Southampton vs Aston Villa: Preview, Betting tips and Predictions - Premier League Matchweek 27
Southampton vs Aston Villa
SAT 22 FEB 2020
St. Mary's Stadium
Southampton are the worst team on home ground, they have lost eight times in front of the St Mary’s fans and that is the reason they could be drawn into the relegation talks again.
Aston Villa are the number one candidate for the drop but they show lots of fights.
They were unlucky to watch Heung Min Son wheel away after Engels failed to control a long Davison Sanchez long ball.
Villa wouldn’t like to look at history books on this one, they have failed to beat Southampton in any of their last five.
Their last point was in the 1-1 draw at St Mary’s in 2015, that was the season the Villa Park outfit went down.
Losing to Burnley last weekend was tough on the Saints, they labored hard and could have gotten a point had VAR been kind to them following a penalty appeal.
All eyes will be on Danny Ings who has scored 15 goals in the league this season.
Jack Grealish will continue to lead the line for Villa, their super Jack has written himself into reckoning with strong showings and would take more than staying up for Villa to keep him in the summer.
Betting prediction: Saints to win or draw
