The last game of the Premier League weekend will see Premier League new boys Watford host Southampton at Vicarage Road. Southampton come into this game off the back of a couple of disappointing results with a home loss against Everton followed by a draw with Danish side Midtjylland. Southampton have a quality side but they will need to put together some performances as they are struggling at the moment. Ronald Koeman will be looking for more from Pelle, Tadic and Long as they look to get their season back on track. Jay Rodriguez played well midweek though and his return from injury is complete Rodriguez will be a key player for Southampton and his partnership with Pelle could be key to how the Saints season progresses.
Watford have two points from two games in the league but having led Everton twice they probably should have a win and a draw to date. Either way though Watford have played quite well thus far and will be looking to get their first win of the season on Sunday when they host Southampton. Ronald Koeman has spent most of the week denying the rumour that Mane will be joining Manchester United and the Saints will be keen to keep a hold of the winger who had such a positive impact on the team and club last season.
This one is priced up correctly as a coin flip and looks to me to be one of those games that could go either way. I am going to take both teams to score here though as I think both teams have quality attackers and should edge the opposition defences.
