Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Southampton will be looking to extend their unbeaten run in the Premier League when they host Watford at their St. Mary’s Stadium. The Saints played out a goalless draw with newcomers Huddersfield Town in their last league fixture, but they are widely expected to pick up all three points from Saturday’s football match against the Hornets. Southampton are a real force to be reckoned with at home and we predict that they are going to record their second win of the season. Watford will be without full-back Miguel Britos in Saturday’s football match against Mauricio Pellegino’s troops as he was sent off in a goalless draw with Brighton and, taking everything into account, the visitors are unlikely to spoil Southampton’s party at St. Mary’s Stadium. You should bear in mind that the Saints recorded a thrilling 4-3 win over the Hornets in their last meeting in the English top flight.
Highlighted Player (Jose Fonte):
Born in Penafiel in 1983, Jose Miguel de Rocha Fonte spent his early career in the lower divisions of the Portugal’s league system, and while he did join giants Benfica in 2006, he never made a single league appearance for the Eagles. The loan spell with Crystal Palace proved crucial for the towering defender as he later secured a permanent move to Selhurst Park, performing well in three Championship campaigns. Fonte then surprised everyone when he joined League One side Southampton, but that would prove to be the best decision he has ever made, as he helped the Saints return to the Premier League before establishing himself as one of the leading central defenders in the elite division. Rated for his aerial ability, but also quite capable on the ground, Jose Fonte even caught the eye of England’s top clubs, although a big club move never materialised for him. The late bloomer eventually played himself into the first team plans of Portugal coach Fernando Santos, making his Selecao debut at the age of 30.
