Southampton have had a terrible start to the season and at the midway point they look to have settled the ship and turned things around, the Saints though face a tough task against a very solid West Brom team on Saturday. Tony Pulis is a terrific manager and has his team working extremely hard in every game they play, with a talented but limited squad Pulis has managed to get his team to over perform. Last week against Chelsea, the baggies came from behind twice to nick a draw at Stamford Bridge. They face another tough away game here against Southampton but with Berahino, Mclean, Mcauley and FLetcher you cna be guaranteed that WEst Brom will not be lacking in the effort Department.
Southampton have looked liek a team that was close to turning the corner in recent weeks. A terrific home win over Arsenal in which they destroyed the league leaders was followed by three losses in a row but again Southampton turned it on midweek and were impressive in a 2-0 win over high flying Watford. A game that many would have predicted to be tricky was actually negotiated very well by the Saints. Ronald Koeman will turn to Pelle, Tadic and Long , his three best attacking players to lead the way with Mane in behidn supporting from midfield.
This is a tough one but I think both teams to score here looks a good take and is my value bet in this one. take both teams to score and cash another winner. Southampton have scored in eleven of their last thirteen home games and West Brom have scored in nine of their last ten games. Both teams look to have an advantage on the offensive side of the ball and I think both teams to score stands out here for me.
