Southampton vs Watford – Southampton is currently tenth in the table, and with ten matchdays remaining in the competition, their goal would be to finish in the top ten. They could make a push for one of the European spots, but it appears impractical at the moment.
Furthermore, they have performed admirably at home this season, and this momentum will undoubtedly come to their aid tomorrow.
Meanwhile, Watford are 19th in a 20-team table, just outside the relegation zone. They are also a recently promoted team, and they have shown signs of making a quick return to the Championship since the start of the season.
Furthermore, they have a poor head-to-head record against this rival over the years.
Based on these observations, Southampton should win tomorrow at St. Mary’s Stadium.
