Analysis of Southampton

After 5 wins, 6 draws and 6 losses, the home team is in the 12th position, havinf won 21 points so far. In the last match, they have lost at home against Tottenham Hotspur by (0‑2), after in the previous match they have lost (1‑0) an away match against Crystal Palace. This is a team that, oddly enough, has had better results in away matches than at home, since in the last 30 matches they register 7 wins, 4 draws and 4 losses in away matches; against 6 wins, 4 draws and 5 losses at their stadium. For the league, Southampton won 11 points out of 27 possible points, after 3 wins, 2 draws and 4 losses in the last 9 home matches. They haven't been very strong defensively, since they have suffered goals in 8 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored frequently, since they have scored goals in 7 of the last 10 matches for this competition.

They have conceded the first goal in 8 of their 17 matches for this competition, and have only turned the score around in 1.

Southampton come discouraged to this match after a 0-2 loss, at home, against Tottenham. The home team have big difficulty in the transition from the attack to the defense, once that the most of the goals are conceded in counterattack. Southampton usually score slight goals, despite to create many danger situations. They have finishing weaknesses. 
One of the best qualities of the home team is the air challenge. The senegalese Mané is the player more capable to unbalance the opponent defense, and his best quality is the speed. 
Rodriguez, Gardos and Forster won't play this match by injury. 

Confirmed Lineup: M. Stekelenburg, V. van Dijk, R. Martina, José Fonte, R. Bertrand, J. Ward-Prowse, S. Davis, V. Wanyama, J. Clasie, S. Long, S. Mané.
