Southampton will face Newcastle, West Brom, Brighton, Burnley and Liverpool in their next five Premier League games.
Southampton have made a stuttering start to their 2017/18 Premier League campaign. They have won only two games so far, and find themselves 12th in the league table.
The results must improve after the international break. The Saints have some interesting games coming up, and should start capitalizing on home performances from here on.
Southampton vs Newcastle (Home)
Mauricio Pellegrino’s side are heading into this match on the back of two straight defeats. However, it’s time for them to regroup and build a momentum.
Rafa Benitez’s Newcastle have shown great fighting spirit in their earlier matches, but have suffered two away defeats already.
Southampton vs West Brom (Home)
Like Newcastle, West Brom have won just one game away from home this season, and have suffered two defeats.
Last time when West Brom visited St Mary’s, they won 2-1. Expect a draw here.
Brighton vs Southampton (Away)
These are the games Southampton must win to ensure they finish within the top half of the table. Brighton won their last two matches at home, and could make it three in a row.
Southampton vs Burnley (Home)
Sean Dyche’s team has shocked everyone with their massive progress this season. They have taken points against the likes of Chelsea, Tottenham, Liverpool and Everton – all away from home, and could come away with a handy point here as well.
Liverpool vs Southampton (Away)
Since 2012/13 Southampton have won just once at Anfield in the Premier League. Last season, both the games ended in a frustrating 0-0 draw. Can they frustrate Liverpool and get a point at Merseyside this time again?
