Southampton will take on Fulham on Wednesday evening in a game of round 28 of the English Premier League. Both teams are neighbors in the relegation zone, but the Saints have seven point advantage over their London opponents. Southampton are 18th in the standings and find themselves just a point behind Cardiff who are safe in the 17th spot. Fulham have collected just 17 points thus far and salvation might look beyond them, but given that Claudio Ranieri is their manager, wonders are possible.
