away clean sheet. The Terriers have conceded at least two goals in each of their last two away games and Fulham are the only side with a worse away record in the division than Huddersfield.
Brighton really need come up with something to steady the ship a little bit and we can see them having just enough to get over the finish line in this one. Probably it will be by nothing more than a one-goal margin though and they have a good shot at a clean sheet.
