Hull vs Southampton Predictions

Hull City fans might have hoped that their League Cup triumph over Bristol City last week would have spurred the team on to an improved performance in the Premier League, especially with a win over relatively winnable fixtures coming up ahead of them.

However, it looks like that hope was unfounded. They lost yet again to Watford last weekend to make it six losses on the bounce in the Premier League and eight without a win as well. This has pushed them down to 18th in the Premier League with just eleven points from their ten games so far.

Their injury list just seems to be continually growing, and at the moment their biggest miss is Robert Snodgrass. The winger has been pretty much their only attacking threat recently, but they will have to wait another couple of weeks before he returns. With them relying so heavily on him there’s no surprise that they have failed to score in three of their last four Premier League games.

Southampton’s Premier League unbeaten streak came to an end last weekend as Chelsea humbled them in their own back yard, but they have bounced back with confidence in midweek as they came from a goal behind to beat Inter Milan 2-1.

This made it three wins, one draw, and two defeats in their last six outings in all competitions and keeps them top of their Europa League group. Despite their dodgy start to the season they are looking right at home at the moment.

Away from home Southampton have maintained their excellent defence, but up front they have faltered a bit. They have kept three clean sheets in their last five but failed to score in three as well. In fairness these were matches against Hapoel Be’er Sheva, Leicester, and Inter Milan. They should have much more luck against Hull, who have conceded eight goals in their last three home matches.

Charlie Austin could well be the man to take advantage of this weak defence. The striker has netted four Premier League goals in his six starts so far this season, and he’ll be coming up against a Hull side who have proven to be pretty weak in the air up until now. Backing him to score anytime at 5/4 looks a good option.

In general I don’t expect this to be a high scoring game though. Hull have failed to score in three of their last four home matches and are facing a stern Southampton defence, so backing a Southampton Clean Sheet at 11/10 looks good. I’m going for a 2-0 win for Southampton at 7/1.
