      Southampton vs Stoke Predictions

      Southampton struggled to adapt to life without some of their key players at the beginning of the season. The departure of Morgan Schneiderlin, Nathaniel Clyne, and Tob Alderweireld combined with the injuries of Fraser Forster and Florin Gardos to create a very unstable Southampton back line.

      But they have finally recovered from these losses, and currently find themselves as one of the most in form sides in the Premier League.

      They are currently unbeaten in eight matches in all competitions, with six of those eight games ending in victory for the south coast outfit.

      This has seen them rise to 7th in the Premier League table, and a win on Saturday could send them into the Europa League qualification positions.

      Stoke aren’t doing badly themselves though, after also enduring a difficult start to the season. They failed to win any of their first seven games in all competitions.

      But they, like their opponents, have won six of their last eight games, losing once and drawing once to see themselves climb up to 12th in the table. If they win on Saturday they could move as high as 8th.

      Florin Gardos and Fraser Forster are still out injured for the hosts, with Virgil van Dijk and Jay Rodriguez also likely to join them on the sidelines. Stoke will be without Shay Given, Joselu, and Muniesa on Saturday.

      Southampton have been in excellent attacking form recently, with the likes of Graziano Pelle and Sadio Mane both hitting the heights we expect of them. They have scored two or more goals in seven of their last nine fixtures, which make odds of 8/11 for Southampton Over 1.5 Team Goals look really good value. I expect the hosts to win as well, so I’m also going for a 3-1 Southampton win at 14/1.
