Only a week and a half ago the table made for grim reading for the Saints, with their clash with Aston Villa taking on the appearance of a vital six-pointer.
They now hold a four-point cushion over the drop zone after wins in that game and then subsequently over Chelsea – both by two goal margins – as well as a draw with ninth-placed Palace at the weekend.
However, Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men were a tad fortunate in that most recent clash as the Eagles looked comfortable following their opener, with the in-form Danny Ings rescuing the Saints as he pounced on a calamitous back pass to level the scores.
Spurs To Win And Both Teams To Score
Spurs also had to rely upon an equalizer as they came from behind twice to earn a point at Norwich. That’s hardly a good result for Jose Mourinho’s men and leaves them five points adrift of Chelsea in fourth, though this was the first time the ‘Special One’ has failed to beat a team beyond the big guns since returning to the dugout.
Excluding Man Utd, Bayern and Chelsea, he’s overseen six wins from seven unbeaten outings now across all competitions, though with both teams scoring in six of these, he still has plenty of work to do with that backline.
Danny Ings To Score Anytime
Both sides have also found the net in 13 of Southampton’s last 16 outings in the league or against top-flight opponents in cup action.
That includes seven of their nine defeats during this time, and with Danny Ings having now netted eight goals in his last nine matches they certainly possess the firepower to register on the board.
Indeed, they’ve scored in all but one of their 10 encounters with either the top eight in the table or Arsenal across all competitions, though having gone just W1-D3-L6 in these fixtures we’d have to side with the visitors.
