I thought I would open the teaser text with that interesting statline about Southampton producing three amazing 2-2 draws within their last five games. Mauricio Pochettino's team have been scintillating and awful at different times in the past three weeks from the truly amazing performance against Arsenal to the indifferent performance of the weekend against Stoke. Southampton are a really hard working team, they press high when not in possession and attack with pace and guile when in possession. Lambert, lallana Shaw and Rodriguez are having career years and playing terrific football on their day they provide Southampton with enough attacking force to beat most teams.
Steve Bruce's Hull have been going through an up and down month but the one thing that has been consistant is the lack of goals in their games, Hull have now gone nine games straight with two or less goals and I'm thinking that tomorrow could be the day that run comes to an end. The addition of Jelavich and Long during the January transfer window looks to have been an inspired move by Steve Bruce and with three goals in two games between the twomarksmen things seems to be working out well.
I'm liking the overs here, Southampton look dangerous going forward but have shown frailties at the back. Hull have started to look like a team capable of taking advantage of such frailties and with the pace of Long and the natural finishing ability of Jelavich I think Hull will see more goals in the near future. I like both teams to score here and I think we will also see a winner, possibly coming from the inform Southampton. Take the overs here and follow me on twitter@antonpippo
