The two struggling sides are set to face off against each other at the St. Mary’s Stadium, with Southampton looking to take on Brighton & Hove Albion.
The Saints are still working to find the right balance following a nightmarish last season when they barely avoided relegation. Although they have defeated Crystal Palace by two goals to nil on the road in the previous fixture, the two straight losses, to Everton and Leicester City, as well as, a scoreless 0-0 draw with Burnley demonstrated Mark Hughes still have immense problems getting the most out of his players.
The similar situation is happening at the Falmer Stadium, as the Seagulls also suffered two defeats so far, having lost to Liverpool and Watford on the road, while they barely managed to annul Fulham’s 2-goal lead in the last round, only to get out of it with a draw. However, a 3-2 victory over Manchester United might show Chris Hughton a path to guide his side through if looking to preserve a top-flight status for another season.
According to the latest reports, both managers are going to have all of their players fit and ready for the encounter. It’s vital for the visitors to see Jose Izquierdo and Florin Andone back to action after a few weeks of absence.
