Southampton faces West Bromwich on Sunday, October 4th at St. Mary's Stadium for an English Premier League match.
Southampton earned its first Premier League win of the season over Burnely on the road in its most recent match. The final score of that one was 1-0, as it was a very typical Burnley and Southampton match with defense leading the way. Danny Ings was the lone goal scorer in that match, as he was able to score his goal in the 5th minute for Southampton. Southampton's defense was able to hold Burnley to 10 total shots and only two shots on target in the win, as it was undoubtedly Southampton's best match of the season. Southampton is still in 15th place in the Premier League and the club owns a -3 goal differential thus far this season. Southampton will look to earn back-to-back victories, but instead, this match will be home.
West Bromwich has had a rough time in the Premier League so far this season, as the club owns a 0-1-2 record. West Bromwich was able to take a draw with Chelsea, but that was a match in which West Bromwich had a 3-0 lead at halftime. West Bromwich has to be hurting after blowing such a big lead at home against a titan like Chelsea, as a win in that match could have propelled the club to something big in the Premier League. West Bromwich will look to play a full 90+ minute match in this one, and the club will also search for its first victory of the season.
The last time Southampton and West Bromwich met was on February 17th of 2018. In that match, Southampton was victorious by the final score of 2-1 on the road in the English FA Cup.
Both teams can use recent solid performances to their advantage in this match, and both teams will look to boost itself out of the cellar of the Premier League table. I like this match to be hard-fought, but in the end, I like Southampton's chances at St. Mary's due to experience and talent.
