Southampton vs Norwich Match Preview and Team News
The last two outings haven’t been easy for Norwich, and they will be looking to improve in their away trip to Southampton. A fine run has seen Southampton scale into the top half of the league and going into this game, they have 32 points, in 10th place, while Norwich has 17 points, in 20th place. Southampton has managed to score in each of their last 11 matches, while in seven of them, they’ve scored two or more goals. The Saints are coming from a 2-0 win over Everton, a great improvement on their defensive performances in recent times. James Ward-Prowse plays well in the middle of the park, and he does not allow the opponent much action. Armando Broja enjoys the pitch, and when he receives the ball and moves towards the goal, the opponent has a problem. Nathan Tella (Groin Injury), Alex McCarthy (Thigh Problems), and Lyanco (Hamstring Injury) will be missing for Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhüttl.
Norwich will hope for an easier outing after taking on Manchester City and Liverpool in their last two matches. They weren’t expected to win those two matches, and heading to this game winless in the previous three games has seen Norwich sink to the foot of the league table. The confidence in three straight wins earlier has waned, but settling at the base of the standings should be enough to motivate Norwich against this Southampton side that hasn’t also had a very good season. An improvement at Norwich that can’t be overlooked is the fact that they have some consistency in scoring and have failed to score in just one of their last six. Billy Gilmour found the right role in the team, he moves great in the middle of the field, and it isn’t easy to take the ball away from this guy. The bench players are expected to show as much as possible and impose themselves on the coach for the starting lineup. Due to a completely injury-free squad to pick from, the Norwich City manager Dean Smith does not have any fitness concerns to speak of before this game.
