Southampton vs Fulham: Predictions & Odds

Here are our Premier League predictions for bottom-of-the-table Southampton's home game against mid-table Fulham. The Saints are likely to have their Premier League fate decided this weekend with the club all but relegated heading into this weekend's round of fixtures. Fulham head into the game on the back of a 5-3 victory against another of the relegation battlers Leicester and will be looking to dish out more pain on Saturday.

Both Teams to Score

Our first Southampton vs Fulham prediction is for both teams to find the back of the net. Three of the last five league meetings between these two clubs have ended with both teams scoring, including Fulham's 2-1 win over the Saints back in December. Both teams have also scored in four of Southampton's and four of Fulham's last six outings in the Premier League, adding further weight to our prediction.

Over 2.5 Goals

Our second Southampton vs Fulham prediction concerns the total goals scored by both teams. Over 2.5 goals have been scored three of their last five league meetings between Southampton and Fulham, including the pair's last two head-to-heads. At least three goals have been scoed in four of Southampton's and four of Fulham's last six fixtures, so you can see why we're backing goals in this game.

Southampton vs Fulham Lineups

Southampton

Southampton had to give their all away at Nottingham Forest last time out and while they looked good going forward, the visitors were once again let down by their defending. Forest ran out 4-03 winners in what truly was a seven-goal thriller at The City Ground, a result that practically confirmed their relegation from the Premier League. Southampton now have to win all three remaining matches and hope that the teams above them fail to pick up any more points if they want to make the great escape. Perraud, Salisu, Livramento, Larios and Bella-Kotchap could all miss out this weekend through injury.

Predicted Lineup – McCarthy (GK), Bednarek, Walker-Peters, Lyanco, Armstrong, Ward-Prowse, Maitland-Niles, Alcaraz, Lavia, Walcott & Adams

Fulham

Fulham played host to Leicester at the weekend with the two teams playing out an eight-goal epic. Goals from Willian, Vinicius, and two from Cairney put the home side 4-0 up by the 51st-minute. The Foxes pulled a goal back before Willian scored his second to make it 5-1. Leicester pushed forward late on, scoring twice to make the final scoreline 5-3 and edged the Foxes closer to relegation. Pereira, Ream, and Kurzawa are injured and won't feature this weekend but Mitrovic does return following a long suspension.

Predicted Lineup – Leno (GK), Tete, Adarabioyo, Diop, Robinson, Cairney, Palhinha, Reed, Wilson, Willian & Vinícius

Player to Watch: Aleksandar Mitrovic

Fulham's 28-year-old striker returns to the Fulham squad this weekend following a long suspension and it will be interesting to see if he goes straight back into the starting lineup or has to settle for a place on the bench.

Despite a long period out of action, Mitrovic remains the top scorer for Fulham this season with 11-goals, three of which have come from the penalty spot.

We're backing Mitrovic to make an impact in this game, a game that will likely see Southampton's relegation from the Premier League confirmed.
