Southampton vs Norwich PredictionSouthampton vs Norwich Prediction and Preview for Wednesday's EPL fixture. Two relegation-threatened Premier League sides will be battling for the right to play top-flight football come next season when Southampton welcome fellow strugglers Norwich for a crunch clash tomorrow night.
Match status: 2019/20 Premier League - Matchweek 15
Kick-off:
Venue: St. Mary's Stadium (Southampton)
Southampton have been overly underwhelming so far this season, sitting 18th on the log having garnered twelve points from a possible forty-two. They are a single point above Norwich City in 19th place, with the Canaries spotting a slightly better goal difference rate than their opposition.

Given this is a battle between two very weak teams, home advantage is likely to play a major factor on who comes out on top, placing Southampton safely in the driving seat.

With both sides struggling to find the back of net, there would be no surprise if the game ends in a stalemate. Expect the battle to be in midfield as both teams will relish a point in this fixture given the precarious situation they have themselves in at the moment.

Southampton v Norwich Team News

Last time out against Watford, Southampton supporters will be forgiven for thinking they had lost the game having gone behind very early in the game and failing to muster a comeback as the clock wound down.

However, the Saints rallied late in the game, scoring two quick-fire goals to complete a stunning comeback as well as clinch maximum points against the Hornets.

Meanwhile, Norwich were impressive on the last match-day holding the might of Arsenal to a draw, salvaging a point in the process. The Gunner’s off-field issues must have given the Canaries some confidence as they headed into the game and they took full advantage.

It goes without saying that the relegation candidates fared really well on the last match-day and will be looking to carry that form into this fixture. Both sides are in dire need of points and will sweat blood in a bid to clinch maximum points.

Likely, both teams with take the cautious approach in this game, and taking into account their struggles in front of goal, chances are very high for the match to have only a few number of goals.

The form book has it that the hosts have been in awful form on home turf but considering the stature of opponents they have taken on successively in recent weeks, they should be spared a lecture for their off-form.

Any Premier League team will struggle with a fixture schedule pitting them against likes of Everton, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester United and Leicester City successively. This tough schedule is enough reason for the Saints to justify their recent poor results.

However, with a game against struggling Norwich on the cards on Wednesday, head coach Ralph Hasenhuttl will already be licking his lips as he aims to secure all three points against the newly-promoted side.

Finally, Norwich have been, by far, the worst team on the road and one of the worst teams in the Premier League this campaign. They have managed to register only three goals and one victory in all of their away fixtures this season.

Injured or Suspended Players:

Southampton: Stuart Armstrong.

Norwich: Timm Klose, Grant Hanley, Josip Drmic.

Southampton vs Norwich Predictions

With the visitors spotting a disappointing and horrible form away from home, it goes without saying that Southampton are favourites to steal the three points here.

With home advantage under their belt, Southampton will be looking to get their season right back on track, beginning with a win against fellow Premier League strugglers Norwich. This game does not promise goals but the home side should clinch maximum points via a lone goal.
