Southampton vs Aston Villa Match Preview and Team News
On October 30th, Southampton recorded a slender 1:0 victory against Watford away from home in a Premier League encounter. The team has not had the bitter taste of defeat in four consecutive matches with a total of 2 victories and two draws. The Saints’ performance has not been greatly affected by the factor of playing at home or away in their last ten encounters. These resulted in 2 home wins and two away victories. The majority of Southampton’s ten most recent meetings ended in a draw, as that has been the case in 6 of them. Of their last five games, two resulted in over 2.5 goals, and three had both involved teams scoring. The Saints managed to keep two clean sheets during that period while they scored at least one goal in all matches. Will Smallbone (Knee Injury), Armando Broja (Ankle Injury), and Sam McQueen (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) will not be able to play for Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhüttl. James Ward-Prowse has excellent ball control, he can play in several positions, and every team needs such a player. Moussa Djenepo enjoys the pitch, and when he receives the ball and moves towards the goal, the opponent has problems.
Aston Villa’s last match was against West Ham United on Sunday, and it finished in a heavy 1:4 home loss. The club is now on a run of four defeats in a row. The home crowd, usually referred to as the “12th player”, have failed to significantly impact Aston Villa’s recent ten meetings, as they ended in 5 home wins and three away wins. All but one of the team’s five last matches featured over 2.5 goals and also four witnessed goals at both ends of the field. Aston Villa kept one clean sheet, and they scored one or more goals in all of those encounters. Due to a completely injury-free squad ready to go, the Aston Villa boss Dean Smith has zero fitness worries to speak of ahead of this game. Ollie Watkins is a great striker, and he scored 14 goals last season. Leon Bailey is a great player, he creates a lot of problems for his opponents, and the greatest virtue of this guy is speed.
