Southampton will travel to Vitality Stadium to face Bournemouth in their Premier League clash on Sunday afternoon.
The Saints are going through a bad patch at the moment, with Mauricio Pellegrino’s side managing only one win in their last five Premier League games.
They are heading into the match on the back of a 2-1 defeat against Manchester City, and will be looking to get something out of this game.
Bournemouth find themselves 16th on the Premier League table, but Eddie Howe’s side will be charged up ahead of the derby clash.
They lost their last game against Burnley at home, but prior to that, they have managed wins against Newcastle and Huddersfield, and drew against Swansea.
Former Liverpool player turned football pundit Paul Ince says that both the sides will be playing with pressures off for the derby clash, and hence, one can expect an enjoyable game.
Ince predicts that Bournemouth will nick it, and goes for a 2-1 scoreline in favour of the home side.
"A Derby game between two good sides who both should be playing with the pressure off. For that reason, I expect a decent match, but fancy Bournemouth to nick it," writes Ince for the Express.
