Southampton vs Hull Prediction and Football Tips
Premier League football tips – Southampton vs Hull prediction.
Seventh placed Southampton look set for Europa League football next season, whether that is enough to keep a hold of their best players we will find out in the summer, but it is certainly a step up for the Saints who looked doomed after the exodus the club suffered. Hull City have found themselves in a relegation scrap and with such a tough run in, they will have to count every game as a six pointer.
Southampton: 4-2-3-1 formation: Davis; Bertrand, Alderweireld, Fonte, Clyne; Wanyama, Schneiderlin; Mane, Tadic, Long; Pelle
Hull: 3-5-2 formation: McGregor; Dawson, Bruce, McShane; Elmohamady, Diame, Livermore, Huddlestone, Brady; N’Doye, Hernandez
Southampton have been struggling to score goals as of late and over the last ten games, Ronald Koeman’s men have scored less than a goal a game with 0.7, while Hull have a similar number with 0.9.
However, Southampton have had a mean defence all season and that similar vein of form has continued as they have conceded less than a goal a game with 0.9, while Hull have conceded 1.6 goals per game over the last 10.
The next statistic is unsurprising as Southampton’s last 10 games have involved only one game with more than 2.5 goals, on the other hand Hull have been involved in five.
The last time the two sides met, Southampton ran out 1-0 winners thanks to a Victor Wanyama long range effort.
This is a good opportunity for Southampton to pick up some points, it’s difficult to see past the Saints picking up all three points.
