Southampton are travelling to Hertfordshire for their Premier League fixture against Watford tomorrow. It looks like Marco Silva’s men have dropped their hands from the steering wheel and are on their way to the bottom half of the table.
A 1-2 loss to rock bottom Swansea City at home was shocking for all the fans at Vicarage Road. Silva’s men looked lethargic and did not take their chances to kill the game off. Instead, they allowed the Swans to snatch three points away with two late goals.
They also got completely outclassed by Manchester City at the Etihad and the manager was left pondering over the future of the side.
But they are still in the 10th spot and have been blessed with a matchup against a team who are struggling in the bottom half of the Premier League. Southampton are on a 9-game winless streak and have dropped steeply from their promising start to the campaign. The club has just lost their best defender in Virgil van Dijk and are facing a few injury problems themselves.
The Watford team is also crippled by multiple injuries and are not their strongest self. If the Saints can locate the opposition’s weak spots they can cause an upset away from home.
