Southampton play in the Premier League against Fulham at St Mary’s on Wednesday. The game sees two club’s who are threatened with relegation facing off against each other and both will be looking for nothing less than three points.
The Saints head into the game in 18th position with 24 points from 27 games. A win could see them move out of the drop zone as they are currently just one point behind 17th placed Cardiff City. The South Coast club can head into the game with confidence as they have a brilliant home record against their opponents. They are unbeaten in 19 home league games against the Cottagers which dates back to 1935 as reported by the BBC.
Southampton desperately need a win in order to boost their confidence as they look to avoid the drop this season. They have not won during their past four games and have lost their last two.
However, the Cottagers did win when the club’s faced off in the league last November as they won 3-2. If they prevail this time, Claudio Ranieri’s side will complete a league double over the Saints for the first time ever.
Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side will have to make do without the services of key striker Danny Ings due to a hamstring problem as reported by the BBC.
The report added that striker Michael Obafemi is also likely to miss out also due to a hamstring problem while Mario Lemina is another player who will likely not play a part in the game.
