Our prediction for this Premier League match:
After suffering an unexpected loss to Newcastle United, Southampton will be aiming to return to winning ways when they host Watford to their St. Mary’s Stadium on Matchday 29. The Saints are stuck in the middle of the standings, but they are surely capable of matching Watford in front of home fans. Djenepo is pushing for a start, while all Lyanco, McCarthy, and Tella should miss out with injuries.
The Hornets, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 4-0 loss to Watford, which is probably the main reason why we are tempted to put our money on the hosts. Kabasele is likely to replace Kiko in the starting XI, whilst all Sarr, N’Koulou, and Ngakia remain in the recovery room. In the first half of the season Southampton defeated Watford thanks to Che Adams’ goal, and we predict that the history is going to repeat itself.
Highlighted Player (Fraser Forster):
Originating from Hexham, Fraser Forster is an English goalkeeper who spent his early career at Newcastle United, but surprisingly did not make a single Premier League appearance during the seven years at St James’ Park. Forster first showed promise during the loan spell with Norwich City, but it was the stint with Celtic that earned him wide acclaim and saw him become an England international.
After spending four years at Parkhead, the highly rated goalkeeper returned to the Premier League to sign for Southampton and he has since acted as club’s number one goalkeeper. Forster has been a member of the England national team since 2013, usually acting as a back up for Joe Hart, making a handful of appearances in international friendlies.
Forster was in the Three Lions squad at the 2014 World Cup and Euro 2016, and with quite a few of good years in front of him, the towering goalkeeper should get the opportunity to win few more England caps before he retires from football.
