Southampton v Fulham Match Preview & Trends

Parker out to prove he is the man for the rebuild

Relegated Fulham travel to Southampton this weekend with some players playing for their futures, others just playing for pride but the onus will be on Manager Scott Parker. Parker will be keen to use the remaining fixtures to show Fulham owner Tony Khan that he is up to the task of bringing The Cottagers back up to the Premier League next season. It will not be an easy task as Fulham have a number of loanees set to return to their parent clubs but Parker has never been one to shy away from a challenge.

Southampton have scored 61% of their goals in the first half and have conceded at least 1 goal in each of their last 8 games at St. Mary’s Stadium. Ralf Hassenhuttl’s side have won just one of their last 5 Premier League games and have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last 8 home fixtures.Southampton hasn’t conceded against Fulham in their last 3 meetings. In fact, Saints haven’t conceded against The Cottagers in 5 out of the last 6 match-ups. Both teams have scored in Southampton’s last 6 home games.

There have been fewer than 3 goals scored in total in each of Fulham’s last 4 games and Scott Parker’s men have won just one of their last 5 Premier League away matches.Fulham have failed to win in their last 7 matches, conceding at least 1 goal in each of these fixtures. 69% of Fulham’s matches had under 2.5 goals in total and 63% of Fulham’s points have been earned on the road, scoring 64% of their goals away from Craven Cottage

If Fulham win, they would reduce the gap with Southampton to a 10-point difference in the league table, and it would be the end of a 7-match winless streak for The Cottagers and Southampton’s 9th consecutive home match with at least 1 goal conceded.

Key trends

Southampton have picked up an average of 1.41 Points Per Game in their 17 matches played at home

Fulham’s average Points Per Game in their 17 away games is 1.

Southampton conceded at least 1 goal in each of their last 8 matches.
