Worth mentioning: Southampton’s matches are a guarantee for goals of late as five of their previous seven outings produced over 2,5 goals (four went over 3,5), while six saw both involved sides hitting the back of the nets, including each of the last four encounters. The team did not finish any of their last five home matches in a draw and recorded three victories and two losses in the process. Twelve of the last thirteen games played at St Mary witnessed goals at both ends.
After collecting 40 points, which is considered enough for survival, Bournemouth slowed down the tempo and won only one of their previous five encounters and lost three in the process. The last game with Fulham is the perfect example, as the Cherries lost at home to already relegated Fulham. No draw has been registered in the teams last nineteen away matches.
