After going on a four match losing streak Hull City has picked up back to back results with a 1-1 home draw followed up by their weekend 0-2 away win over Sunderland.
The win over Sunderland was certainly helped by the home side having to play with ten men from the fourth minute onward. Hull took 25 shots with 9 on target which is significantly higher than their season average of 12 shots with 3 on target per game.
The Saints will certainly be disappointed with their weekend 2-2 draw against Stoke. Especially considering how dominant they were and the fact that they went up 2-1 and had a whole second half to break the deadlock.
Still, it was a positive result from a team that is solidly in ninth in the table with 36 points.
Southampton’s away form has been decent with just one loss to a team below them in the table this season, the 1-0 to Norwich way back in August. They have drawn four matches on the road this EPL season, but also have four wins.
My pick is a Southampton win, however, with the way that Hull has been playing recently, it will not be easy. The Tigers have been inconsistent for parts of the season, but have managed to get back to back results.
In their previous six meetings Southampton has five wins with one Hull win. The reverse fixture at Southampton resulted in a 4-1 Saints win.
Betting Odds (Ladbrokes):
Hull win: 3.00; Draw: 3.20; Southampton win: 2.40
Form: Hull (L, L, L, L, D, W) Southampton (L, W, D, D, W, D)
Prediction: Hull City 1 – 2 Southampton
