Southampton and Stoke set for a nervy afternoon

St Mary's crowd will be tense

Southampton have had a frustrating season
1 of 1

Premier League
3pm Saturday

There have been a lot of tense games between relegation rivals in recent weeks and another is on the cards at St Mary's Stadium where Southampton and Stoke may cancel each other out.

Both teams could do with a win but Saints haven't taken three points at home since November and Stoke haven't bagged an away win since October.

The home crowd are likely to be nervous and it will be tough for Southampton to execute their preferred passing style against a Stoke side playing with plenty of energy and enthusiasm under Paul Lambert.

Recommendation
Draw
1pt 14-5 Betway, Coral
