Match preview

A Southampton outfit desperate for a return to winning ways will act as hosts on Monday, December 26th, as part of the return of the Premier League to screens across the globe.

The struggling Saints’ upcoming opponents? High-flying Brighton & Hove Albion.

The clash, on the surface, looks a largely straightforward one to call, from the outside looking in.

Southampton, of course, have endured nothing short of a nightmare campaign to date, en route to wins in just three of the club’s fifteen outings.

Each of their last three fixtures, meanwhile, culminated in defeat, a stretch which cost long-time boss Ralph Hasenhuttl his job last month, and has since left the incoming Nathan Jones with a major job on his hands in turning things around.

Such woes, in turn, mean that Monday’s hosts remain firmly entrenched in the relegation zone, sitting 2nd from bottom and two points from safety.

Safe to say, then, that the upcoming visitors to St. Mary’s will no doubt fancy their chances of ultimately emerging with all three points.

Unlike Southampton, Brighton have enjoyed a fine term thus far, currently sitting in the dizzying heights of 7th owing to a record of six wins and three draws from 14 attempts.

The Seagulls will make the trip to Hampshire in search of a bounce-back result, though, after following up a home defeat at the hands of Aston Villa in their most recent league outing with an exit from the League Cup in midweek.

The impending absences of all of Adam Webster, Alexis Mac Allister and Danny Welbeck, meanwhile, will hand further hope to an underdog Southampton side.

Still, upon the final whistle sounding on Monday evening, Brighton should be in possession of enough quality to get the job done at the expense of their misfiring hosts.
