Huddersfield Town vs Southampton Live | English Premier League on Saturday, 23 December 2017 | Kick-Off: 15:00 UK | Venue: St. Mary’s Stadium (Southampton)
Southampton dropped to 12 in the Premier League standings after losing consecutive ties with Leicester City and Chelsea. The Saints will be eager to recover this weekend when they welcome the newcomer from the league, Huddersfield Town, at St Mary’s Stadium.
The task of Mauricio Pellegrino should not be as easy a task as the odds suggest, because the Terriers have been very prolific lately. The visitors will meet after two wins in the last three league games and have three points behind their counterparts in the center of the table.
While Steve Mountie’s acquisition this summer was mainly responsible for the last touch so far this season, the goals scored by other offensive figures against Watford this weekend. David Wagner may be delighted to know that one of his main tastes of the last period of the Championship, Elias Kachunga, was the one that opened the dead-end on Vicarage Road. In addition, Aaron Mooy completed a double, while Laurent Depoitre also got his name on the score sheet.
The Saints were able to recover from a 1-4 loss to Leicester City ten days ago. They only conceded a goal to defending champion Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. Interestingly, Pellegrino relied on both Charlie Austin (entered as a submarine) and Dusan Tadic for the blues clash, which means that this duo should be ready to have a positive impact on the Terriers.
