Match Preview

After a positive start to the season Stoke have been very poor. They produced a great result to grab a draw against Man United, but have lost all 3 competitive fixtures since that fixture. Stoke have slipped to 16th in the table and are  just 1 point above the relegation places. They are missing Shawcross from their defence and Jese has been quiet since his emphatic arrival. In 6 league fixtures they have scored just 5 goals. Their only victory was a 1-0 win at home where they have lost 1, drawn 1 and won 1. They’ve kept just a single clean sheet and are struggling to keep sides out as well as putting their own chances away. Crouch is still playing regularly which shows their inability to find a goal scorer. Southampton are 11th in the table and are 3 points ahead of Stoke going into this fixture. They’ve struggled to score goals and the new manager hasn’t been able to rectify that problem. They lost 0-1 at home against Man United failing to build on their slender away win against Crystal Palace. They have the majority of their squad available with just Targett missing out, and need to improve on their recent total of just 4 points in the last 4 games. Away from home they have 1 win and 1 draw, they’ve scored just 1 goal and conceded 0. They have score 0.67 goals per game and their top scorer is Austin with just the single goal. This game should be a low scoring affair. Both managers will want a win, with Stoke having the home advantage and Southampton the marginally better form. The home team has won just once in the last 6 league fixtures and that trend looks likely to continue.
