Aston Villa vs. Southampton Match Analysis and Prediction

Two of the Premier League’s early dark horses lock horns this weekend in the Premier League. Villa Park sets to come alive this Sunday as Aston Villa play host to Southampton. The match kickoffs at 3 pm.

Aston Villa is currently third on the rankings while Southampton is battling for the seventh spot. Both sides are earning their deserved plaudits for the start of the season. It is yet to see whether the side will progress past this stage.

On the other hand, Villa tasted their first defeat with a 3-0 loss to Leeds United. Dean Smith’s side, which survived relegation on the last day of the season, won their first four games of the new season. Arguably one of their most massive wins of the decade was their 7-2 win over Liverpool.

The side currently is sitting 12 points from a possible 15, which over a third way of their final tally last season of 35. The side all boast of conceding the least goals in the Premier League with only five goals. Emiliano Martinez has kept three clean sheets: the division’s joint-highest alongside their Sunday opponents Alex McCarthy.

Ings turned into a provider last weekend while setting up both goals scored by Ward Prowse and Adams to an impressive 2-0 win over Everton. The win marked the Toffee’s first defeat of the season. The win also made it four unbeaten games.
