Southampton will be looking to return to winning ways when they take on Swansea City at home in the Premier League this afternoon.
The Saints will head into the clash at St. Mary’s Stadium on the back of a 3-2 home defeat to Crystal Palace in the fourth round of the FA Cup.
Despite the shock defeat at St. Mary’s last weekend, Southampton remain a very good team and will be backed by many to bounce back in style today.
Ronald Koeman’s side are currently fourth in the Premier League table with 42 points from 22 matches and will leapfrog Manchester United into third if they win today.
Meanwhile, Swansea are going through a bad spell at the moment and find themselves 10th in the league standings with 30 points from 22 games.
The Swans have looked susceptible at the back and also appear to be struggling for goals up front. However, the Welsh outfit will not be easy pushovers.
It promises to be an exciting game at St. Mary’s, and here is how Southampton and Swansea will line up.
