With Brighton & Hove Albion sitting a clear 14 places above them in the table, Southampton won't feel totally dejected with their 3-1 away defeat by them last time out. In that game they had 38% possession and managed 5 attempts on goal, with 1 on target, compared to Brighton & Hove Albion who had 26 attempts and 8 on target.
With 8 goals scored in their last 6, they might have expected more points from that run of matches, but having conceded 16 goals along the way, things haven't been going their way points-wise. They have been unable to score at home in 4 of their last 6 games, and they have also failed to keep a clean sheet in their last 11 games overall.
Southampton will not be enjoying their recent run of poor form, having lost 5 league games in a row no wins in 12 games.
